Snow and wintry weather will continue today mainly from VA., northward over the NE and New England areas.  Rain is on tap for much of the southern tier of states later on this afternoon into evening.  Based on analysis of the current forecast surface maps, I expect all of this precipitation to be clearing the east coast, moving into the Atlantic by early Friday morning.

Once again, the majority of very cold air will remain over the same areas as it has been over the past few weeks for the next 24 – 30 hours, with the extreme south remaining mild.  The following days 3, 4, and 5 minimum temperature maps do indicate a slow modification to milder temperatures, remaining in place in the 5 – 7 day period from 06Z this morning.  Look for more winter precipitation to start again on Saturday for the NE and New England areas.

The following maps are projected snowfall accumulations from the GFS and NAM models.  It is not a forecast as to what definite totals will be, as conditions can and do change.  These maps are to provide you with some basic information as to what the models believe may happen.

Given that we are heading into spring, I’m surprised we haven’t had a threat for severe weather yet…which I am sure is ok by all of us.

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.
