Strong Clipper Tomorrow - Tuesday

          As most of us from New York to West Virginia saw about 1 to 3 inches with higher amounts in the mountains from this previous weak clipper system, they just keep on coming. We will have a scattered clipper tonight meaning area's that catch intense bands could receive 2 to 4 inches, meanwhile some backyards might not catch any bands and receive nothing, right now most bands are located in the mountains. We will have another clipper system, this time stronger, come through the area tomorrow night into the morning hours of Tuesday, this could be a little bit more impacting also, next the higher mountains and ridge tops could see a foot because of better ratios coming from colder conditions. After that, this snow will not be as fluffy and easy to shovel, in fact, the snow yesterday and even today depending on elevation could be brushed off the drive way, this snow should be slightly less fluffy, but not very wet, as temperatures across most of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, New York, western Virginia and central and northern Maryland should be at the highest, 30 degrees. But it is likely temperatures in central and western Pennsylvania, as well as New York and West Virginia will be in the 20's. Here is a snowfall totals prediction map for this strong clipper, be sure to read on after the map.

          Now as you can see, this looks like a pretty big snowstorm, which it could be, also as you can see, there is still some uncertainty with this event. Now I know the local stations are not saying this is some places and the NWS is only saying "light snow, chance of snow 40%" is because of the uncertainty is some locations. This map is based off good short range models, like the NAM models. There will be impacts from travel on this and some business's could be closed, as well as schools in area's where heavy snow and even the 2 to 5 inch range is. Keep here for updates on this strong clipper and other upcoming weather events. Stay safe and I will see you in the next update which should come soon.
