    Winter Storm Watches and Warnings for the Deep South and East Coast -CLOSED-

    Maps are original top, newest on bottom.

    They are still considering whether to add North Alabama, but right now, my county is in it. (darker blue areas)

    ETA: Added freezing rain now for OK and AR (ran out of room on thread title) freezing rain in purple

    ETA2: they just added North Georgia to the Winter Storm Watch

    ETA3: just increased the Alabama area (I'm gonna run out of room for maps)

    ETA4: they just removed the added AL area, I think it must be in process of changing again?? posting the changed map in post #23

    ETA5: all of North Alabama now under WSW, added another part of TN too and part of LA and more of AR and MS

    ETA6: out of room for maps on this post, all new maps will be down in thread. More of TN has been added and I suspect a lot more will be added as well as I expect them to add parts of the Carolinas and Virginia before it's all done.

    ETA7: this looks to be a huge ice event for most of us (MS, part of AL and GA) with some areas getting a lot of snow (AR, TN) and a lot of "mix"

    blah, won't post right

    Local weather guy said NWS is still uncertain how this will play out (accumulations and how far North it will extend so they are playing it "safe" and being "conservative").

    So, things could end up worse than they are forecasting for now, or not.

    I really do feel for you folks down south. This must be devastating to so many people unprepared for sustained bad weather like this. It's bad enough up here but we're used to it and are prepared. I especially feel for the retired people who can not afford the extra heating costs etc.

    I'm in the middle of this one too, but all I can think is, get used to it.
    It's only going to get colder each year, for a while.
    And to think, I left the northeast to get away from this(and raving libtards). Maybe costa rica doesn't sound so bad after all.

    I have been telling everyone the same as I expect next winter to be the same or just little worse. This is the second year in a row with two-thirds of the continental U.S. covered with snow.

    I think most of the United States is sick of this winter, especially the northeast. More snow for us in Oklahoma is forecast for Monday. I am ready to take my test for accident and health insurance so I can start my new job but having to wait until later next week when it will be warmer with no storms and clear roads.

    Worried that this spring will be another bad tornado season here.

    Everyone in the path of these storms please get preps in order and stay safe!

    A POTENT STORM SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO DEVELOP ALONG THE NORTHERN
    GULF OF MEXICO...THEN SPREAD PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE TENNESSEE
    VALLEY DURING THE FIRST HALF OF NEXT WEEK. DUE TO THE COLD AIR IN
    PLACE... WINTRY PRECIPITATION IS POSSIBLE.

    THIS SYSTEM SHOULD BEGIN MAKING ITS PRESENCE FELT BEGINNING EARLY
    MONDAY....AS A WINTRY MIX AFFECTS THE TENNESSEE VALLEY. THE
    HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SYSTEM IS EXPECTED
    FROM MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY...WHERE ACCUMULATING SNOW AND/OR ICE
    IS A POSSIBILITY. EXACT FORECAST DETAILS...SUCH AS TIMING...
    PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS AND TYPES IS UNCERTAIN AT THIS TIME.
    HOWEVER...CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING THAT SOME FORM OF WINTRY
    PRECIPITATION IS LIKELY.

    ...LIKELIHOOD OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION INCREASING ACROSS NORTHERN
    GEORGIA FOR MONDAY NIGHT AND EARLY TUESDAY...

    A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE EAST ACROSS THE GULF STATES MONDAY
    INTO TUESDAY. AS A RESULT...ACCUMULATING WINTRY PRECIPITATION IS
    POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF NORTHERN GEORGIA.

    AT THIS TIME...THE AREA WITH THE HIGHEST POTENTIAL FOR
    ACCUMULATING SNOW IS ALONG AND NORTH OF A LINE FROM CHATTOOGAVILLE TO
    WALESKA TO CLEVELAND. FURTHER SOUTH...THERE IS SOME POTENTIAL FOR A
    WINTRY MIX.

