    Weekend Snow

    Thursday 9 A.M.

    The powerful storm that caused tornadoes across the Gulf states, heavy snow from Texas and Arkansas to northern Maine and wind-driven, heavy rain along the East Coast from Maryland to southern Maine was centered just south of Cape Cod at 9 a.m. this morning.

    A new storm will from in the Gulf states tomorrow and track toward New England's offshore waters by Sunday morning. By taking that kind of track, the chance of accumulating snow is increased for the I-95 corridor. Last night's various computer projections showed scenarios ranging all the way from no snow to heavy snow. This video is illustrated using one GFS version from its 1 a.m. EST run this (Thursday) morning.

    Outside our house (in central Pennsylvania), the falling snow was highlighted by the camera's flash around dusk last evening. It looked like an outdoor version of a snow globe.
