    Snowfall Forecast Map for Monday Evening-Tuesday Night

    2/17/2014, 9:38:35 AM

    I'm getting more impressed with this potent upper-level storm system that will quickly track into Ontario by Tuesday evening and then into the Northeast U.S. and Maritimes Tuesday and Tuesday night.

    The Canadian model has done a pretty good job of catching the strength of this system from a few days out.

    The map below that I drew at home shows the range of snowfall that I expect with the arrival times of snow. This will be a quick-moving storm, almost like one big warm front as the air will turn mild behind this system.

    The storm will last an average of six hours in most places, perhaps a little more, but with the bulk of the snow coming in a three- to four-hour period when the snowfall rates could reach 2-5 cm (1-2 inches) per hour with strong upward motion in the atmosphere.
