    Snowstorm on the Way. Very Cold Weather End of the Week

    December 28, 2012; 10:39 AM ET


    The storm coming northeastward will bring a swath of generally 1-3 inches of snow with around 3-4 inches in the area shown on the map. Snow ratios will generally range from 10:1 to 15:1 across the swath of snow. The 10:1 ratios will be in the eastern side of the snow swath and the 15:1 on the northern edge of the snow swath if that makes sense. The reason I bring that up, if the QPF shown on some of the models verifies, it could mean a little extra snow for some folks. In any case, it's a nice snowfall for many snow lovers out there.

    Next week, we have a couple of issues.

    1. A storm coming Monday and Tuesday could bring another swath of light snow over the same areas.

    2. That same storm may produce severe weather across the South late Monday into Tuesday.

    Extreme cold

    Late next week, an arctic airmass will sneak into the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley and Northeast. Temperatures Friday may not get out of the low 20s and teens in many areas with nighttime lows both Friday and Saturday morning below zero in many areas form Indiana, Ohio to Maine. The places that have snow cover have the greatest chance of sub-zero overnight lows during that time.
