Watching Next Wednesday

We could see another nusiance snow event in the Wednesday-Thursday timeframe. Of course being five days from now, the computer models are arguing over a warmer/wetter (GFS) and a cooler/snowier (ECMWF) solution.

On the surface map as the storm approaches, high pressure will sit over eastern Canada. That's something we look for as meteorologists to help lock in the cold air. The GFS has one round of precip moving through on Wednesday as mainly rain. The Euro has two rounds of precip, one on Wednesday and the other on Thursday.

It's way too soon to nail down any solution. You know how much these things change in just a matter of hours, let alone 5 days. But you can bet I'll be watching this for you.

Check out the high in eastern Canada on the surface map taken from the 12Z GFS below.

Dan Amarante is on tonight at 10. I'll be back tomorrow (Sunday) night. I don't think this will be a large snow producer...nothing like the storms from last year!
