It has been almost a month for most locations since the last decent rainfall. A widespread rainfall event is expected late Sunday through early Monday as an area of low pressure tracks form the Gulf of Mexico across the local area along a stalled frontal boundary. Widespread rainfall amounts of 1-3 inches are possible Sunday through early Wednesday with an unsettled weather pattern in place. Conditions will turn cooler and drier for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!

#BREAKING: Sketch released of possible gunman who shot Meteorologist Patrick Crawford KCEN #oursuperman http://www.kcentv.com/story/27665001/sketch-released-of-man-who-shot-kcen-meteorologist-patrick-crawford
The system that was supposed to bring rain to the Southeast and had a chance to put down some mountain snow has really weakened lately...so this is a pretty big bust in my opinion. I won't get into model blaming--I take my lumps for getting too ahead of myself on even the chances. It will remain squashed to the south, much lighter amounts too, and probably won't reach TN, NC line, with rain amounts tapering off rapidly once it gets east of the Mississippi River on Friday night into Saturday. Deep South will remain the wettest for a while. Next up is a soaking wet Monday as it appears now in all the Southeast, with the Christmas Eve storm right on it's heels. The timing of rain will be adjusted in this extremely fast flow. This Christmas Eve storm is the one that sets up a different pattern, but no need to even touch that yet.

NAM and GFS 24 hour totals on this Friday Night-Saturday Night event. It's more supressed on GFS. The amounts on European would be a blend of the two (so far). This is going to be a case where I have to pull out the MesoScale forecast book in the northern Piedmont and foothills of NC, southern Virginia it appears, since everything is very marginal, isothermal profiles, Neutral 850 warm advection and lots of dynamic cooling potential IF the heavy precip rates occur where it's barely cold enough, namely north of Interstate 40, in the mountains of TN, NC and southern third of Virginia. If you live there, you know how these situations can go. Things like how clear are the skies overnight Friday, does the High stay in perfect damming position, when does precip arrive? I dissect a lot of data and meso scale effects that models can't handle when marginal calls like this are so borderline between wet snow, mixed, sleet and just cold rain. Full update after European run at wxsouth. After this, there's lots to follow as well.
