Too cold to snow
Not that its too cold, its just that the pattern has the storms being pushed so far south, they don't even show up on the CONUS. Once they form, they go into the gulf into or around FL petering out as they do.
The GFS has one storm on the entire map east of the Miss. Its the 19th and up the coast on the 0z run, 17th on the 6z and a little further inland and a great lakes cutter on the 17th for the 12z run. The 18z run has no storms at all!
This caption is the gfs at 180 hrs total precip - outside the PAC west, no other area picks up more than .5 inches of liquid.
