The icy conditions and the snow that is currently wreaking havoc across the southern tier of the U.S. could turn into a significant storm threat for the East Coast in the coming days.
This weather maker may be strong enough to end the ongoing snow drought for portions of the mid-Atlantic and the Northeast. When will this wintry weather make its appearance and what can you expect?
Read on for all of the details.
Arctic Air Will Fuel Development of Wintry Precipitation to the South
The south-central U.S. and the Southeast took it on the chin this weekend as a potent mass of moisture came together with a blast of cold air to create a wintry weather landscape.
Forecasters are still fine-tuning their predictions about how this will impact the mid-Atlantic, the Northeast, and New England to start the new week.
This far-reaching storm is predicted to ride along the flow of the jet stream, clashing with the southern edge of the mass of Arctic air that was entrenched over the northern U.S. on Saturday.
The strength of the Arctic air mass pushing toward the Eastern Seaboard and the position of the jet stream over the next few days will dictate where the moisture falls and to what degree.
