This winter has featured an unrelenting series of arctic blasts, tempered by 2 or 3 days of warmer weather in between each cold wave. All signs are pointing to this trend continuing through at least mid-March.
It is by sheer luck (good or bad depending on your point of view) that we have not received a significant snowstorm with this kind of general pattern. As pointed out in this blog frequently before, many areas north of Virginia have had their snowiest winter in decades.
While prospects for a decent snow during the remainder of the winter don’t look good for us at all, I still wouldn’t bet against it given the pattern. Best chances regionally, however, would be in the mountains this late in the game.
Meanwhile, keep the gloves and coats handy for many more shots of cold air before spring rolls around.
