March 17, 2013: Crushing Blizzard Possible Next Weekend

Folks, winter is a long way from ending around here.   Absolutely bone-chilling air is moving down into the central and eastern U.S. this coming week.   Now, several of the forecast models (GFS, European) are predicting a major east coast Nor'easter with heavy snow and high wind over the Carolinas and Mid Atlantic late next weekend.   The development of this type of intense, late March system is not unprecedented and is wholly consistent with an arctic air mass moving toward the East Coast.   This could be a crippling, 1+ foot snowstorm for D.C.-Baltimore. 

I just want to toss the idea out there now, and I will have much more to say about this storm, as we follow the forecast every day this coming week. 

In the meantime, we are still on track for a 1" or so slushy snow-sleet-rain mix tonight and tomorrow morning.  I'll have more to say on this storm around 4 pm stay tuned.
