Nor’easter could bring heavy amounts of snow next week

If you are a fan of snow, you may be in luck next week.

The National Weather Service is currently forecasting a Nor’easter for the middle of next week that could produce heavy snow.

By Wednesday and Thursday of next week, low pressure systems in the central U.S. may consolidate as they move eastward and start to take a nor’easter track. Model guidance currently seems to have fairly good agreement (for 6-7 days out) with a low track near the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast coast. This could spread frozen precipitation on the backside of the surface low in the cold air, with snow possible inland with best chances west of the I-95 corridor.

Small shifts in the track of this low could lead to sizable differences in the impacts, including the rain/frozen precipitation line of the system, and how far west the precipitation spreads.

As of now, the area could see some significant snow fall, but with the storm forecast still several days away, it is something we will keep on top of.
