Another snowstorm possible...
What a storm we got! I measured about 22 inches at my location and New York City had there 2nd most snow from a single storm, ever! I'll have a storm review out tomorrow night if your interested in hearing about all the impacts of this crazy storm.
Tomorrow morning will be very treacherous as all the snow that melted today, will refreeze and turn into black ice. Schools all around the area are delaying and closing.
Tuesday should be nice with high temperatures rising well into the 30s.
A cold front will pass through Wednesday dropping temperatures throughout the day. Also expect some rain/snow/sleet showers.
Thursday will be cold and dry.
Then Friday we have to watch for our next possible snow storm.
The storm will start to get itself together in the eastern Gulf of Mexico Thursday. Sea surface temperatures are very warm in this area. Models only have the low pressure deepening between 1005 and 1015 millibars. However, with the warm waters it could very well be stronger.
The exact track of the storm has not been figured out yet. If the storm takes the more north track, Friday will be very snowy with 6-12 inches likely in a 12 hour period. In this track the storm would likely bottom out around 965-975 millibars as it nears the benchmark. The coast would likely suffer similar surge and damage as it did with this past storm. However, the lack of a high pressure system to the north will likely prevent anybody from seeing record or near record surge levels.
There is also the chance that the storm could go out to sea leaving us with just some snow showers.
The 12z models tomorrow will have a much better idea on the storm, as they adjust for the new snow pack, and as part of the storm moves onto land. I think that I will have a much better idea of the storm once it is under 84 hours. The first snow total map Tuesday afternoon if need be.
There is an extremely interesting possibility for a big winter storm February 2nd into 3rd. The track that this storm could take is similar to a few storms that brought heavy ice and snow to our area. The track this storm could take also brought a blizzard to the Midwest and New England. Obviously this storm is very far out and will change but I thought I would share the potential.
Clearly this winter is really cranking up! Below is a map of how much snow actually fell during the blizzard. Be sure to follow my twitter @CONWEATHER!
