The parade of clippers has started and, between now and Wednesday, I counted about five clippers that have to come through the Midwest into the mid-Atlantic. Each one of the clippers will produce light to moderate snows with amounts highly variable due to snow ratios and topography. An example of that was last night where 10 inches fell in the West Virginia mountains, while in the lower elevations it was a coating to an inch or two. The map you see below only covers through this weekend.
I am getting excited for the Valentine's Day storm. It's the first time we have seen a trough coming into the East that has the chance to lock off and produce a storm along the coast. If only we can get the blocking in place for a big storm. Right now, the NAO is slightly positive and the PNA is neutral which doesn't support any big storms, but only the clipper type of events.

Storm is coming up the coast but will only skirt New England. Heat follows into the East.
Florida gets drenched and the same storm skirts New England
While a system may develop, welcome rains will hit Florida this weekend.
System may develop in the Gulf of Mexico as the hurricane season starts today.
