Major winter storm from Plains to the Atlantic
A light snow event is in progress outside now in the St. Louis area, with already a dusting on the ground. This observation is just from periodic glances out the window - as I'm still battling a severe cold here, which has pretty much shut me down since Friday. Entering day 4 now of little sleep and continuous Nyquil doses. Seems to be letting up slightly but still one of the more miserable episodes I've had in maybe 8 years. It remains to be seen whether I'll be up to doing anything with this upcoming storm.
Models have this system laying down a continuous 200-mile wide swath of snow and ice from the Rockies all the way to the Atlantic. The GFS model is hitting most of West Virginia with one to two feet of snow in an event that could match or exceed the one in December. St. Louis looks to be right on the northern edge of the storm, with a slight deviation in the track meaning either a major storm or nothing at all.
