Winter Weather Finally on the Horizon?

For snow and winter lovers, the wait may be almost over. The National Weather Service included the following in their afternoon statement this Monday, Nov. 19:

Long range models are beginning to hone in on the transition to a 
more active regime for next week. The 12z European model (ecmwf) was the most 
bullish in bringing a significant winter storm to the area between 
Monday night and Wednesday. The forecast was consistent with the 
Panhandle Hooker composite for 6+ inch snowfalls at kmsp. The 12z 
GFS trended toward this stormier scenario as well. There is still 
plenty of room for fluctuation in temporal/spatial details with 
this system...but the first notable snowfall of the season is not 
out of the question for early next week.
