Monday’s storm has combined with the upper
Average highs are around 50 for most of us now, and we will not be there for the next 7-10 days! The new blocking cold vortex that formed from our Monday System and the
snow storm until a relaxing of the block occurs point. I have busted bad in so many areas this year, but the thoughts in my winter weather outlook were that we would be at or slightly below normal on snow. If you looked at
day after Christmas which knocked them above climatological normals on snow. The Southwestern part of the state was helped greatly by this recent storm. Enough snows have fallen in Northern Virginia and
The next system for us to deal with will be a fast moving clipper this Saturday. Some data suggests there could be some light to moderate snows in the North if this occurs at night, and mainly out west in the higher elevations. I think we will see some light snow in the north, not much, if any sticking, and cold winds Saturday, with showers possibly mixed with snow in most areas. Monday into Tuesday another system affects the region and this looks
warm (and even possibly seasonal) enough for rain, but re enforces the cold so that we go back below normal. There is asomething else being hinted at for next Thursday to Friday that may give some of the area
a good shot at wintry weather. This time of year is so hard to create snow, but definitely possible! After this storm exits, a very cold outbreak will occur and, compared top the normal temperatures for this time of the year, it will be the coldest outbreak of the year. As that cold pattern breaks somewhere down the line another storm with some winter weather may still be possible. So an active end to the winter where storms could bump many areas to normal snowfall.
