Computer models starting to flop, we may only get 2 or 3 inchesPosted Thursday, January 28, 2010, at 10:00 AM
Winter Storm "Bumblebee Man" is coming together nicely over Texas. Here's the current (9:30 AM CST) national radar image:
The storms looks good on infrared satellite:
However, the computer models are suggesting that the storm will be weaker once it arrives here, with a track slightly more to the south. The latest computer-generated guess/forecast from the National Weather Service shows Cape Girardeau receiving only 3.7 inches of total snow accumulation instead of the 5.2 projected yesterday.
Heavy snow is still expected along the US 60 axis, with 8.0 inches predicted for Poplar Bluff. A slight northward jog in the storm could bring that heavy snow to Cape Girardeau, but this looks less likely than it did yesterday. AccuWeather.com is projecting over 7 inches for Cape Girardeau, but I'm having a hard time believing that.
If anything, the storm could track more to the south, leaving us with squat.
