On Monday, strong cold high pressure will expand from the Northern Plains into the southeastern part of Canada and this will ensure that low-level cold air remains in place across the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast US. Moisture associated with this storm system will begin to spread into the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast US later on Monday and the result could be significant snow in some interior places and significant ice in others. The exact details as to how much snow and/or ice will fall in the Mid-Atlantic region will have to be ironed out over the next few days when the storm track is better determined. The storm system is likely to head towards the Appalachians and ultimately wind up off the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast US coastline. A track farther to the north and west would result in a warmer solution for the Mid-Atlantic (better chances for some plain rain) and a track farther to the south and east would likely result in a better chance for more snow and ice. Another strong storm is likely to follow rather closely behind later next week and this too can produce some icing in the Mid-Atlantic region and snow and rain may be involved as well.
Buckle up…the next week will be quite active.
