Those you have been around my forecasting know I am not a fan of long-term forecasts, but if I talk of events happening too far into the future I make sure to have a level of "cautious confidence". That is true about what I see next week.

The model data as well as other climatology factors are pointing toward a potential snow event mid to end next week. I have seen this developing for some time now, but given the trending we have seen in recent events I didn't want to say anything too early. This is probably still too early, but the data is mounting.

I am not saying we will have a storm. This is not my forecast; rather I am giving you all a heads up to a potential snow event. I have no more details yet that I wish to post. Give me at least until this weekend to gain more confidence in a forecast for me to say more. Suffice it to say, I will be keeping an eye on this.

I agree with you. Without the influx of arctic air nothing frozen to speak of will happen. I am hoping for a pattern change soon, but not yet convinced this storm will be the one. I will know more later this weekend.

Quoting stansweather:
Until there is a real pattern change allowing the artic air to come down into the eastern states i see no good chances of frozen precip.There have been some hints of this happening but so far it hasnt been happening.
