Ice in Oshkosh
12GFS showing a fun snow event for this weekend. Working on a member blog discussing the uncertainty. 
Last of the storm slowly moving out. Mostly rain at this point. 
Slipping deeper into the current weather pattern. Changes coming in early March when upper level pattern retrogrades.
Want to push an update tonight before we start talking Thursday and this weekend. Lot of new stuff coming. 
Thought it was interesting that the 00Z Canadian run had two camps for the weekend storm. Camp A aligns with GFS, camp B is off to the east and includes the operational. I wonder what the 12Z will look like
Very happy with the snow forecast last night. 7" amounts were mentioned for snow belt. Barely missed in Eau Claire but could not have predicted that. Freezing rain was generally correct, on the lower end of the expected range. Still snowing in the UP of Michigan.
Forecast prepared for Saturday night but need to wait until 12Z model run complete to publish. Too much disagreement between models this morning mostly in terms of location. The strength differences we can deal with.
SNOW DEPTH - 14-25" of snow on the ground in northern Wisconsin. You will add to that snow-pack this weekend with the third winter storm in the last seven days. Meanwhile southern Wisconsin has forgotten what snow looks like.
Winter Storm Warning issued. Better early than never I guess! Storm arrives after 6PM Saturday night.
