A storm forms off the east coast, with the warm air it brings in producing snow over the mid-atlantic states.
From the National Weather Service….
WITH ALL OF THESE FACTORS…SNOWFALL FORECAST IS CHALLENGING WITH
THE POTENTIAL OF ONLY A DUSTING IN SOME SPOTS WITH A NARROW BAND OF
A FEW INCHES NOT TOO FAR AWAY FROM IT. THERE COULD ALSO BE EXTENDED
PERIODS WHERE NO SNOWFALL IS HAPPENING AND IT WILL ALMOST SEEM LIKE
2 SEPARATE EVENTS FOR SOME LOCATIONS. HAVE GONE WITH A QPF AXIS
ORIENTED WNW/ESE CUTTING ACROSS CENTRAL LONG ISLAND. STILL LOOKS
LIKE WE WILL FALL SHORT OF ANY ADVISORY CRITERIA. CURRENT SNOW
FORECAST CALLS FOR 1 TO 2 INCHES THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT FOR ALL
LOCATIONS EXCEPT LONG ISLAND…WHERE 2 TO 3 INCHES OF SNOW IS
EXPECTED TO FALL.
So it looks like light, but variable amounts of snow through Sunday morning.
After than, a series of low pressure systems pass through this week.
They will reenforce the cold air, keeping temperatures below freezing.
But the coldest air will stay locked up to our north.
It’s hard to tell yet which if any of them will form into a major snow storm, so listen to the forecasts for the rest of the week.
