So we have a little snow,changing over to a little sleet/frzing rain,then rain,but very low impact.People just have to take it slow.At most in my area an inch of snow,already mixing.
Doesn't look like winter is going to ease up anytime soon.Active weather pattern and each time a system goes by it pulls down artic air.Pretty strong system this weekend.Looks like it will come close enough to give us snow changing to a wintry mix. Still too far away to nail down exact track which ultimately determines who sees the most wintry weather.
Stage is set for major winter storm this weekend.Cold air in place today and reinforcing shot of artic air later today and again on Friday.High pressure will settle into the Maritimes this weekend and coastal cyclogenesis makes for a lot of wintery precip.Still uncertain of track,but whether there is a change over or not there will be significant snow,if the colder solution holds,we could be talking at least a foot of snow,especially inland from the coast.Will have to wait for a couple of days to nail down the track.
With our nor'easters the strength and track is usually determined by whether the northern and southern streams phase.At this time it looks like they won't phase for our weekend storm,so models are trending weaker and further south.Of course with these coastal storms things can change over the next couple of days,but it doesn't look like a blockbuster storm,in fact its very possible it may turn into less then 6 inches.Since the coastal system hasn't formed,we'll just have to wait and see.
