The NAO will remain negative through next week, so that means we need to watch the East Coast for another storm. The GFS is now showing that storm while the Euro goes out to sea with the storm. The Euro should come around to the storm idea.
Now understand, I am not saying a big storm is coming. What develops should be much weaker than Sandy and produce only gusty winds and rain. What it will do is cause rain over the hard hit areas of the mid-Atlantic delaying clean-up efforts. There is an outside chance the storm will cause higher tides along the coast again which would not be good for the beaches already destroyed by Sandy.
Once we get past that storm, the pattern changes and the storms go back to the West, and the Northeast gets a chance to dry out.
A widespread snow and ice event today into Monday. More on the way later this week.
Heavy snow and even thundersnow coming Northeast tonight. More ice and snow Sunday.
Damaging ice storm on the way for the lower Mississippi Valley. Another storm will bring more snow and ice problems this weekend.
