Snow fans may get their opportunity within the next couple of weeks. The jet stream patterns seem to be aligning for at least one, and perhaps two mid-south systems that will both be fairly close calls for the middle Atlantic with respect to precip types. I continue to be skeptical of the computer guidance, however, and we still need to sit tight before jumping on this.
I do think that the general pattern evolution is more favorable than most I’ve seen in quite awhile. Stay tuned to this blog for updates. I will try to post here more frequently if things look promising.

UPDATE posted 1/5: Next week (12-16) will perhaps bring our last possibility of snow, and then the signals are pointing to a January thaw the following week. (I know, big deal, we’ve already had several winter thaws over the past few weeks). Even next week’s potential isn’t anything to get excited about, and after that… well, let’s just say it doesn’t look good for the rest of the month thereafter. Jim
