Looking ahead to the coming week or so there are 3 weather systems that we are watching the first is a clipper system that is going to be dropping southeastward from the Great Lakes and redeveloping off the New Jersey coast. The second is Tuesday with a second clipper that is going to be moving by just to our north. The third comes next Sunday into Monday with low pressure coming out of the Gulf States and straddle along or just off the east coast. With respect to the first two clippers is that they are running to close together which basically leaves little room for either one. These will be minor events and snow areas will be limited.
The European model is going back to what models were suggesting a few days ago as a low drops from the Great Lakes and redevelops just southeast of Cape May. The European model gets this thing going but it keeps all the important precipitation just offshore. I think the RGEM model has the best representation of this in terms of snow amounts and the map below shows snow totals through Monday 7am so there maybe a little more to add to this before it is done. A coating to a couple of inches seems likely from Southern New Jersey, Southeastern Pennsylvania down to Maryland and Delaware and Northern Virginia...READ MORE AT http://www.meteorologistjoecioffi.com/index.php/2017/01/28/snow-threats-going-forward-2/
