One more shot oughta do it…. then a clipper aspires to greatness on Monday

Based on info talked about in the NWS weather discussion and Washington Post’s Capitol Weather Gang: (I’ve also been looking at weathernj.com.)

Models show indications of a new band of snow forming west of the Hudson River and moving east from 1pm to 3 or so. We could get a quick 1 to 3 inches out of that.

Then, this storm continues to develop as it moves away from us, bring very cold air to the east coast. Low temperatures will be in the 0 to 10 range this week.

Monday’s storm is a clipper from Canada.  Clippers generally skip past us quickly, sometimes developing bands of heavy snow, but rarely do they stop and develop off shore into major nor’easter.  Monday’s clipper has the potential to be a big storm. The stronger the storm, the better the chance of a right turn up the coast to torment us with the possibility of heavy snow.

If it doesn’t get strong, it is likely to skip off well to our south. Then we’ll stay in the deep freeze for the rest of the week.

So keep any eye out for a strong band of snow this afternoon; freezing of slush and snow; and keep your ears open to listen if Monday’s storm overachieves.
