Chicago Slop-Storm? The GFS computer run is hinting at a few inches of slushy, sloppy snow for Chicago and Detroit by Saturday morning of next week - in all probability this storm will pass off well south of Minnesota. No significant accumulation is in sight for the next 7-10 days.
Another Smack? The 16-Day GFS model brings another Nanook airmass south of the border between Dec. 6 and Dec. 10, highs in the teens, nights in single digits to near zero. No tip-toeing into winter this year...
