The Post Super Bowl Battle of Storm Placement

Going into February I want to be VERY clear. Our winter hinges on the end of next week after the Super Bowl.  There is a battle setting up that looks to be a classic battle of low placements that would give us either a major snowstorm or a “Meh..” kind of storm. Now, I’m not hyping anything because this wouldn’t be until NEXT WEEK. That’s 10 days from now. Anything can happen.

This will be the Super Bowl of where the storm low pressure sets up. If it sets up tucked into the coast a bonanza would occur for us. If it sets up too far east, south of Cape Cod then New England (who will probably win the Super Bowl) will get the snow. It’s actually setting up very closely like our storm at the beginning of January. We will see. It will be a battle ALL WEEK. After the Super Bowl, we will see who the winner is. Stay tuned!

Let’s go Falcons!  (I’m an NFC guy and HATE the Patriots)

GFS has a fairly deep low centered south of Long Island but more tucked into the coast which is our best possibility for a substantial snowstorm . I’d  like it a bit more wrapped up, and just a bit more off the coast. 
The EURO has a very deep low centered off Long Island and south of Cape Cod. An ideal set up for a New England bomb. This would give us less than an inch of snow. We would want this centered closer to the coast and a bit more tucked in. 



Radar looks spectacular! Looks like we’re getting a blizzard. Instead, what you see are enhanced flakes coming from the W/NW from the Great Lakes. If you want lots of snow, drive about 8 hours W/NW towards upstate PA and upstate NY near Buffalo. Then you will see real enhanced lake effect snow. Almost a foot in Buffalo today!

Sunday still seems to have a better than 50% chance of seeing sustained flurries which won’t amount to much as we have a bunch of short wave energy flying all over the place. It is cold, so that helps as well.  I’m more interested in a clipper coming down from Canada Tues-Wed time frame. If it takes a sharper dip in the jet stream, we could see something a little more substantial. I wouldn’t be talking 6+, but in the 1-3 range. Yet, this is from a weather teacher I have, he said, “Where it wants to snow..It will. Where it doesn’t want to..It won’t.” Essentially, if we haven’t seen it steady so far, do you REALLY expect it to happen?

February is up in the air folks. It will be cold, but how cold and for how long? Yet, there are VERY strong signals that around the 5th or 6th of next week a significant event could take place. It’s back an forth. Appreciate what we have right now. On a side note this January was almost 6 degrees ABOVE NORMAL in temperatures. That’s just totally insane..What is going on?
