A couple of points to make today.
1. The heat wave from the Midwest into the Northeast and mid-Atlantic is over. Shots of cooler weather the next two weeks will keep temperatures near to slightly below normal. At times, it may even feel like fall. This is a much different pattern from what we have seen this summer so far.
2. The tropics are dead right now, but they will get going the end of the month into September. I expect it will get busy for about a six-week stretch from late August through September. Keep in mind, storms may look innocent but blow into a hurricane once they near the coast.
3. Heavy storms today and Tuesday as shown on the map with more wind damage type storms. Tuesday could be the active day across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, New York and Virginia with storms producing scattered wind damage reports.
The pattern will continue to produce a couple more snowstorms. The storm this weekend may produce a large swath of snow and wintry mix.
Blizzard continues to rage across New England. More snow is coming with two more storms.
The blizzard will hit tonight and last into Tuesday. This will be an extreme storm for New England.
Major snowstorm starts with workweek as clipper explodes off the coast. It may become a blizzard for New England and NYC.
Two shots of snow are coming as a storm comes north followed by clipper snows Sunday into Monday.
Two snowstorms will affect the East over the next 5 days.
