Possible Blizzard/Signifant Snowstorm in Northeast Late This Week
by Tashi Singh

For much of the northeast, snow has been conspicuously absent from the forecast – and from the actual weather – so far this winter.

That could change later this week as the potential exists for a major snowstorm/blizzard to affect more than 50 million.

Areas from D.C., to possibly even New York City are in the swath most likely to receive the heaviest snow from the storm. Various computer models are showing the potential for accumulating snow, which in some areas could be significant.

However, since we are still five days out there is still plenty of uncertainty regarding this potential storm. The exact track of a storm will hold the key as to which areas in mid-Atlantic and New England are hit with heavy snow and dangerous highway travel not to mention scores of flight delays and cancellations during Friday into Saturday.

Unlike previous systems so far this winter, if it all comes together, this one should have sufficient enough cold air to produce snow and disruptions to daily activities in many areas that have seen little thus far.

Should the storm develop to its full potential and take a track just off the mid-Atlantic and New England coastline, then a blizzard could unfold.

With a full moon this weekend tides will already be running high, which would likely worsen the impact should any coastal flooding occur.

Based on the most likely storm track at this time, the swath from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore and Philadelphia appears to be right in the crosshairs of the swath of heavy snow.
