The pattern ahead will be governed by a huge upper-level low pressure system becoming lodged over the Northeast, acting like a spinning wheel as it ushers modified arctic air southward across the Midwest and mid-Atlantic. It will be turning colder, for sure, but nothing extreme due to increasing seasonal factors as we move out of deep winter towards spring.
At the same time, a vigorous southern jet stream will rip multiple waves of low pressure eastward across the Deep South over the next week to ten days. Opportunities for snow will be largely dependent on the tracks.
