Hit and miss storms …this week they miss us

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.
Then the other side of the weekend high pressure system bring us back to above normal temperatures by Tuesday or Wednesday next week.

Watch the lows pop up off the coast, move away and keep pushing the cold air over us (blue dashed lines). See:
