Late afternoon model runs seem to be zeroing in on a developing storm off the Delaware Coast on Wednesday. This time around the atmosphere is going to be colder. Combine that with strong dynamics and some dynamic cooling and you have the ingredients for snow for coastal as well as inland areas. The blocking high to the north will force a coastal track that will move slowly northeastward. Snow will develop during the day Wednesday and the timing for heavier snow will be later in the day into Wednesday night.

NAM TOTAL PRECIPITATION FORECAST THROUGH 1AM THURSDAY

Liquid precipitation amounts are on the order of an inch to an inch and a half. This is a very generous output by the NAM which does sometimes tend to be a bit aggressive. We would like to see some more confirmation of this over the next 2 days obviously. Notice this time around amounts decrease as you go north and west of the coast. The upper air suggests a more coastal offshore track here which would mean a colder solution all the way around. The maps below are the early National Weather Service estimates and they seem fair at this early stage.

After a long quite spell we seem to be facing the second noreaster in 5 days. The blocking pattern has apparently put us in a bowling alley for weather systems to develop and intensify in our backyard. This does not look to be as strong a storm as Friday’s monster but it could be formidable enough on its own. We will have more to discuss about this on Monday.
