-There will be snow. This is not a 'one and done' scenario if you live in the Great Lakes, where there is currently a snowstorm occurring. I believe that this is the storm we needed to get the cold air in to stay. For instance, because Chicago is in the middle of the snow, we came across temperature forecasts and found not a single day reaching into the 50s for the next week.
-The long range forecasts are looking very dismal, to be honest. If the Wave 1 GPM values suddenly dive as shown above, I would not be surprised to see the +AO/+NAO regime once again take the reins.
-Henry Margusity, an Accuweather Meteorologist I closely follow, looks to be too caught up in the pattern change. He is predicting a major flip to cold, but unless something dramatically changes, I am not seeing January becoming stone cold and freakishly snowy.
