Good day everyone!

This is a fairly short winter brief, as there is really anything that is very significant as far as powerful storms. Analysis this morning reveals snow will continue to affect portions of the upper Midwest, with snow and wintry weather progressing into the New England area during the next 48-72 hours.

Based on the daily brief from Weatherbell Analytics, the air over the areas mentioned is extremely cold, and snow to liquid ratios, which are normally 10:1 (This is saying that if 10 inches of snow fell and that snow was melted it would produce 1 inch of liquid precipitation in the rain gauge.), could range from 15:1 to 20:1.

Temperatures across the majority of the U.S. will remain cold, with somewhat of a roller coaster effect over the extreme south, with minimum temperatures beginning to modify over the extreme south, mainly the Gulf Coast states, in about 42-48 hours from this morning.  Other than this, models do not indicate any severe weather threat, or coastal storm development during the next 5 days.

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.
