THIS IS A COPY OF AN EMAIL I SEND OUT TO JAY, BRIAN, AND BEN. JUST SOME THOUGHTS ON WHAT THE FORECAST MODELS ARE DOING. IT MAY OR MAY NOT REFLECT THE FINAL FORECAST. BE SURE TO VISIT OUR WEATHER PAGE FOR UPDATES. –SCOT MUNDT
Cold temps may be here to stay. GFS is trying to show a ridge, but I’m not sure if it will completely move into eastern SD. With that being said, eastern SD will mostly likely stay near average (snow pack helps), while western SD warms above average (thanks to no snow and ridge).
GFS and EURO are hinting at another system for Saturday. I think the best chance for precip will be in NW IA, so have a 20 pop in.
As we look down the road (beyond) the next seven days, not much shows on the GFS. As we look at the cycle, December 19 and December 25 stick out. December 19 is due to a clipper that moved through on November 4th. December 25th is due to the big trof that developed on November 10/11. I’ll continue to watch these to see if anything pans out.
