Good day all!

Analysis of Global models this morning indicates snowfall that is currently ongoing should begin to lift out during the next 15 hours, with another shot of very cold air poised for the eastern U.S., all the way down to portions of the Florida Panhandle.

Based on model analysis, I do not see any snow for the immediate future for the eastern U.S. nor Ohio and TN Valley regions for at least the next 72 hours.  However, a band of precipitation is forecast to stretch across the NE and New England area beginning late Friday evening / early Saturday, which will be located behind the “freezing line”.

Some very cold air will dip southward, with a projected modification in minimum temperatures warming by Sunday.

About palmharborforecastcenter

I am a Tropical Forecast meteorologist, providing hurricane forecasts during the Atlantic Hurricane Season. I retired from the U.S. Coast Guard in July of 2001. Meteorology became my passion in high school, and I have continued my educational background in meteorology since 1996, when I undertook the study of Tropical Meteorology. While working toward my degree, I had to unexpectedly withdraw from college due to my oldest sons medical reasons. I do however, meet the educational criteria of the AMS to be recognized as a meteorologist. Studies include, but are not limited to the Navy Aerographers Mate course, Naval METOC meteorology course, Meteorology 2010 Sophomore level course while attending St. Petersburg College, Clearwater, FL., Basic Forecasting course for operational meteorologists from Rapid WX, meteorology institute, a four month meteorological internship, and extensive research on numerous meteorological topics such as the MJO, NAO, satellite imagery interpretation, etc. I have been forecasting Tropical Weather (Tropical Storms and Hurricanes) since 1996, with my main client being three different Coast Guard Commands.

    Thanks Storm. HA…we will be near 70 tomorrow and stay above average into next week. Enjoy it while it lasts I guess. Sorry LT…you guys are getting hit hard. Stay warm buddy. I guess Florida had a twister today Storm…hope all is well with everyone down there.

    • Thanks Monty. Yeah, the preliminary on that is, they are not sure yet. Met. last night mentioned damaging winds, but didn’t say anything of a tornado at the time. Could be though, as he did mention rotation associated with some of the cells.

    Thanks, Storm, we had the “Arctic Front” surge thru my area this morning. We had snow showers and squalls that left about an inch. Temp. was 34F at 8:30am, now at 11:16am it’s 27F. And going down. In my area, could go down to 2-7F by Friday 6am. Highs Friday only 18-23F. Looks like periods of light/ mod. snow from late Sat. till at least Monday. I’ll let you know what is actually going on. Thanks Again. LT.
