A storm develops near the east coast tonight (Wednesday night), but it’s too far east to give us snow.
Any snow we get will be leftovers from lake-effect snows from Lake ERIE. Perhaps a dusting overnight.
Then the much-awaited storm for Friday skips by the populated areas of the east coast and builds up offshore, but too far away to give us much more than an inch or two of snow in the northeast corridor of cities.
The tardy building of these storms, followed by strong high pressure systems will give us bitterly cold and windy days.
