Model indications continue to move the Low off the coast, with it strengthening just to our north. I do feel we will see snow, but for snow lovers, we won't see much in the way of accumulation. As I have been saying, the timing and position of the Low are key for us to see accumulating snow. Well, the position seems to be too far east, and the timing gives us snow during the afternoon Tues. This late in March, snow will not stick if it falls during the day, sticking only if it falls after sunset. If the Low moves slow enough that the snow continues past 7:00pm then we will see some accumulation, but honestly, I don't see more than an inch.
All this said, if the Low does slow it's forward progress or shift more to the west, we could see higher accumulations, and that is possible since we are a couple days away from the event, but I am not seeing that happen. This is why I wait with my snow accumulation amounts, and why I don't hype storms.
Since the potential does exist for a shift in the Low I will continue to monitor this event. I will have another update as conditions change. Follow me on Twitter (@wxmanmd) for frequent weather tidbits and updates.
