Good evening all!
This is going to pretty much be a “quickcast”, given this will be a fast moving system, and will be off the VA coast by tomorrow.
A current surface low over MS/AL will quickly move tot he NE, and exit off of the VA coast. Models have backed off the strength on this low, at least over the land areas, so at the moment, I am not expecting blizzard conditions to occur, unless a substantial shift to the west occurs, or the low deepens unexpectedly. Boaters and offshore shipping however, should watch for winds on the east side of this system, to reach 35 – 40 knots. Snow and winter precipitation will continue over the areas of the NE and New England which have been pounded over the past few days, as well as heavier amounts over the Piedmont region of VA/NC and westward for a short distance into portions of WV/TN, and KY. A mix is also forecast for as far south as portions of GA.
I expect the snow and wintry precipitation to clear the coast by late Tuesday evening.
Behind this comes another blast of Arctic air, with even colder temperatures than we have just seen. Freezing temperatures are forecast to extend south, well into the Florida Peninsula, with mid to upper 30’s very close to the coast.
Please dress appropriately, and follow NWS Statements regarding this event, by using the linked graphic for the NWS Hazards Display. Boaters are urged to check in on the Offshore Waters Forecast. Also, PLEASE REMEMBER to take care of pets…they get cold just as we do.
My next forecast will most likely not be until sometime on Thursday.
Please use the following linked graphics for near real time information updates. Remember to refresh this main page first.
I have also gone through my “StormW’s Toolbox” and deleted non working links, and updated outdated links. If you click on the heading, you’ll find a plethora of various weather websites.
Have a blessed day!
