Thoughts on January 11-12 Snowstorm...
A 1008mb low pressure is developing off the coast of Texas spreading of plethora of moisture northward along the Gulf Coast states. The low is courtesy of a deep trough sinking south towards the middle of the nation with an accompained strong 500mb low. With the trough axis being situated relatively far west, a low pressure will develop along a weak jet streak towards Missouri and slowly move northward. This low pressure will weaken and shear apart the Gulf of Mexico low pressure. Both lows will begin to lift northeastward with moisturing favoring the primary low and coastal low near Georgia. In between a dry slot will affect parts of the central Appalachians with moisture less than .15in. As the double barrel low complex continues to progress, the primary low over the Ohio valley will begin to weak and shear apart courtesy of significant blocking across northern Canada with a near record low Arctic Oscillation and negative NAO. This will begin an energy transfer restrengthening the coastal low. The timing of this transfer of energy remains highly uncertain at this point and will be very important to the evolution of this system as it traverses up the coastline with a heavy snowstorm across New England.

By Tuesday morning widespread light snow will begin across the Middle Atlantic reaching the Mason-Dixon line. Snow will be relatively light with rates only about .25in per hour as model QPF suggests less than .25in south of the Mason-Dixon line as this region will essentially be in a dry slot. As the coastal low continues to develop, the precipitation shield will begin to intensify from the Mason-Dixon line on northward with moderate snow by early afternoon as far north as the Mason-Dixon line in a widespread manner with rates around .5in per hour. Given the retreating high over Canada, the system will be a relatively quick mover. Current high resolution model guidance shows excellent dendritic growth over much of Pennsylvania west the New Jersey/Pennsylvania border coinciding with H85 thermals below -6C. This will allow favorable snow ratios of 15:1 or slightly higher over central and western Pennsylvania. Current QPF for the state of Pennsylvania through Tuesday night will be around .25-.4in from the overrunning, warm air advection precipitation.

By Tuesday night the low will begin to rapidly intensify off the coast throw a strong CCB across parts of eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and southern New York. Favorable dendritic growth accompanied by enhanced frontogenesis will allow snow rates to increase to 1in/hr especially northeast of Trenton, New Jersey. The low will rapidly intensify to +-992mb by Wednesday morning with heavy snow across much of New England with several enhanced mesoscale bands. A tight pressure gradient will also allow surface winds to increase to 35mph+ gusts along the coast courtesy of a 50knot+ low level jet mixing occasionally down to the surface in heavy precipitation. The low will continue to move northeast with storm total QPF in excess of 1in from just northeast of New York City up through much of New England. Orographic lift across the Berkshires up through the Presidentials will enhance snowfall with storm totals upwards of 14in across the favored upslope regions. Given the relatively fast movement of the storm, snow totals should remain below 18in for all areas.

Many questions remain on the exact track and intensity of the low along with the question of timing on the transfer of energy. But the above summary gives a general basis to the evolution of the storm system. Expect more updates coming tomorrow.

This is my current rain/snow line...
Salisbury, Maryland - Georgetown, Delaware - Atlantic City, New Jersey - Islip, Long Island - Nantucket, Massachusetts

*Note west of this line will stay all snow for the entire duration of the storm. Along the line the snow will vary to sleet and perhaps rain for a point. But given the rapid cyclogensis the coastal low will undergo, most all areas even along the rainn/snow line will receive large snowfall accumulations especially as one moves north of Atlantic City.

Storm Reports...
STAY TUNED!

Storm Impacts...
1. Widespread snow accumulations in excess of 1in from Georgia to Maine.
2. Gusty winds as low pressure bombs out off of Long Island with gusts exceeding 35mph within 50mi of the Atlantic coast.
3. Heavy snow accumulations of 12in+ in parts of New England.
4. Embedded snow bands from New York City on northeastward with 2-3in/hr rates.
5. Very cold temperatures west of I-95 barely rising out of the low to mid 20s during the bulk of the snow accumulation.

Snow Map...

The more difficult locations for the forecast include central Pennsylvania and northern parts of New England across northern Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. These areas have the highest bust potential in this storm.

