No Big Northeast Snowstorm Next Week, But...

Rumors of a big snowstorm long about March 7 and 8 appear to be unfounded, as a beautiful weekend in the region will be followed by a return to colder air.

Indeed a weak system will spawn some snow shower activity later Monday into Tuesday. Also we are monitoring the progress of a storm set to hit California Saturday. That system could bring a moderate snowfall or may slide too far to the south at midweek.

At any rate the midweek storm or close call does "not" appear to be a 40-incher.

Long range computer models have been fairly consistent on a "potential" big snowstorm around March 17 and 18.

AccuWeather.com meteorologists will continue to monitor that situation.

As we have stated recently, the cold weather pattern is set to renew for a time during the middle and last part of March and could hook up with a major snowstorm or two before spring really takes hold.

After all, March is probably the stormiest month of the year, all things considered.

Enjoy the nice weather coming up this weekend, as it appears to be only a teaser.
