New Nasa Images

This is the Ferrar Glacier, Antarctica. This past month, NASA, the U.S. Geological Survey, and the British Antarctic Survey jointly developed this accurate image of the 7th Continent. The Full Story from NASA's Earth Observatory can be found here.

This is independent of the recent stories that have been released expecting a mild winter. The Climate Prediction Center is building it's forecast off of the La Nina in the Pacific which historically brings milder temperatures to much of the US . I am not a big fan of this- besides my love of snow. They are limited by their computer models, and restrictions of data out of the Pacific. Recently they mis-identified the position of the El Nino, which led to a bad forecast. Besides, how often does a 3 month forecast work out. It's not any better than the 7 Day I show no TV. I would venture to say that because they are saying mild, we have a better shot of it turning out cold. We have to watch the storm this weekend to see how the pattern will set up. But at this time- we may have a better shot of over running light snow on Sunday if it arrives early enough. The wrap around snow for the east will depend on the path of the Low. This path will likely produce a modest snow storm - but for whom. Best bet now would be Detroit and Chicago.
I will have more on this tomorrow, with a few model outlooks.
