Mid-Atlantic Region

Both the NAM and GFS have a snowstorm effecting the Mid-Atlantic region with snow.

NAM

 

GFS

 

 

The precipitation type will be all snow as temperatures will be in the mid to upper 20s as pictured by the skew-t.

Also the snow can fall moderately to heavy at times as shown by good vertical velocities which is the amount of lift in the atmosphere.

It is still too early to give out accumulations with this storm as it is still greater than 60 hours away. Just know that there is a storm on the table. 

 

NYC Metro Region

For the NYC Metro region the models are in disagreement with the track and evolution of the storm. The nam pictured below gives the NYC Metro region a good sized storm while the GFS grazes us with light precipitation and keeps most of the snow in the Mid-Atlantic.

If the storm happens like the NAM depicts the precipitation type will be all snow as temperatures will be in the mid to upper 20s as pictured by the skew-t.

Also the snow can fall moderately to heavy at times as shown by good vertical velocities which is the amount of lift in the atmosphere. This only happens if the storm is modeled like the NAM.

**Stay tuned for updates as the track is critical with this event.**

We will be keeping an eye on this though. We only need a slight adjustment north to get into moderate snows for the NYC Metro.

Steven DiMartino has this storm being suppressed south and never liked this storm from the beginning. The 12Z CMC is further south with best snow in S. Jersey.
