If I am reading those models correctly it looks like some residents and areas of central Texas could receive 9 in. three quarters of a foot of snow per hour especially that last model.

Those are totals not rates.

Thank you for clearing that up for me, Andrew. Do any of you know what direction that chunk of precipitation might be moving in?

And there you have it...the 00z has lost it, showing seasonal temperatures, maybe a smidgen cooler than average.

Maybe a bad model run???? :(

Looking like a bad run to me. You don't have this just disappear:

Yeah. I was posting some questions about this on the other thread--should have placed in here. Ed, how many more runs like this before you start making Ike-type preparations?!

I forgot about this thread. Ice would be just a nuisance (bad if in significant amounts). Can't do too much fun stuff with ice except skate. On the other hand though it would be a happy day if work got cancelled as Ed would say! :)
