Winter Has More Snow Tricks Yet to Go!

March 18, 2013; 9:53 AM ET


1. The storm will produce heavy snow from Pennsylvania into the Northeast. In many cases the snow rates will be 1-2 inches per hour and thunder could be mixed with it. The secondary storm will produce heavy snow from upstate New York into Maine.

2. Severe weather is under way this morning and will continue through the afternoon. The main impacts will be hail and damaging wind gusts, but there is enough shear for a few tornadoes to develop as well. I like to see higher dew points for tornadoes.

3. Longer range, the GFS has another major storm this weekend into early next week that dumps more heavy snow. The ECMWF goes south with the storm, but I think the ECMWF will come north with that storm on the late day run. I would not be surprised to see snow finally in Washington, D.C., and Baltimore with the next storm only because there will be plenty of cold air around this time.
