US mid-Atlantic snow storm update

Batten down the hatches, this is going to be a doozy(maps courtesy of Weatherbell) for the mid-Atlantic US and Nova Scotia.  It'll miss us entirely, dangit.  Most of the snow will fall Friday into Saturday.

A quick look at the weather this week.

A sneaky low pressure will drop a couple tenths of an inch of precipitation this evening.  However, due to low temperatures, the snow will likely be in the 15:1 or above ratio.  So we could get 5+cms from this system.

The week ahead looks relatively benign but cold.

Not so in the eastern US.   Major snowstorm shaping up late week (map courtesy of Weatherbell).

Hope springs eternal..

While the clipper has given pretty what was expected in terms of snow.

The models are now turning the Saturday system into another 5-10 cm instead of a 15-20 cm storm.

But hope springs eternal.. rumours of storms beyond.

Some of the models have become more enthusiast about tomorrow clipper, saying that we may get as much as 10cm.  As well, a system on Saturday is looking like a 15-20 cm..

Flash freeze and Clipper

Today's high temperature of  ~ +5C will occur early this evening, approximately 8:00 PM, .   By 10 PM, the temperature is predicted to have dropped to -2C, -5 by midnight, -10 by morning.  This is accompanied by high winds.   Bare surfaces may dry up before the freeze but any accumulation of puddles will freeze up and snow banks will become rock solid.

Tuesday will see an Alberta clipper coming through, dropping approximately 5cm of snow (map courtesy of Weatherbell)
