After taking a look at all of the recent model runs, it appears as if a consensus has come upon us. So I am comfortable with my snowfall map. (Below) Right now it looks like this upcoming storm may start as some sleet in DC, Baltimore and in Philadelphia, but afterwards change over to rain. This storm will result into a classic nor’easter. A clipper will come from Canada and merge with a developing coastal low from the Gulf of Mexico and will merge off the coast of New Jersey. Cold air will wrap into this storm in time for New York City and even extreme northeastern portions of New Jersey to get significant snowfall from this storm. As it heads towards Boston it will be at it’s strongest and will deliver blizzard conditions. Pretty much if you live anywhere north of the PA/NY boarder you will likely receive a good 6-12″ of snow. Winter storm conditions from the clipper will result in Michigan, where in Detroit they are seeing an above average winter season. (see winter has not been terrible for everyone lol)
New York City by the way is tricky. You are on the boarder, but recent models have shown that you all will get a decent amount of snow.
Key Snowfall Predictions:
New York City: 6-12″ Snow to Mix & Rain then quickly back to snow.
Albany: 6-12″ All Snow
Boston: 14-20″ All Snow, Some sleet may mix in. (Blizzard Warning Expected)
Scranton PA: 6-12″ All Snow
Philadelphia: Mainly Rain, May mix with sleet at first, May end as some wet snow. Little to No accumulations expected.
For those of you in Central Pennsylvania that will receive mainly rain or nothing at all, have no fear. The winter pattern seems to have shifted and looks in the favor right now of those in Central Pennsylvania and the interior sections of the Northeast. Right now I think the best chances of snow, lie North of the Mason Dixon line and primarily West of I-95 going all the way up to Boston. In other words areas south of the Mason Dixon Line, expect rain for areas East of I-95 all the way up to Boston. Expect rain for the most part, aside from this storm, there is a storm setting it’s eyes on the 12-14th of this month, But it looks like it will be an active month, so snow chances I think will abound for interior areas. Not much cold air will be available, So snow in the big cites will be hard to come by. Below is what in general I expect for most of February. Any questions or comments please leave below, and I will try to answer as many as I can. Take care guys and for those who are getting snow, enjoy it.
