    Snowstorm Sunday to Monday... Another Later Next Week

    Commentary

    The current storm should slowly end across the Northeast today. Light snow will continue across the eastern Great Lakes and Ohio Valley while the heaviest snow will fall across Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire. The ice was very bad across southeastern Pennsylvania and northern Maryland. A lot of damage to trees and power lines not to mention all the accidents.

    I know the operational models have backed off the storm Sunday, but I don't buy it. I am seeing the NAO going to neutral and the PNA coming up to neutral which leads me to believe that as the trough digs in, there will be some phasing of the branches and a storm should develop along the coast. Patterns like this can bring surprises that the models do not see until within a day or so of the event. Look back on the Monday snow event. The models last week only shows a weak low running across the South with very little snow, but in the end, it turned out to be a major snowstorm for the parts of the Ohio Valley into the Northeast. So my point is don't let the model runs be the answer today. Watch and see what happens.
