More Snow This Weekend?

Have you finished cleaning up your driveway from the blizzard yet? Good, because we’ve got a 1-2 punch coming this weekend with more snow, though the 2nd storm, while stronger, may end up as rain for a portion of the area.

Don’t let today’s sunshine fool you, it’s going to snow again tonight. A Saskatchewan Screamer (also known as an Alberta Clipper) will race this way, spreading clouds back in late today. There will be little wind associated with this storm, so we’ve got that going for us. Light snow will develop around midnight and continue through the morning, tapering off an ending around midday. Most of us will see between 1 and 3 inches from this storm, with a few 4 inch totals possible. That’s not a big deal, right? Especially after what we got yesterday.

After that, we turn our attention to Sunday, because that might be a bigger deal. That storm, like so many of the other ones we’ve had this winter, will likely not be all snow for everyone. However, where it does stay all snow, we could be looking at several inches of heavy, wet snow – the kind that nobody likes to shovel.

Low pressure will head into the Ohio Valley then towards the eastern Great Lakes this weekend. It will then redevelop off the Mid-Atlantic coastline and head east-northeastward, passing near or over Cape Cod, because really starting to intensify in the Gulf of Maine. How close it comes to the Cape and how quickly it starts to intensify are the biggest things that will impact our forecast. We’ll try to iron out those details in the next 24 hours, and have another post tomorrow, after the first system winds down.
