OVERVIEW (By Forecaster Mike Natoli) Regardless of heavy rain or snow, we all are likely to see a disruptive storm moving up the East coast at the very least.
- We have refined our ideas to two scenarios depending on surface temperatures. Temperatures will be marginal, near or slightly above freezing, which will initially make snow accumulation difficult. However, as computer models have been projecting for the past 24 hours, high snow fall rates may overcome warm surfaces and create a surprise situation Wednesday afternoon.
- We remain cautious on this storm, because a slight shift of precip arrival or type over just 2 hours on Wednesday morning will impact the entire day's forecast. If we decide we need to make a snow accumulation forecast, that will be issued either later tonight or Tuesday morning. Until then we have narrowed the potential outcomes to TWO SCENARIOS, outlined in the next section.
