Parade of Nor’easters likely through mid-March

Unsettled conditions will continue across the Mid-Atlantic and New England through Mid-March.

Upwards of three feet of snow fell across northeastern Pennsylvania and parts of Upstate New York with this last powerful Nor’easter.  The next coastal storm will form off of the Virginia Capes on Wednesday, likely targeting locations further south with snow including Philadelphia, New Jersey, and the New York City Metropolitan RegionAny deepening of this system a bit further south would shift the threat of snow further south and west into the Baltimore and Washington Regions.  This will need to be monitored very closely Monday night into Tuesday as the models will begin zeroing in on a more accurate solution.

“I’m Dreaming of a High-Impact Snow Storm in Washington”:

I am watching the pattern very closely March 11th – 14th as a nice “horse shoe block” sets up from the western United States through Canada and southward through the north-central Atlantic Ocean, with an upper-level trough deepening across the Mid-Atlantic states (see European 500mb image below)

Finally the latest operational run of the GFS during this time period (we can dream):
