Discussion

Attention now turns to the next storm system and this one is likely to generate accumulating snow and/or ice in the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor. This next storm will take a track farther to the east compared to Monday’s system and this will help to keep a cold air mass in place through much of the upcoming event. This cold air mass will be anchored by strong high pressure to the north and low-level temperatures are likely to remain at or below freezing through much of the storm – virtually assuring a buildup of snow and/or ice. Snow breaks out towards daybreak or in the early morning and it can come down hard for awhile before mixing with or changing to a wintry mix later in the day. Several inches of snow can accumulate before any changeover occurs and then a buildup of ice is possible later tomorrow and tomorrow night as a wintry mix likely continues to fall. This upcoming storm may turn out to be another relatively long event with snow, sleet and/or freezing rain possible well into the day on Friday.
