Long range global models continue to hint at a possible winter type event to impact the region next week.
The GFS and Euro seem to now want to develop a storm close to the coastline. These models are starting to latch on to the fact that there is a lack of Greenland blocking(negative NAO) which is allowing for the development of a weak southeast ridge. With the storm currently modeled to be close to the coast snow will be linited to the interior with coastal areas being a cold rain. Shown below is the critical thickness which is a good indicator for snow. You can see that only the inland areas are below the critical thickness threshold (below 5400 meters is snow).
Precipitation amounts for this storm are close to an inch for the entire region.
With the inland areas staying below freezing early indications show that 6-10 inches could accumulate.
