2nd Guess Map and Discussion for 1/2-1/3 Storm
The overnight and afternoon model runs are coming into much better agreement in regards to the Thursday/Friday snowstorm for the mid-atlantic and northeast. Two systems (one dropping out of the plains and one coming out of the Gulf) will combine to form a strong area of low pressure off the eastern seaboard. The problem is that these two systems will remain separated until they're departing our area. This will keep precipitation light (dry for many) until this intensification occurs. The biggest question mark has been exactly when this will happen.
