Euro has a rain/snow mix for some far sw se texas counties, but the operational models for the most part dont agree with their ensembles , the eps is by far the most “ aggressive with snow potential here “ , most likely scenario is the snow falls out in west texas, id only give about a 5% chance that we see any snowflakes here, im not getting my hopes up, just found it interesting that esnembles are aggressive on march snow in texas, plus even if we do see anything the temperatures are going to be so marginal that any snowflake will melt on contact, no accumulations

The latest snowfall on record for central Texas and northern potions of SE Texas was April 7, 2007 when 1-4 inches of snow accumulated.I remember that day well.

Wow April 7th? Thats nuts, i knew its possible to get snow this far south in march but april? That must have been one heck of a dynamic system to produce snow, also some of the GEFS members do suggest maybe some flurries make it into our region, though the EPS is far more aggressive with that idea

I noticed yesterday the models were dry for us and the CPC forecast was wet for us. Then today the models turned wetter and the CPC forecast turned drier. Makes zero sense :lol:

Cpv17 i figure it most be the ensembles they are looking at, definitely is head scratching though😂😂, though intriguing to see the euro starts to hint at a cut off upper low at the end of its run, we know what those can do
I also think the CPC has trended drier simply because they want to see if the global models are going to consistently be wet like todays runs or if they are going to back off to a more dry solution

Interesting to see the GFS is trying to develop what may be a cut off upper low out in the desert SW in the medium range, that could make things interesting going forward

May 10-17. Looks like a major low blasting across the Midwest with The Last FROPA of the season digging hard and lifting some hot, humid air: EFS, GEFS, GEPS Ensembles have all bought into mega rain.
