It's just not the pattern for a big storm along the East coast, but more of a pattern of the clipper parade lasting through the end of the month. I think by Feb. 1, we will see a split flow pattern developing that will lead to a stormy weather pattern for February. I see that the SOI values are very high right now which indicates some warming in the South Pacific. While technically, an El Nino is not going on, that signal may be one that indicates the tropical branch starts to get active. The implications are positive for southern California which needs the rain. It also means the cold weather will be blown out of the eastern half of the country and the extreme cold will relax into February. That does not mean there will not be warm days, just means the extreme cold is done and it's typical cold weather for February. If you like big East coast storms, watch around Feb. 10.
The dreaded polar vortex is on the way for this weekend. Next week a storm wikll bring snow once again.
Snow showers will continue around the Great Lakes, Midwest and Northeast through Thursday. By the weekend, it's going to be very cold!
Upper-level low will brign scattered areas of snow through Wednesday. By the weekend, it's extremely cold.
Snow will hit many areas the next two days but extremely cold weather will follow the snow.
The pattern will become more wintry across the eastern part of the county, and a lot of people will see snow!
A storm will move up the coast clipping the coastal areas with wet snow. Eastern New England will have the msot snow from the storm.
