Three Different Storm Tracks

February 1, 2012, 5:15 PM by Scot Mundt

Three Different Storm Tracks
To determine what kind of weather is headed toward KELOLAND, we tend to look at three computer models: the American, Canadian and European.

The American model brings the storm system from southern Kansas to southern Illinois Friday evening through Saturday afternoon.

The Canadian model is a little farther south and moves it from eastern Oklahoma to eastern Missouri during the same time.

While the European model is the farthest north and the slowest. It moves it from central Kansas to northern Iowa from Friday evening to Sunday evening.

A typical winter storm dumps its heaviest snow about one hundred to one hundred fifty miles to the north and northwest of the low. Meaning the European model is the one trying to give the most snow to KELOLAND.

Of course, all three have their own biases to forecasting the weather and it's our job to figure out those biases and put a forecast together. It should be an interesting couple of days.