"Final Forecast Above"

Model Analysis
A very dynamic storm setup is creating model chaos with polarizing views dependent on the models. The high resolution models including the NAM, NMM, and ARW are indicating this storm becoming a bit more amplified allowing for a further west track. This allows the low to intensify quicker with heavier precipitation. Several mesoscale boundaries are being indicated especially towards southern New England particularily just northwest of New York City with an increased area of upward vertical velocities are present based on the NAM 700mb. The mesoscale boundaries will feature the heaviest snow rates accompanied by the best dendritic growth with hourly rates up to 2in per hour. Current GFS/NAM combination indicates a deep area of frontogenic forcing with an embedded CCB band across central Connecticut and central Massachusetts. Further south, the less dynamics will be available especially south of New York City with a weaker portion of the deformation band. The overrunning precipitation associated with the primary low over Ohio will spread light to moderate snows developing from Washington DC northward stretching from Columbus, OH to Reading, PA. Shortly, HIRES NMM simulated radar indicates a collapsing precipitation shield as energy is transferred off the coast. The simulated radar shows a large strengthening deformation band from about Harrisburg on eastward quickly moving north and east. The GFS and NAM differ on the strength of this axis as for QPF placement. Again the mesoscale, high resolution models show significantly more precipitation than the operational models of the GFS, ECMWF, and GGEM. Now the mesoscale models have a precipitation wet bias, but still the differences are quite significant in QPF in when taking in account the wet bias. The H5 charts are quite similar on all the guidance, but the surface plots differ. Given the general theme of declining QPF in antecedent runs leading up to the event, I am actually using GFS/ECMWF QPF has my primary blend. While yes the mesoscale models are quite wetter along with the SREF blend, the recent poor model QPF performance leads me to blend a bit conservative at this point. Considerable questions remain to where the dry slot occurs in Pennsylvania and how far north the heavy precipitation gets across northern New England. These nuisances will likely only be discovered upon actual evaluation of the radar. For further reference, after tracking the RUC QPF during the December 26 storm, I found it to be highly inaccurate. Overall QPF performance has been very poor recently, so I am sticking with the low QPF blend.

After the storm...
As the low pressure zips northeast out of the region, an anticyclonic flow will resume with a bit of lake effect snow. The air mass left in its wake will be very dry likely preventing a widespread lake effect snow outbreak. The flow also favors a northerly trajectory, keeping a hold on the lake effect machine. A few areas downwind of the lakes in the Syracuse-Finger Lake belt may receive a quick 3-6in in the Wednesday to Thursday time frame. Further south across Maryland and Pennsylvania the snow belts will likely get a minimal 1-5in including the Laurel Highlands. A weak disturbance will move across the area Friday with some light snow showers and flurries across the Northeast especially towards New York state. Little to no snow accumulation is likely. A very strong high pressure, 1038mb, will slowly move east out of the middle of the nation bringing clearing skies across the entire region towards Saturday. This high pressure will center itself across the Middle Atlantic likely bringing some radiational cooling Saturday night for one of the coldest nights of the winter. With a widespread snow cover over the entire east coast coupled with a below normal trough and low dewpoints, lows below zero are likely in the colder spots near Bradford, Pennsylvania and up across northern New York state along with parts of Maine. High temperatures much of the week will be around (-3)-(-7)F below normal for the entire Northeast, but especially for those with a solid snow pack. By Sunday, things begin to get interesting as a -3SD trough moves south over the Northern Plains with H85 thermals near -25C accompanied by a 1038mb high pressure. Lows over the Midwest may drop to near -20F or so in some areas across the north country. This arctic front will center itself across the Mississippi Valley along the steep temperature contrast. A low pressure will develop along the front, but it remains uncertain with regards to the track. In any case it is likely some light snow will exist along the arctic front as it cross through the Northeast with several heavy squalls given what appears a decent WINDEX event. The low pressure over the mouth of the Mississippi will just play another role. The ECMWF delays this arctic air mass a bit later in the week, so the long range definitely remains uncertain post Saturday, January 15. Following that I am expecting a slight rebound in temperatures to close the month of January with slightly above normal temperatures as the pattern reloads. The key word there is reloads. Current wavelengths support another wintry blast for an above normal snowfall February. At this point if this forecast holds, most all winter predictions will completely bust. As we say last year, an anomalous -AO will dominate despite whatever the ENSO conditions.

