Good day all!

Snow, ice, and wintry mix are on tap once again for the Ohio Valley beginning late Sun. evening /early Mon morning, then moving into the NE and New England areas, with precipitation forecast to clear the coast by late Mon. evening.  Extremely cold air will remain in place, but should be confined to the northern half of the country as a result of a zonal flow regime.

A low develops in the mid section of the country by Tuesday, which could bring moderate to heavy rain over the southern Ohio Valley, and into the Tennessee Valley areas.  Precipitation may remain a rain event, as the freezing line is behind the precipitation this time.  This precipitation is forecast to spread east over the NE and Tidewater areas, with heavier rain forecast over the SE portion of the country by Thursday.

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.

    Hi Monty and Storm, I wound up with about 5.5-6″ of snow.About what was forecasted. Nice and sunny now, breezy but not too cold, about 35-40F today. More snow and rain later tomorrow into Wed. Then getting colder again, and possibly more snow on Thursday! –Sorry about that alimony stuff, Monty. That’s a big chunk of change every month.

    Thanks Storm. Yuck!! We just set a February snowfall record with more possible tomorrow. Still nothing compared to NEUS.
