Late Night Data 1/30

Late night run of NOAA's Global forecast model is in and wanted to show you the potential of this storm. It isn't just for the KFVS viewing area, but for much of the country including the St. Louis area, north central Illinois and Indiana.

My biggest concern for the KFVS viewing area is ice with this system. It all depends on how the storm tracks. If it is further south, then we could have more sleet and snow and less ice. If it tracks further north than it could be all rain.

Here is the 0z (6pm CT) GFS model's accumulated freezing rain map.

Needless to say, this is going to be a BIG storm. Stay tuned...

I wish you and the other ones on the weather team would bring back the weather and show more of the precipation maps and radar like you used to do. It was helpful especially with this storm moving in on Tuesday for the northern counties. I have to drive and it would be nice to see that in the morning like it used to be. Channel 12 hs changed in the forcast showing.
