Tuesday Night Pattern Update: Moving on from the Great Bust of 2015, Action Could be Looming Ahead

Video below discusses pattern evolution over the next 10 days and the prospects for future storms. Winter is just getting started and I think we got at least a good 3 week period ahead of us heading into February.

Enjoy..

  1. Hey man, love the posts. Have been following the blog for months now. You see anything in the future for central New york? All these storms are too far east, I've literally been on the fringe all winter.

  2. Willy, can you explain to a non weather expert if our region in the Mid-Atlantic is more or less difficult to predict weather for as compared to other regions for reasons such as geography, climate proximity to the ocean. Also, is NJ just out of the big snow fall zone? It seems like CT and MA get big snow totals far more often. Thanks.

    1. In order to get heavy snows in the mid atlantic two things are key. The storm track and the amount of cold air available. With marginal cold air you need a perfect storm track that passes just over the 70/40 benchmark (coordinates) as there is a delicate balance between warm and cold air due to the ocean. If you have a large high pressure system to the North and you have more cold air than normal the chances increase as the storm track will tend to take a more favorable route. In many of those cases, New England will stay dry when mid-atlantic gets clobbered.
