The image above (High Resolution Rapid Refresh – HRRR, courtesy Tropicaltidbits) shows some scattered snow showers moving across parts of the DC Region tonight. Any snow shower will be capable of causing slick travel conditions for the morning rush hour.
Next up Bitter Cold: The next three images (courtesy weatherbell) show the current European forecast for:
1) Lows on Sunday (Valentine’s Day)
2) Wind Chills on Sunday morning (Dangerously Cold!!!)
3) High temperatures on Sunday (Teens for most of us)
As the arctic front passes through on Saturday I wouldn’t be surprised to see some snow showers or flurries moving across the area.
Another Blockbuster Storm Monday Night through Tuesday?
The 500mb (upper level pattern) favors another potential major east coast snow storm: Image below (Euro) shows inverted trough swinging through the Mid-Atlantic with a massive area of blocking high pressure over eastern Canada. Whatever storm that forms may have nowhere to go any time soon… could wobble up the coast …. stay tuned!
