The Wash, Rinse, Repeat cycle is stuck ! A possible split flow down the road, gives us a chance to break this cycle.

Saturday Evening:
1/17/09
7:30 PM

Two different Patterns continue to be persistent this winter so far, and neither are favorable for snow here. Will it change in February ? Some Signs are pointing to a possible split flow developing, in which the northern branch and southern stream will come together in the east. This would be to our favor and is our only hope for snow chances, before we exit winter and head for Spring.

Much of this upcoming week is looking generally Cold and dry, as high pressure dominates from Tuesday into Friday. So another wasted week in the heart of winter for snow chances !

But before then, this weekend is another big miss with only some flurries and snow showers for Sunday into Monday. The coastal threat appears to be, a slim to none chance for Sunday night. Overall most areas will see little or no accumulation, but a coating to perhaps 1" is possible in some spots, with any heavier snow shower activity.

Don't be mad at me the forecaster ! Lol
I do my best to let you know all know when we have threats and chances for snow, but I don't like to sugar coat things that just aren't there ! This la Nina like pattern, even though weak, is really dominating the weather in our region. The storm tracks just to our north and west, is the biggest problem and until something changes it will be, as I call it: Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

The split flow pattern is what we really need for snow chances here, and until this materializes, we're going to see the same old thing, over and over again, with continued Snow for The Midwest and New England, but High and Dry for much of the Mid-Atlantic States.
