Very slight, subtle warming in the latest model runs -- perhaps only raising our temps by 1 degree or so -- could be setting stage for a minor to moderate ice storm.
And if the trend continues, our winter storm might become nothing more than a bone-chilling, raw, cold rain.
The latest NAM -- which has been the model of choice for snow lovers, warmed up every so slightly on its 12z run.
Yet, the difference between 30.8 and 32.3 degrees is, obviously, enormous.
Is it over? Hardly. We could still see a burst of snow to start --- maybe even an inch or two.
But it's looking more like the transition to freezing rain will be quick -- then the question is: how long does THAT last. Hopefully, the change to a cold rain will come quickly -- I don't know anybody from around here rooting for an ice storm.
Adjusted percentages coming later today.
