Clipper Spreads Snow into the South and Northeast…Bitter Cold Follows!

The clipper that is producing the snow across the Midwest and Great Lakes will also bring snow to the South and Northeast. In general 1-4 inches of snow will fall as in some cases rain changes over to snow. The Northeast will get some extra snow as a wave of low pressure develops along the arctic front.

(note: I am using the NAM 3km snow map because they seem to be close to what I am thinking.)

I do think the I-95 corridor cities should see some snow, maybe up to an inch or so.

Behind the storm, it will get very cold for a few days highs in the single digits to the the teens. The good news, the cold weather will only last for a couple of days before the mild weather comes back.

We do need to watch Buffalo, NY for a lake band to come in on Wednesday as the flow goes around to the Southwest for a time.

The South may see accumulating snow as the cold front changes the rain over to snow for a few hours. Again, it’s probably an inch or two of snow into the deep south, but that also means icy roads too.

The clipper will bring more snow to the Midwest and Great Lakes before the extreme cold gets in. Michigan will be hit hard today with up to 8-10 inches of snow. lake snows will be very heavy with a foot or two in the traditional lake areas.
