Weekend Weather Discussion: Flakes Start Flying Sun, Bigger Storms Loom

Good morning. I am in Atlanta at a wedding this weekend, so short post from my cell phone.

Two periods we are following:

Snow showers and squalls moving into NE tomorrow with another shot at snow from a clipper Monday night.

The chance a big interior winter storm end of next week.

Starting w sunday, models consistent w snow breaking out. New England areas can see a few inches with maybe a coating in NNJ. This comes in w the bitter air associated w arrival of the arctic front. Here is an idea of possible snow accumulation Sunday ..

As I mentioned this week temps plummet below freezing for many areas w highs in low 40s around NJ.

We then have our clipper system coming in w more snow for New England Monday..

I really like the I90 corridor for a good 2 to 4 maybe 5 inches here. Not expecting much for tri state area.  In fact, some rain will prob fall w some snow possible at the end.

Things then calm down before the next potential storm which could be quite big for Friday into Sat. The target zone for winter impacts is interior New England. The European model and it ensembles are most agreesive w this and have been consistent over last few days..

You can see above it trys to blow up a big storm and stall it off the coast Friday. We will have to keep an eye on this as it would be quite significant for areas of VT and NY state. The upper air charts look impressive..

Nice ridge out west, deep negative trough in the east, blocking in the Atlantic. Fun stuff to see for early April!

So a lot of weather on tap as you guys can see. Bundle up for the big chill coming tomorrow and enjoy any snowflakes that may fall.

I am not back till Sunday night but will comment if necessary.
