In this blog I show various storm types.

Keep in mind no two storms are ever EXACTLY alike.

This is an excellent general review from meteorologist Larry Cosgrove of Hockley Texas.

I share it with you now since January-March are key months for these, and as I mentioned in my last 3 blogs dating back to before Christmas to recent days, numerical prediction models are projecting a favorable pattern shift for active snow and ice in many parts of the nation East of the Rockies before this month is done, but nothing to hang your hat on for Metro Atlanta, yet.

EXAMPLE (not a current forecast map, just an illustration, just an example):

Here is a link to another look at storm tracks, but focused on the Mid-Atlantic NOT Georgia:

I always go for a walk when snow is falling I love it so much AND because it’s a kind of real life real world miracle for it to occur, for the microphysics required are so difficult to occur it’s a living miracle to experience it, everything has to be just right.

Since predicting it is so easy everyone should give it a shot themselves and post their results on Facebook etc. Here’s a basic snow forecast formula and forecast decision tree for your use at home and some additional equations used in numerical weather prediction:
