    The storm that brought everything from thunderstorms to fog to rain to heavy snow is now sending heavy snow through central and northern New England. Colder air is spreading from the Great Lakes south and east. The GFS and Euro models are advertising another coastal storm for early next week, and the Euro has another at the end of the week. Here is today's video:

    The following video shows how the weather should be in Chicago and surrounding areas.

    Yesterday, when there was flow from the east, I showed the cold air damming that is common with such flows. Pressures stay high east the Appalachians and fall more to the west. The map below shows the same effect, this time with a west to northwest flow. In this case, some cold air gets dammed up on the west side of the mountains. The effect here is not as pronounced as the setup we saw yesterday.


    We had a few inches of snow in our section of central Pennsylvania. When I told Sam The Dog we had gotten another snowfall, he couldn't have cared less. I can't blame him. He has seen plenty of storms like this all winter.


    Still we keep tables of snow accumulation.
