Stay Tuned this week Guys ! Big Snow Potential for Easter Weekend

I'll be doing an in depth Blog, and Post towards mid week, on some big time late season snow potential. This could come in two shots over the Easter Holiday weekend. The first shot of snow or wintry precip, comes in for Friday night into Saturday. This will be an Overrunning event/Weak wave of low pressure. It appears this will setup just to our south, too where the Delaware Valley, will be on the colder side of the system, thus snow or a mix is possible during this time. Any shift north and it's rain, so time to watch this system for trends. I'm more focused on the later part of the Easter Weekend, to which I'll explain now.

The second more important storm, will be a southern storm, that moves to a classic Coastal position near NC, and then NE off the M/A coast. This looks to be for the Easter (Sunday Night) into the Monday night time frame. The key here is a big change in the Upper Level Pattern with a Negative NAO developing.

With Strong H5 Upper Level energy, and a deep trough sliding in place over the Easter Weekend, this will bring down some cold air, from Canada, which appears to be progged as very impressive for late March. All Global Models are showing this setup and storm: The Euro, GFS, GGEM and UKMET are on board. This all being said, or in layman's terms: BIG STORM DEVELOPMENT, and a late season Snowstorm threat for our area.

I'll have Much more on this towards Midweek !

Take Care,
Ruggie
