As you can see by the map below, the snow will develop in the Midwest and head into the Northeast where the most snow will fall. It will take until that time before the storm strengthens and the thunderstorms move into the cold air. It may look like a blizzard out there across parts of the Northeast due to the strong winds and heavy snow.
From the center of the storm on south into North Carolina, a band of low-topped thunderstorms will develop Wednesday afternoon. The storms may produce locally damaging wind gusts over 50 mph. Flooding may also be a problem due to the heavy rain, warmth and snowmelt, especially from Pennsylvania and Ohio on south.
It looks like the El Nino is coming on. The ECWMF monthlies show the El Nino in full swing by May, which has implications on the weather pattern for the summer. Most people think the chilly weather will last through the summer, but I am thinking that it will be a warm summer over much of the country. Winter next year should be a wild one with the El Nino occurring.
