Dry air with moderate chill to reach the Northeast as big storm departs

Looking back, this was the map in the hours before the major storm hit the middle and North Atlantic sites yesterday. I mentioned in the story that people would be surprised at how quickly road conditions would deteriorate as the storm moved in. As it turned out, thousands of people were stuck for hours and there were injuries and fatalities.


This was a pressure map from early this morning. This storm is departing and dry air is about to come in from the west. It appears that no new big storm will be sighted for a while, perhaps well into next week.


Under the cold upper-air low pressure area, some heavy snow showers developed and there were even reports of lightning and thunder.


This forecast video shows what should be happening this weekend and the first half of next week.
