Watching MLK Weekend for Potential Nor’easter

Quick update this evening to let my fellow snow fans out there know that there is hope and to try to be patient.

The NAO is now forecasted to tank during MLK weekend.  The current GFS and European operational runs are advertising the potential for a classic Nor’easter.  In fact the European Ensembles also have a storm sitting somewhere off the Mid-Atlantic coast during this time frame.   This is over a week out, so don’t celebrate just yet but keep in mind that we could be going from a snow-drought to a snowpocalypse soon! I am highly interested in next weekend (January 17 – 18)!

    Ooooooooo ahhhhhhhhhhhh! Looks interesting but you have to remember what happened last year when we got shafted so many times. But the nao was positive last year which could make it more interesting. I am so interested now. What do you think? Where off the coast will it be sitting?

    If you look at the atmosphere as a jigsaw puzzle, all the right pieces seem to be in place for a DC snowstorm. Doesn’t guarantee it, but certainly makes it plausible.

    Tim, one of my favorite things in Winter is to check your posts… I feel you’re the only one I know who shares my passion for snow, and the only metereologist who hits bullseye on a consistent basis. Keep up the awesome work!
