In the Mid-Atlantic, one system will produce snow tonight into early Thursday in areas north of the PA/MD border and a mix of snow, ice and rain across Virginia, Maryland and the DC metro region. Accumulations by early tomorrow in the I-95 corridor from this initial system should be as follows: a coating to 2 inches in the DC metro region, 2-4 inches in Philly metro region, and a coating to 2 inches in and around the NYC metro region. A second system will produce some snow on Thursday night and early Friday, but its impact will be confined to areas south of the PA/MD border with small additional snow accumulations possible in the DC metro region.
A storm system over the weekend will likely move up towards the Mid-Atlantic coastline and it is likely to produce more snow, ice and rain in the region. It is too early for the finer details, but snow may be the dominant precipitation type in areas of the Mid-Atlantic region that lie to the north and west of the Route I-95 and the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor could end up with a mixed bag. This system pushes away later Sunday and then we’ll begin the new week with low-level cold air in place in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Looking ahead to next week
Next week could feature another two storms that cross the nation in this very active ten day stretch. One system could impact the Mid-Atlantic region by Monday night or Tuesday and a second system could arrive just a few days later. Early signs point to the potential of high impact from either or both of these systems as there is likely to be plenty of available moisture and low-level cold air in place. In other words, there is the potential for significant snow and/or icing in the Mid-Atlantic region from either or both of these systems next week. Stay tuned and there is some good news…pitchers and catchers report in 7 days and a warm up is possible after we get through next week.
