Ingredients are here for a big East Coast Storm; Details are still Murky

We are heading into a very active pattern as a trough tries to carve out across the northeastern United States next week. There are rumors of a potential snow event here Monday evening into Tuesday of next week. The ensembles are all over the place (very little agreement with placement of the surface features) and therefore it is way too soon to be focusing on each operational model run. The images below shows the GFS Ensemble models for snowfall potential through Tuesday February 9th. As you can see, there is currently very little consensus.

More updates to come as we get closer to any potential event. These storms have the potential to miss the DC Area and clobber NYC to Boston as well — so keep in mind I am not promising a storm here in the DC Area, but the upper level pattern remains conducive for the potential of another big east coast snow storm. Stay tuned.
