Let's make this the thread for this years 'Winter Storm Central'. :)
Here is the list of the winter storm names TWC will use;.

One of the names is the name of our 18th U.S. president.

Two of the names make me think of Star Fox (rival storms if you will), while another makes me think of Star Trek.  Of course, this is the group that brought us "Q" as a name last year.  B)

Whenever you get a broad upper level trough, you can expect little impulses or shortwave troughs to ride along the periphery of the main upper level trough.  Those disturbances end up as your Alberta clippers, and they happen all the time.

Is it unusual to see a parade of clippers swing through the US this early in the season though? I thought they usually don't dive in until November and later.

It's a little unusual for October, but it has happened before in the past.  This trough is quite significant and will bring sub-freezing temperatures throughout my area this weekend, and Bluefield, WV just reported the first snowflakes of the season.

It sounds like I've got it coming.  Windchills have already been hitting the single digits, and I have a Winter Weather Advisory.  There's a chance of anything from no precipitation to freezing rain to heavy snow.  Some local forecasts claim that up to a foot or so of the white stuff may be in the works, but nobody believes it.

If you don't mind me asking, what part of Texas do you live in?

There's an saying about how if Dallas sees snow or ice, Atlanta will see it too. The only model (since this morning when I checked) that gives us a chance at seeing any wintry precipitation is the Canadian, it gives us ice. I don't have to explain my extreme doubts about that. The GFS did for a few runs show a freezing rain to rain scenario though.

I'm in the panhandle.  It's like a different state when it comes to cold, but it still gets the Texas heat in the summer.

Oh ok, that's makes sense then. Yeah it's literally night and day in the TX panhandle compared to the rest of the state. The only time we really see temperature extremes like that in GA is when there's a CAD (Cold Air Damming) event setting up.

I guess I had better say, "Atlanta, get ready," because Dallas may see snow or ice by Monday.  Dallas now has a Winter Storm Warning in effect until 12 pm on Monday.

This is what I'm thinking will happen here in Atlanta based on what the computer models have been saying.
Mon Night: Freezing Rain (maybe some brief snow/sleet pellets)
Tuesday: Cold Rain
Tuesday Night: Rain changing to some light snow (wraparound snow basically if we're lucky)

Anyone have a link to storm reports (regarding this winter storm) like the one TWC uses on air?
