Winter Storm North Carolina Southern Virginia While Northeast is Dry Sunny & Cold
We sit cold and dry here in the Northeast and Northern Mid Atlantic states with the snow drought for the coastal plain that shows no signs of breaking. It is certainly not going to break with this system sliding to our south and east. Winter Storm Warnings are up for Northeast North Carolina and Southeast Virginia with Winter Weather Advisories stretching back to easternmost Tennessee.
Above is the National Weather Service snow forecast map numbers where they raised estimates from yesterday. My forecast from yesterday is below. The are both relatively close together at this point.
Nothing can come up the Eastern Seaboard with westerly winds in the upper atmosphere taking everything pretty much straight east. While all that is going on we will be in some high clouds from that southern system but there should be some sun in the mix too. Temperatures today will top mostly in the 30s. Radars are quiet with the regional radar range extending south into North Carolina so you can see the beginnings of the snow there later today.
There are no issues tonight other than it will be cold and dry with most lows in the teens to lower 20s. Friday should be sunny and cold with highs in the low to mid 30s.
There is no change in the outlook for the weekend. We will see sunshine for Saturday and Sunday with warmer temperatures. Saturday’s highs will be in the 40s and Sunday’s highs will reach up into the 50s! Enjoy what should be a very nice weekend indeed.
Next week bring the next round of weather systems starting with a low and a cold front for Monday night into Tuesday with some showers. After that the pattern gets a little muddled. It might offer a very small window of opportunity for snow lovers later next week but everything would have to line up perfectly for this to happen. We will be discussing this further later today on our Weather in 10 video for Patreon members.
