Southern Snow? Florida Snow? Winter Weather .. Low Forms.... Moves UP the Coast. Reinforcing the COLD COLD Start to 2018. Beat Goes On...

I have a few things to say about the possibility of snow in Florida. The first is it is possible and on rare occasions it does happen. The radar above shows blue near Jacksonville though I haven't heard yet of any actual reports of seeing flakes falling from the air. Secondly, this area will turn into a Winter Low Pressure system that is forecast to cause a coastal snow event in the South and make a run on the NE coast later in the same time period. Good to know that the models that argue during the Hurricane Season are just as argumentative this record breaking winter.

You can take this forecast up with the above referenced news station. Add into the mix the question of could it... would it snow in Tampa? As Tampa seems to dodge every hurricane out there you'd think it will continue dodging winter weather as well. 

Note another recent record was broken from the year 1989 so that's one of the records to beat when it comes to winter weather.

So is Snow possible in Florida?
Mike lays it out on his Facebook Page.

The Maps show it IS cold enough.

Freeze Frost Line goes into North Florida.

Again this is NOT Tropical.
Just saying it again.

Note diving cold Arctic Air.
Strong supply of moisture.
Where they clash..
A Low will set up.

It bobbles about South Florida.
Then takes off towards the Carolinas.
Where exactly it goes....
Anyone's guess.

The coast has a higher chance of seeing snow.
Winter Weather.
Models arguing....
Sound familiar?

Then.... BAMB!

That's one heck of a strong pressure gradient.
And the cold flows South.

Now come on...
Doesn't this seem like the past Hurricane Season.
Here we go again...
Which model do we trust?

Epic storms.
Epic cold.

I'm wearing socks under my booties ... 
It's cold. Very cold.
And I live "Down South"

Just remember.... it could be worse as we could be dealing with a remake of the last Hurricane Season. Well, maybe we will as the so far the run of record breaking weather has not settled down and the January Thaw seems a long ways away.

Always something tropical going on somewhere in the world.

It may be hard to believe while we watch a Low forming off the coast of Florida that is forecast to reinforce this bitter cold spell another week longer!

Ps.... Note the models have about as much in common as Sonny and Cher... and the beat goes on.
Happy 2018!
