Never Ending Winter Continues For The Eastern US….

Written by on March 28, 2014 in United States of America with 0 Comments

After an amazing late March Mid-Atlantic snow, it’s hard to believe we have a lot more snow to come in the coming 2 weeks. The focus of snow will be over the Upper Midwest with 2 to 3 systems pushing from the Southwest/Texas up through the Lakes/Interior Northeast.

Here’s the significant snow from the last system.

It’s was a cold following morning in the storm’s wake with teens in I-95 city suburbs all the way to DC.

Despite the trough digging back west, DO NOT be fooled into thinking it’s a warm pattern for the east. There’s no big ridge and in fact with a still Canada-wide snowpack and a fairly flat upper height pattern, chilly air will manage to drop into the Ohio Valley and East more easily than you’d think. Sure, we’ll see surges of milder but the 2 or 3 systems set to track from SW up through the Lakes/interior Northeast, will bring plentiful snows to the North with cold shots into the East on their backside.

Despite the above height chart anomalies, check out the below CFSv2 temps for the next 4 weeks. STILL NO WARM AIR!

The refrigeration effect. Incredible to see this much snow still over Canada and we’re knocking on the door of April! This will have chilling effects on the US below, well into spring and summer.
