We may not be done with snowApril 6th, 2013 at 3:17 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Click the images to enlarge. These are the GFS images from the Sat. morning model run for Weds. afternoon and for April 14 evening. The first shows that the GFS is again a touch farther south with the low on Weds. (if you’ve been reading the GRR NWS discussions, they have been predicting this for at least 4 days now) and I’ve mentioned it too. BTW, the Sunday AM models are a touch farther north now. It looks like a pretty good soaking from Monday to Weds., esp. south of G.R. The European gives G.R. 2.77″ of rain by Friday midday. We may very well get a thunderstorm in the mix, esp. south of G.R. The second shows what would likely be a little light snow. It’s the GFS, so take it with a grain of salt…but the model is not showing a warm pattern for the Great Lakes. Good news for fruit farmers. The European has been quite consistent, showing a cool, soaking rain Weds. The Euro. also has a few snow showers here late next Friday. The warmest temperatures are this Sat. evening (close to 60) and again Tues. PM (upper 50s – could reach the 60s south of G.R. if the warm front can get thru). The Euro. looks pretty chilly from Weds. night to at least Sat. AM.