    THERE IS STILL A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY REGARDING THIS SYSTEM. EVEN A
    SMALL CHANGE IN THE LOW PRESSURE TRACK COULD GREATLY IMPACT THE
    AMOUNT OF PRECIPITATION THAT FALLS...AND WHAT TYPE OF PRECIPITATION
    THAT FALLS. IT IS TOO EARLY FOR DETERMINISTIC SNOWFALL OR ICE
    AMOUNTS...HOWEVER THESE FORECASTS WILL BECOME MORE CLEAR SUNDAY
    INTO EARLY MONDAY. WINTER STORM WATCHES AND WARNINGS MAY BE NEEDED
    WITH LATER FORECASTS.

    LISTEN TO NOAA WEATHER RADIO OR YOU LOCAL MEDIA FOR THE LATEST
    UPDATES ON THIS DEVELOPING SITUATION. YOU CAN ALSO ACCESS YOUR
    LOCAL FORECAST AT WEATHER.GOV/ATLANTA.

    February 08, 2014; 9:04 PM


    A large, slow-moving storm may affect the Southern and Eastern states next week with snow, ice and rain. However, the storm may ultimately be a pattern changer.

    Before this storm impacts the eastern half of the United States, another will spread accumulating snow across the Northeast on Sunday.

    Then, a storm that is forecast to brew could cause major problems.

    According to Southern Weather Expert Dan Kottlowski, "Lingering cold air and plenty of moisture could lead to an extended period of snow and ice in portions of the South next week."

    I hope to post as many different forecasts, maps, warnings etc as possible as things change (I hope you guys will to, because I certainly don't see all of them). I want to see how things change and who (weather site) is right/wrong on the forecast; I know that the Birmingham/Anniston NWS offices have had a lousy track record year round for my AO.

    TWC shows OK gets snow, AR gets smacked and Memphis gets snow, my AO, not so much

    North Georgia (includes the North Atlanta area) is now under the Winter Storm Watch too and MO you are under a Winter Weather Advisory, so you'll probably be added next.

    It seems Orion split, so the South will be getting hit and the North will get hit too (maybe twice).

    ETA: they just included ALL of metro Atlanta

    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON MS
    349 AM CST SUN FEB 9 2014

    ...WINTER STORM WATCH HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR THE NORTHERN PORTION OF THE
    ARKLAMISS REGION FOR MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY...

    .AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE COMBINED WITH A SERIES OF SURFACE WAVES
    ALONG A FRONTAL BOUNDARY IN THE GULF COASTAL AREA WILL BRING A RISK
    OF A MIX BAG OF WINTER PRECIPITATION FOR MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY.
    THE WINTER PRECIPITATION WILL BE IN THE PRIMARY FORM OF FREEZING
    RAIN...LIGHT SNOW...AND SLEET. ICE ACCUMULATIONS WITH THE FREEZING
    RAIN WILL BE AT LEAST ONE QUARTER OF AN INCH. THIS WILL LEAD TO ICING
    OF BRIDGES...OVERPASSES...ROADWAYS...TREES AND ELEVATED SURFACES FOR
    HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS. THERE MAY ALSO BE SOME POWER OUTAGES
    DUE TO THE ACCUMULATION OF ICE ON POWER LINES AND SOME FALLEN
    BRANCHES ON POWER LINES.

    THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE FOR LOCATIONS ALONG AND NORTH OF THE HIGHWAY
    82 CORRIDOR WHERE SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATIONS OF SNOW AND ICE ARE MOST
    LIKELY. FOR LOCATIONS SOUTH OF THE HIGHWAY 82 CORRIDOR...THE PRIMARY
    CONCERN COULD BE FREEZING RAIN...WITH SIGNIFICANT ICE ACCUMULATIONS
    POSSIBLE FROM LATE MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY MORNING.

