Canadian & European Models Shifting Storm South.
Just as I have been suspecting all along, this mornings 12Z/5 AM MST run of the Canadian (CMC) model, and the European (ECMWF) model, are shifting the potent mid-upper level storm futher west, and south through Arizona on New Years Day, and into northwestern Mexico by Wednesday. This of course favors a colder and snowier Winter Storm for Arizona, New Mexico, and parts of west Texas.

(A note on the timeline on the graphs above)-
12/27= 12Z/5 AM MST on Dec 27th.
00/28= 00Z/5 PM MST on Dec 27th.
12/28= 12Z/5 AM MST on Dec 28th.
00/29= 00Z/5 PM MST on Dec 28th.
The blue plus sign is the initiation time of the models forecast. The blue numbers at the bottom of the graphs (12,24,48,72,etc) are the forecast hours from the initiation time. So these graphs are forecasting high and low temperatures, and total liquid precipitation through 240 hours, or the next 10 days.
