Monday Discussion : Cold Start to the Week

After a cold and dry weekend, our work week will start off the same way the weekend ended.  We’ll see mostly sunny skies, and plenty of cold.  Highs will struggle into the low 30s.

But we’ll see blue skies and sunshine, due to the high pressure pushing in from southern Canada, in addition to the large high pressure across the Gulf Coast States.  The major winter storm that dropped snow across the Mid-Atlantic is pushing out to sea, taking the snow and rain off shore with it.

So we’ll see a quiet first half of the work week, as the high pressure takes over the weather story for the next 2 days.  Big changes are possible for the weekend, as we’re tracking a possible winter storm developing.  Current guidance suggests it will take a favorable track for snow in the Hudson Valley.  The timing would be Saturday afternoon and night, into Sunday morning.  The potential for a significant snow is on the table, but we’ll slowly get into more detail as we get closer.  We’ve posted a long Fireside Chat on Facebook, where we discuss the threat in context.  It’s important to remember that we’re 6 days, and that a lot can change.  But if you’re looking for a detailed analysis of what might happen this weekend, please check it out.  The video is very long, but between the 5 minute and 20 minute mark, we discuss in detail the potential for this weekend.

We’ll have more updates each day, as we get closer.  For now… have a great start to your week!
