Clipper and Friday Snow Event

February 5, 2013; 10:42 AM ET


1. The clipper that came across the Ohio Valley yesterday really fell apart coming over the mountains. I was banking on the warm advection zone to remain intact into Maryland, but that area even fell apart too. So in the end, not much snow fell east of the Appalachians.

2. The clipper coming across the northern Great Lakes will continue across the Northeast tonight producing a coating to an inch or two of snow. Nothing that fantastic.

3. The map for the Friday storm is below. It's based on the ECMWF snow area for now. I doubt the storm will wind up like the ECMWF says Friday night across New England, but in any case, it looks like a 2- to 6-inch snow event coming across the Great Lakes and New England.

4. Still watching the Valentines Day storm. The ECMWF has it, but the GFS has done the usual of losing it.