    PERSONS PLANNING TRAVEL OVER NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE ARKLAMISS
    REGION SHOULD PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE FORECAST CONCERNING THIS
    POTENTIAL WINTER WEATHER EVENT. FOR MUCH MORE INFORMATION FROM YOUR

    Agreed. Although last week we got hit pretty hard here in E.TN with that ice and snow. Speaking of which, that was some of the oddest snow I have ever seen.

    But yea, a winter weather system passing south of us is weirdsville daddyo.

    The ice they keep mentioning is my concern - at this point, it still seems to be a guessing game. Thanks for posting all of the info!

    Yep, ice is a big part of the forecast. (I have saved, but not posted, the day & night forecast map of the rain/snow/ice from Sun night to Wed night just for a comparison basis later)

    ETA: the forecast maps shows ice way down into LA and lower MS that aren't even in the winter storm watch

    here is the Tuesday map from TWC (ice is forecast other times between now & Wed night, but this is the biggest area at one time)

    ETA: this map and the other 12 hr snapshots don't match up very well with what they show on TV

    I keep seeing that part of TX, OK, NE and other states will get ice too, but haven't seen them added to the WS watch.

    The west is getting dumped on with snow by the foot in places.

    map of states in the West under Winter Storm Warning and getting dumped on by Orion. Maybe it is a blessing? that it is going to split in two? Part coming South and part going North.

    I'm thinking y'all may want to start thinking of this as the new normal and prepare accordingly.

    I think that pretty much applies to the whole US/world; I've been preparing (for the cold) for years (as much as DH and finances let me anyway). On the bright side, I love snow.

    It's ok at first, but after a while especially after repeated snow falls that just don't seem to go away it gets really old and can't wait for the thaw and be happier than you thought you would ever be to see mud.

    I know. I still remember some of the years that we still had some pockets of snow on the ground in IN at the end of May (I think 1977 was one year) and I spent two winters living in WI and decided summer was never going to arrive.

    Even so, I love a good snow (6+ inches) once in awhile and miss it, but it does belong in it's season and I always look forward to spring.

    ETA: and this storm seems like it is going to send me 2-3 inches of sleet, a mix of snow flurries, followed by freezing rain then back to another inch or so of sleet and followed once again by some freezing rain and then snow flurries or along those lines. bummer

    current forecast:
    • Monday A 30 percent chance of rain after 9am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 39. North wind 5 to 10 mph.
    • Monday Night A chance of rain before 9pm, then rain likely, possibly mixed with sleet between 9pm and midnight, then snow, possibly mixed with freezing rain and sleet after midnight. Low around 30. North wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow and sleet accumulation of less than one inch possible.
    • Tuesday Snow and sleet likely before noon, then a chance of rain, freezing rain, and sleet. Cloudy, with a high near 35. Northeast wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New snow and sleet accumulation of around 2 inches.
    • Tuesday Night A chance of rain, snow, and sleet. Cloudy, with a low around 32. Chance of precipitation is 40%.
    • Wednesday A 30 percent chance of rain. Cloudy, with a high near 42.

    I just got a winter storm watch text for 2/12 on my phone today. I am in W. Central GA. Hope it misses us. I missed two days of work during the last one and don't need to do that again

    here is the Tuesday map from TWC (ice is forecast other times between now & Wed night, but this is the biggest area at one time)

    ETA: this map and the other 12 hr snapshots don't match up very well with what they show on TV
    At least this one is starting Monday EVENING, and happening overnight, so hopefully the DOT can't use the excuse of "we couldn't pre-treat because there were CARS on the road!" and the school admins will have the good sense not to attempt to open the schools if the roads are icy.

    Lilbitsnana, are you getting your forecasts from the NWS or the Weather Channel?

    My NWS link here in Atlanta doesn't give maps that are nearly as nice as yours.

    Time to go re-check the stores of Kerosene --pretty sure I'm fine but want to be 100% sure...

    yep, they added some areas in GA and in LA, not sure how it will all play out in the end, they seem to be still a little "uncertain".
