    Snow Streaks Northeast. Thoughts on Weekend Storm

    February 12, 2013; 12:23 PM ET


    The current snowstorm is staying on track for snow to come northeast and hit D.C., Baltimore and Philly. This might be a case where areas around Baltimore get 4-5 inches of snow and D.C. gets a coating to 2 inches of snow. It's that type of storm. The heaviest snow will come out of Texas across Oklahoma and dwindle some across the Ohio Valley before picking up steam again from Kentucky into Maryland. The snow should hit fast and get out by Thursday; in fact, it will warm up behind the snow melting it all away.

    The weekend storm is not on the operational models anymore, but the GFS ensemble still has the storm along the coast. With the NAO going just slightly negative, the door is still open for development along the coast. It will be interesting to see if the ECMWF model has the storm this afternoon.

    • Very warm weather and hailstorms

      Record warmth to hit the East the next couple of days. Storms with big hail will hit the western Great Lakes.