It looks like there actually might be a storm arriving on the weekend, jrzyshore, so it's possible you could get your wish. As of now it's looking like it'll arrive Sat night and go on through Sun, winding down by nightfall. Of course this all could (and probably will) change, but at least there's a sliver of hope.

The reason I kept the 2-3in so far NE is that to me it looks like most models are coming in line with the NAM and giving Central PA on little QPF up to .1in. Just looks too dry to me.

*New blog later today.

12z ECMWF continues theme with a second major coastal storm for the Friday time period of next week. Given the weaker -NAO, I would expect heavier snows to be focused a bit more inland than previous storms. Other guidance though does not really show this late week threat, so not sure yet on this. I have a good feeling for us folks west of I-95 from now through the at least the first two weeks of February.

On the 12z GFS run, it looks like the storm is not too strong and closer to the coast than what it said yesterday, maybe by being close to the coast it will be pulling in easterly winds, lacking that northeast componant to the wind flow.

Moderate to heavy snow shower in progress for about the last hour with fat flakes. Looks like a coating to add to the 3 inches already on the ground. Doesn't look to last much longer on radar.

This would have been great last night during the game. Interested in what the conditions will be for the AFC championship. Going out on a limb, thinking it's going to be here. We may have another Cinderella year for the Steelers.

TRP, agreed. Flacco choked. It was the sheer adrenaline rush that pushed the Steelers ahead. The home advantage was huge. Reffing is just one more part of the game. A win is a win. But you're right. Steelers cannot play the same game they played this week and expect to win against the mighty Pats but there's always a chance.

I cannot believe it is actually raining here. It was 9 degrees this morning, and now it is raining and almost 40 degrees.

I feel your pain.

It was very exciting pittsburghnurse. kept you on edge most of the game.

here are a few ref calls that were very very suspect

the offensive pass interference that was called on the defense that kept the Steelers drive alive to score the first drive
The no call on Ike Taylor headbutting TJ
The no call on Keisel late hitting Ed Reed and kept the Steelers at the goal line. He got called for it on the last TD
The phantom holding call that negated the Baltimore punt return TD
The phantom holding call on the Dlineman that gave Pittsburgh a first down and enabled them to take additional time off the clock under 2 minutes

TRP, agreed. Flacco choked. It was the sheer adrenaline rush that pushed the Steelers ahead. The home advantage was huge. Reffing is just one more part of the game. A win is a win. But you're right. Steelers cannot play the same game they played this week and expect to win against the mighty Pats but there's always a chance.

It was an exciting game to watch.

Thanks for being careful with your forecast, Blizz! I'm looking forward to seeing it. With this storm, anything is a plus from mostly rain.

I see it's the RAVENS against the world already. The refs are in the squealers pocket and the game has just started. The RAVENS will stiil win, no thanks to good officiating

What what what?

I know I would take a win, but I couldn't feel very good about it know how bad the referring was in the favor of my team. I would have in the back of my mind that getting the calls today will come back to haunt. But maybe some people enjoy it that way

I should have known the NFL and refs would not let the RAVENS win the game.
Flacco played like a deer in headlights the second half.

Squealers played better? Neither team played good. Too many turnovers by both teams. Very poorly played game if you asked me. Squealers will have a totally different game next week when the NFL and the refs will turn against them. The refs will hear all week about their calls and will make sure they don't have another debacle. But that is part of winning home field. The refs get caught up in the stadium emotion.

Quoting pittsburghnurse:
nothing sends chills up my spine like an ice storm. Hopefully west of the mountains we'll be spared the worst of it.

TRP, could it just possibly be that the STEELERS are playing better ball? Just another possibility thrown in there for thought.



STEELERS WIN! STEELERS WIN! STEELERS WIN!

West of the mountains should be mainly rain as they do not grasp the cold air damming.
