Snow everywhere but herePosted Thursday, January 6, 2011, at 3:54 PM
How often does this happen? Memphis, Tennessee, is expecting a major winter storm this weekend, while we'll probably just see flurries.
The latest forecast discussion from Memphis says that the "dynamics with this system are very impressive" and that it may actually deliver more snow than the computer models are currently predicting. The GFS computer model, according to Earl's Weather Page, is projecting a wide area of 3-8 inch snowfalls over Arkansas.
Even far northern Louisiana could see a rare snowfall. That area has at least an 80% chance of receiving over an inch of accumulation.
Meanwhile, Cape Girardeau is stuck in limbo between storms. A weak clipper system tonight and tomorrow could deliver snow to our north and east, while the Memphis storm will pass to the south on Sunday. Unless the Memphis storm makes a sudden and drastic shift to the north, we won't see any more than a dusting -- if that -- over the next few days.
