Northeast Snow Next Week Includes Possible Coastal Storm

A string of Alberta Clippers could bring plenty of wintry weather
Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014

A storm that has a chance of bringing accumulating snow to a part of the Northeast will occur late Sunday into Monday. Another potential storm for the middle of next week is also being monitored.

The train of Alberta Clipper storms that began a couple of weeks ago will continue into early next week. Prior to dipping into the United States, the storms pass over the western and prairie provinces of Canada, where they get their name. Most of these storms are moisture-starved.

The pattern will have yielded close to a dozen clipper storms by this weekend. These storms have been of various strength and have taken a variety of paths.

After a large, strong clipper storm blasts the Great Lakes and a large part of the Northeast with wind, snow and whiteouts into Saturday night, yet another clipper storm is due to sweep the area.

This clipper is scheduled to take a track across the Great Lakes Sunday and Sunday night, then the St. Lawrence Valley and northern New England on Monday. A few inches of snow will fall along the clipper's path.

Any snow that flies along the I-95 corridor from Boston to New York City to Washington, D.C., will be in the form of flurries.

The harsh cold in the wake of this clipper could rival prior arctic blast's as the coldest so far this winter.

Yet another storm may affect part of the East Coast prior to the big game at East Rutherford, N.J.

According to AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Bernie Rayno, "We have to watch for a storm trying to make a run up along the Atlantic Seaboard during the middle of next week."

Rayno is concerned that upper-level steering winds will change next week. While the change in jet stream winds would end the long train of Alberta Clipper storms, it could mark the beginning of a pattern favoring a different breed of storms, which move up from the South.

There would still be plenty of cold air in place for snow if such a storm were to hug the coast, rather than head quickly out to sea. Storms that typically move up from the South pack a great deal of moisture from both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean.

Enough cold will also be present farther south for this possible storm to bring snow to the eastern Carolinas.

However, that cold could be so expansive that the storm waits to develop until well off the East Coast or its track is kept well away from the Northeast coast.

In the wake of a midweek storm threat, another clipper system may return snow showers and flurries to the Northeast on Thursday.

Details on the track and intensity of the storms and the extent of disruptions to travel and other daily activities next week will be made available as soon as possible on AccuWeather.com.

Wow!! Great headline!! Snow across the country. I can't wait for it to snow in Phoenix. Maybe we'll get enough snow to build a full size snowman or have more than one snowball.

No fair...the NE gets all the snow and we get nothing! I live in Seattle and I would love to have an Arctic snow blast event happen here just once this year...all we ever get is a teaser snow once in a blue moon followed by slush followed by rain rain and more rain hours later. Of course, that doesn't include the mountains that surround us. They get plenty of snow but it would be nice to be able to enjoy some of it down in the lowlands once in a while. :)

crssysexy2 It's nothing more than a shift in the weather that happens ever so many years; not all weather conditions that come around like this is cause for this non-existent holy apocalypse! If you track weather patterns over a series of time you will find that this is nothing unusual and it's occurred before just as it is now and it will come around again with no help from some omious force to wipe out the human race. Besides, if anything wipes out the human race IT WILL BE THE HUMAN RACE! After all, the one thing humans do better than anything at all is discover new ways to destroy others so we will end up killing ourselves long before our galaxy can't support life on this planet!

The scientists who constantly predict global warming are so tied into the political system they
cannot do objective scientific solutions. Politicians, theologians, and scientists all have their
ax to grind. Once the scientific community takes a position on anything it is heresy for them
to disagree. The liberal media will suppress those scientists' views who disagree.

there many articles that can be googled if you Google [ global cooling ]. Here is a website explaining the current situation of global cooling and warming.
I was dreaming of having Palm trees growing in front of my house but now I'm disappointed it will not get warm enough here in Illinois.
