The precipitation field associated with the weakening initial storm system and re-developing low will impact the Mid-Atlantic region by early Thursday. There is likely to be enough cold air around for an icy mess in the DC metro region early on Thursday with the precipitation likely beginning in the wee hours of the morning.  A wintry mix is likely to develop across Philly and its suburbs between about 7 and 10 am and then reach NYC by late morning or mid-day.  As the storm intensifies over the Delmarva Peninsula, increasing easterly winds will pump in slightly milder air to the immediate I-95 corridor resulting in plain rain during the afternoon and evening and some of the rain can be heavy.  In interior sections of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast US, significant snowfall is anticipated with several inches on the table from West Virginia/far western Virginia to upstate PA and NY to interior New England.

European/Asian cold…next week’s widespread Arctic blast into the US

A large part of northern Europe from the UK to the Scandinavian countries is currently experiencing Arctic cold and heavy snow is falling in many places. The Arctic cold extends to Russia/Siberia as well with some parts of Siberia suffering through some extremely cold conditions.  Often this time of year, a cold pattern will become established over Europe/Asia before it does so in the US, and signs are pointing to the likelihood for an Arctic outbreak in the US later next week with the cold likely sticking around in much of the central and eastern US through Christmas weekend.  In fact, it is possible that Christmas Day is the coldest one since 2000 for many spots in the eastern half of the nation. The overall weather pattern should remain quite active as well later next week into Christmas weekend and this will certainly increase the chance for many in the northern US to experience a white Christmas, but more on those chances in coming days – a lot to go through before we get there.
