Saturday Quick Summary

Good afternoon. Thanks to everyone who checked in for the storm, I got thousands of hits and new followers. Greatly appreciated. 

Snow totals where in my 5-10 inch range for most of the forecast area. I was a little underdone for some of the coastal areas that received some locally high amounts close to a foot. Up in New England, the heaviest snow form this storm occurred. Some areas near Boston received close to 2 feet. So overall the forecast worked out well.

I am going to cut a video tomorrow night to give a detailed pattern update but in a nut shell here is what to expect. Rain tomorrow night and Monday ending in show showers. High temps in the mid 40's. Temps will then CRASH Tuesday into the single digits for many areas and everything will flash freeze. This is due to the polar vortex moving over our area shown below...

This green area is normally over the North Pole, just to give you an idea of how cold it is going to get. Here are the temps Tuesday morning. You can click image to make it bigger. The grey is the below zero. Hasn't been this cold since 1994. 

We might see some light snow end of the week then we will experience the "half time" to winter as temps will moderate into the 40's and possibly the 50's by next weekend. This is normal for this time of year and is called a January thaw. However, I expect winter will return towards the end of the month and will a hard punch. I will go into reasons behind why, and when the potential for the next storm will be in my video tomorrow.
