The GFS picked up on this day not too long ago and the NAM has thrown a wonky solution into the mix. As of right now, both models are showing a very broad, deep longwave traversing the northern CONUS with a shortwave impulse swinging out of the Rockies and into NE/KS. Very deep moisture is already in place across much of Nebraska and Iowa around 68-72F and should probably be in the upper-60s at least come Sunday morning.

I've seen this mentioned at different times and wonder why?

Currently I am looking at Sunday in Eastern NE, NE KS and possibly Central MN. GFS looks better than NAM (Likely an entirely different topic of conversation), but I notice that I can pick various model runs eg 12Z 18Z 0Z 6Z 12Z.

Now, I would assume that the closest run to the time of initiation that you're looking for would be the best. But from what a few have said, some model runs are not as well... [Read More]
