Good afternoon everyone!
The Storm Prediction Center is not forecasting any severe weather threat over the next 3-5 days.
Elsewhere, I am looking at another coastal storm to take shape in about 54 – 60 hours from now, off the Mid Atlantic Coast.
Analysis of global models and regional models indicate this system to stay fairly close to the coast, with the system projected to deepen to around 989 mb (29.21 in.)
Based on the tight isobar spacing and precipitation behind the freezing line, the eastern seaboard from the Mid Atlantic region, northward, may want to be prepared for the possibility of blizzard conditions once again. Analysis of isobar spacing and the current run of the Wave Watch 3 model output indicates sustained winds at the coast near 45-50 MPH.
With an onshore flow from N.J., northward, I expect coastal flooding at the time of high tide along with beach erosion. Widespread power outages and downed trees cannot be ruled out with this system, should the intensity and location to the coast verify.
Minimum and Maximum temperatures for the week will stay mainly on the cold side over most of the nation, with the exception of milder temps in the SEUS. Temps should begin to rebound nicely into next week.

I may not be on as much over the next couple of weeks, as I am scurrying to get new Hurricane Tracking software installed. The GT 7 program I had, has had a major glitch and is no longer accessible. I’ll be mainly on the severe weather mode during this time. Yo can however go to our Lightning Weather site, which is under the links section on the right hand side of my page for excellent winter weather updates.
Have a blessed day!
