    Snow and Cold, Pattern Looks Exciting Prior to Christmas

    Commentary

    The map below shows the potential snow area for the first event coming up this weekend. I think areas north of I-90 in Massachusetts and New York could get over 4 inches of snow Sunday as the storm cuts under that area. Keep in mind, one of the things I talked about this year was the storms will draw in the cold air as they come along and this is a case where the cold air will be drawn in as the storm comes in. In addition, I did put an area of ice under the snow area because it is possible we have a period of freezing rain prior to the snow.

    The pattern overall looks very active as we go through next week and into the holidays. Storms will sliding across the South to the mid-Atlantic coast, and I do think the one next week has the potential to develop into a big storm with the Appalachians potentially having a big snow event. Another storm around Dec. 23 will be the one the leads the cold attack into the eastern part of the country that will last through the holidays. Ski resorts may be loving life in the Appalachians and Northeast as the air mass will be cold enough to make snow on top of whatever natural snow falls prior to the holidays.
