Travelers returning from the Thanksgiving holiday and commuters alike will soon be thwarted by nasty weather. The same storm system responsible for bringing blizzard conditions and over a foot of snow to parts of the Midwest this weekend will soon be responsible for heavy snowfall over parts of the interior Northeast while returning flooding woes to the I-95 corridor. Rain already overspread most of the Northeast throughout the day Monday. The low’s track across the Great Lakes has allowed warm air to surge northward such that precipitation has only begun as snow in New York’s Adirondacks and in Northern New England. The rain won’t last long across much of the inland Northeast, however. A secondary low pressure system has already begun to develop over the New Jersey coast and will help draw cold air southeastwards as it tracks northeastwards. The cold air will arrive too late for the coastal plain…

A quick-hitting but intensifying storm system will bring early winter-like conditions to parts of the Northeast for the second time in less than a week. The snowfall will be plowable for many inland locations in New York and New England. Holiday and commuter travel may grind to a halt in some places, as the snow is expected to intensify during rush hour in parts of New England. The weak wave of low pressure was already producing rain and show showers in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York’s Southern Tier as of Monday evening. The surface low was riding along a cold front downstream its parent upper-level low while an area of weak high pressure was funneling arctic air from Canada southward toward the Northeast. The transport of warm air from the south over the cold air from the north has helping to produce light precipitation for most of today. The…

Record cold is on the way for Thanksgiving across the Northeast. Temperatures will nosedive below zero on Thanksgiving morning for parts of the region, with temperatures staying below freezing all the way to the coast. Ahead of the cold outbreak, two systems will produce snow in New England. Is it November or January? This is your Sunday Storm. The airmass responsible for the Thanksgiving arctic outbreak is currently locked away in eastern Canada with a trough centered over the Hudson Bay. Several shortwaves early this week will drag progressively cooler air toward the Northeast, but the truly bitter air will remain in Canada until Wednesday night, when a high amplitude ridge over the Western North America cuts off part of the Polar Vortex. Each shortwave  ahead of the arctic blast will bring with it the chance for snow, although no big storms are on the horizon. The coastal cities along I-95…
