Midwest Potential Storm Analysis

Right now, the models aren't friendly with the concept of a Midwest storm. This is due to a high pressure system that will be placed in the Great Lakes.
All models are taking the low south into the Gulf of Mexico, as displayed in the below picture.
Yes, there could be a Nor' Easter, and I will mention that in a later post.
If the high pressure isn't over the Great Lakes, the following track may occur.
However, do not lose faith in this storm, Midwesterners.
The models are initiating what is known as a 'Midrange swing.'
This is when the models suddenly dive south.
Sometimes, they will work their way back up north, and other times not.

For my opinion on if it will work its way back north, I think I won't say anything at the moment.
I will provide my opinion when the storm gets onshore to the US.

We are still a week away.
There is, and I do not exaggerate this, PLENTY of time for the models to change.

I will provide a SNOWcast eventually, so stay tuned to the Winter Storm Page and new posts for more information.
