It doesn't specifically say that on the link provided. It does mention to see the "text" for notes. You have to go to the home page and then click on the "forecast text" link then read the 5-10 day notes.

Took me a moment to figure it out myself.

LOL, so CC posts a link to a picture that clearly shows we are getting 1-4" of snow in the next week or so, then gets butthurt when people don't somehow magically know that some random paerts of the state might get 5-10" of snow? Thats logical.

Man, did you read about that guy in the south? Shit was crazy. Do you think he will go to jail? Chaeck it out.

on the left column click on "forecast text"

Then read this very general text about snow that may or may not hit a portion of lower michigan a few days from now.

Quote:
Tuesday, March 19, 2013

A quick note on the graphics: The solid shading represents snowfall that I think has a pretty good chance of happening (>65-70%). Areas outlined in a solid line are where I think there is a notable chance of the snow indicated by the text within the lined area falling, but confidence is not high enough to use solid shading.

Recent Snowfall: Note, all reports in this write up are preliminary. I do not get full reports to me until after putting this out.

Snows of around 1-4” fell across most of MN, WI, the UP and lower MI as well as far eastern IA and far northern sections of IL and IN yesterday. Lake snows took over things in the UP and western lower MI overnight, adding a few inches to those areas.

Highlights:

Lake snows will continue for the next few days, otherwise things look fairly quiet and cool. A wild card system has been introduced into the weekend for portions of the upper Midwest. 1-4 DAY FORECAST:

Most of the system snows have finished up and lake effect snows will continue to fall across the UP and western lower MI for the next 48 hours. 24 hour totals in the UP snow belts from the Porkies to Copper Harbor and then Munising to Paradise look to be in the 4-10” range from this morning to tomorrow morning and again tomorrow morning into Thursday morning. Some areas will likely see more than 10” fall every 24 hours.

24 hour totals in western lower MI will be a bit more conservative, but still in the 3-8” range in a general fashion, with some isolated heavier totals.
The lake snows will then be tapering off to flurries on Thursday.

Things will be quiet in most if the rest of the region for the rest of this week, with temps running below average. The freeze line looks to sit across the central Midwest for the next 2-3 days, with some warming seen by the very end of the week.

5-10 DAY FORECAST:

The first part of the weekend looks to be quiet and then a wild card storm has been introduced into the forecast for Sunday and Monday. I call it a wild card as it was not indicated by any model in previous runs and is not indicated by all model runs this morning. In any case, the idea calls for snows of 5-12” to fall across the southern of MN, northern of IA, southern of WI and lower MI as well as far northern IL.
Other ideas still call for things to be fairly quiet in most areas for the weekend and first half of next week.

Temps look to remain below average for this period, which will keep the majority of the Northwoods at or below freezing for highs, with above freezing high temps to occur to the south.

11-16 DAY FORECAST:

The forecast for this period sees temps to remain largely below freezing in the Northwoods for most of the region. A bit of light snow will be possible in the Northwoods from time to time, but at this point, no major storms are seen.

The Bottom Line:

Winter will continue to hold tough across the Northwoods. Decent snow cover exists across many areas of the Northwoods and more snow looks to fall in the next week to ten days, with minimal snow loss. Areas outside of the Northwoods are pretty much done for the season in most cases.

In other words, just a bunch of useless jibberish.

Johndee tends to be pretty accurate when storms are coming in, and even his predicted snowfall in the extended forecasts, but this one is pretty damn vague.

I don't know. Seems clear enough that CC and Hoser are willing to stand behind it. Oh wait........................

ok, I think I see the problem.

His graphical page that I linked to is not framed on the site, it is a separate page which is poor coding so it does not have the menu bar on the left hand side. Anyway, the main site http://www.johndee.com/ has the graphical and text link in the top left.

Or, he's really only calling for the possibility of 5-12" of snow across a very limited area, yet he's covering his ass by saying it could be anywhere in the graphic, but likely only in the snowbelt areas, but its a wild card storm so it could be anywhere, and could be up to 12" or could actually be nothing, but might be a trace, but it's still 5-10 days out so it really could be anything and any sort of excuse could be made to change the forecast that might happen but probably wont but you should be prepared for it because its definitely a mild possiblity that we could get anywhere from 0-12" of snow anywhere from indianapolis to copper harbor maybe.

You've been avoiding me for the past year. Shit, I didn't even get a "save the date" notification for your wedding.

I'd be happy to pay up when we meet for you buying me lunch.

You around this weekend? I'll deliver your fee.

lol. I don't want that money, I was joking. I've had some things going on that have severely limited my available free time, hence why I've not been offroading, or doing much of anything else for the last year. In about 6 months I'll be social again.




However, here is the TEXT update for whiterhino and bones:

The first part of the weekend looks to be quiet and then a storm is still indicated to track from the Plains into the Midwest. The models all agree that a storm will move from the Plains into the Midwest, but differ strongly on the results it will bring to the Midwest.

One idea calls for a general 1-5” of snow to fall across MO, IA and most of IL, IN and OH- heaviest in the south. The other idea calls for snows of 6-12” to fall across the southern 1/3rd of MN, most of IA, southern 1/3rd of WI and lower MI as well as northern 1/3rd of IL. Right now I continue to think the first idea holds more merit, but am by no means writing off the idea of the big snows to occur in the central Midwest.

So he's already back pedaling to 1-5".
I've got a couple places in mind for lunch. When will you be here?
