The northeast will have the chance to see a historically powerful Nor'Easter tonight in to tomorrow. With pressures below 960mb, hurricane force winds, and heavy snows, I get the feeling this storm is winter's last stand. I am a strong believer that it takes a major event to finally change the pattern, and this one could be it.
Look at the offshore winds tomorrow afternoon and the tight pressure gradient. It should be an incredibly photographic storm from space:
While it's hundreds of miles away, that storm will actually affect our weather in keeping us cold for a couple more days. Canadian air will be drawn in on the backside of this beast keeping us well below normal today and tomorrow.
Along with the cold air today, expect some snow showers. No accumulation, but just a reminder that winter isn't ready to let go yet.
Hold out just a little longer, a warm up is in store next week!
