Good day everyone! Still working on the post hurricane season analytic review, but wanted to take time to update on this weekend’s system.
Colder air and wintry precipitation will move into the Great Lakes region and Ohio valley by late Friday / early Saturday, and continue eastward. Low pressure will move up from the Louisiana area, moving NE and eventually move offshore of the Mid Atlantic / New England region by Sunday, where it begins to deepen. Based on the position of this low, and being a smaller, weaker low, it doesn’t appear at this time that any appreciable coastal flooding will be noted. Winds and seas off the New England area COULD produce some beach erosion, but the system doesn’t appear the magnitude of what we have seen recently.
Based on analysis of computer model snowfall forecast accumulations, snow may be plentiful in the Great Lakes / Ohio valley region, with totals forecast of 4″ – 6″ by Sunday, and 12″-14″ over N.Y. States and the New England area.
I will be checking in on this over the weekend, and will update if need be.
Have a blessed day!
