Some snow Friday. Then a storm threat February 8th-10th.
Tomorrow will be nice with temperatures falling from the 50s to the 40s in the afternoon.
Friday will be colder with wet snow around. Snow should move into eastern portions of the coverage area early Friday and should spread all the way into Sussex, Warren and Orange counties by noon. The snow should move out in the afternoon and evening. When its all said and done, I'm expecting as much as four inches on Long Island, with much less to the west.
The weekend should be nice but warmer than average with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s.
On Monday a low pressure system will develop off the coast of South Carolina and move northeast. The storm will move over very favorable conditions and strengthen rapidly. It'll reach its peak strength while a few hundred miles east of Virginia Beach. At this time the storm will likely be one of the strongest storms in that general location since Hurricane Sandy. Fortunately, the storm will likely miss us going out to sea.
As that storm goes out to sea, an Alberta clipper will swoop in from the northwest. As it approaches us, models are indicating that the clipper could combine with some of the energy from the out to sea storm. Right now it looks like the storm would then turn north north east strengthening as it does so. This would result in a mixed bag of snow, rain, ice and wind for the coverage area Tuesday.
This is just what my current thinking is and it will likely change as we get closer to the storm.
