A huge outbreak of frigidly cold air with origins over deep reaches of the Northern Hemisphere will slam southward across all of the Eastern U.S. right on schedule, from Thursday through the weekend, with strong hints that it will continue at least through early next week.
The only thing missing for us is snowcover, as that would most certainly help temperatures plunge even more. So how about that snow? Any chances?
Short answer is we could see some light amounts (only a chance) from the very vigorous clipper storms diving southeastward from Canada. Any redevelopment of these off the coast will tend to be far enough offshore, and north, to keep our chances of a significant snowfall out of reach. Even so, I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of a small amount if one of the clippers drops far enough south.
