As the weekend draws to a close, we look ahead to what this week has in store.
The Northeast will have a nor'easter to deal with as a low forms off the east coast and moves along the coast. This low will tap some of the moisture from former Hurricane Tomas, and will dump some torrential rains in parts of the Northeast, including Maine, where 2-5 inches can be expected.
However, this will not be an all rain event, as cool air on the backside of this system will help some of the rain to transition over to snow in parts of New York and surrounding areas.
The accumulation however will probably be less than 5 inches.
Now an interesting set up will occur on Thursday and Friday as a low from the west coast shifts to the high plains and has the potential to bring substantial amounts of snow to the upper Midwest and a possible set up for severe storms across the mid south.
The only potential problem with this scenario is the moisture flow with this system.
There may not be enough moisture to allow for a significant severe weather outbreak, and this lack of moisture may inhibit the winter weather possibility as well.
An update on this system will come out on Tuesday,
