Winter to rear its ugly head this weekend

Snow Cat

A storm has potential to bring the most significant snowfall of the season from part of the Midwest to part of the central Appalachians and on to Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and perhaps New York City. However, there still some uncertainties with the storm track.

Essentially, the 50- to 100-mile wide band of heavy snow will be right along the northern and northwestern edge of the rainstorm this weekend in the Eastern states. If you wander a few miles on either side of this zone, wherever it sets up, you are not likely to get accumulating snow.

Along the I-95 in the mid-Atlantic, the storm track is very critical for precipitation type in the Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia areas, as to whether snow, rain or a wintry mix falls. It is also critical for New York City as to whether or not the prime snow area reaches this far north. Since the air is only marginally cold, it will have to snow hard to bring a substantial accumulation. Otherwise, much of it may melt as it falls.
