As Christmas day approaches, millions of americans are hoping for the groung to be covered in a fresh layer of snow. For those of us living in the interior northeast U.S. and possibly coastal regions as well. This storm system is still fairly uncirten however, there is some fairly organized model consesus about the storm materializing.
I woke up this morning to a soft snow. This is due to some long-range lake effect moisture strenghened by a trof south of Boston. Accumulations sould reach about an inch in most spots. The afternoon will feature a clearing sky with cold temps. Highs will only reach 30 in most spots. Lower in the Mountains.
Well now we are coming into a more active pattern. This is due to the jet stream ( the storm “highway”) is sliding down over the area. This will mean that we have 2 chancs at putting down some snow before christmas day.
This morning some of us will get some snow with a detached shortwave. (A little disturbance in the atmosphere) This will wrap up as the morning heads on. Tomorrow will see some rain. In fact a lot of rain. This will arrive in the morning around 7:00 am. It will wrap up around 7:00 pm.
