The parade of clippers has started and, between now and Wednesday, I counted about five clippers that have to come through the Midwest into the mid-Atlantic. Each one of the clippers will produce light to moderate snows with amounts highly variable due to snow ratios and topography. An example of that was last night where 10 inches fell in the West Virginia mountains, while in the lower elevations it was a coating to an inch or two. The map you see below only covers through this weekend.
I am getting excited for the Valentine's Day storm. It's the first time we have seen a trough coming into the East that has the chance to lock off and produce a storm along the coast. If only we can get the blocking in place for a big storm. Right now, the NAO is slightly positive and the PNA is neutral which doesn't support any big storms, but only the clipper type of events.
A snowstorm with problems but where it does snow, roads will get horrible.
Snowstorm to bring poor travel on the busiest travel day of the year.
Snow is coming Wednesday, but where and how much? We do know that travel will become a disaster where the snow falls.
It's a wild weekend with severe storms cutting across the South.
It's going to be a wild weekend with severe storms moving across the South. Hard to believe after a cold weather pattern.
We are going from a winter pattern to a late fall severe weather pattern by this weekend.
