Snow Showers Should Fade Away Front Arrives Friday Watching Sunday

Our winter storm continues to crawl eastward and we though that by now the snow showers that have lingered around would be gone. However there are some still around thanks to the upper low which has been moving even slower than the surface feature. We should see everything translate eastward today as a new surface low strengthens south of Nova Scotia. Clouds should give way to some breaks of sunshine today. It will be windy with highs mostly in the 30s.

Eastward progression is noted on the regional radars as the counterclockwise flow around the low cause bands to push southward into the Middle Atlantic states but the overall area is sliding to the east. An additional coating of snow (or a bit more) is possible while these bands are still lingering.

We should clear out tonight (finally) with lows in the 20s. Thursday look for sunshine and less wind as highs reach the 30s to around 40 degrees in some spots. That should at least start to melt some of the snow cover away.

Friday brings a fast moving cold front. Southwest winds ahead of the front normally would warm us up but this time of year given the weak high to the east means the southwest flow won’t have time to warm low levels though it will overrun the air mass with warmer air. This leads to some showers approaching with the front however I think it might be cold enough that there could be a burst of snow or sleet especially inland when precipitation arrives. This could leave a coating to an inch or so in some places Friday morning as the map indicates. Otherwise the front moves along and passes offshore later in the day. Friday highs will be in the 30s to lower 40s and then it turns colder behind it.

There are no weather issues Saturday which looks to be sunny and cold with highs generally in the 30s. Then attention turns to a strong upper air shortwave moving across the southern states and turning up the coast on Sunday while colder air spreads into the Northeast. I’m showing you the most bullish view here from the ICON model overnight. This is due to the model showing more of a phase of the northern and southern stream verses other models which are flatter.

The Weather Prediction Center has snow chances for Sunday which is still in their long range forecast period so this is certainly on their radar. If this storm system does materialize it will be different than the one we just experienced. There is no blocking or trapped upper low so this system will move quickly through here. It would be a 6 to 10 hour snowfall and that would likely limit the amount of snow that could fall.

Following this next week should be cold much of the time and with blocking back on the scene it is likely we will see additional snow chances along the way over the next couple of weeks.
