Another storm system could develop in the East this weekend.
First it will blanket parts of Kansas and Oklahoma with snow Wednesday.
This storm could bring more rain, wind and snow to the Northeast, Ohio Valley and Appalachians.
Rain and a few thunderstorms are possible in the Southeast Friday.
Some precipitation should also spread into parts of the Northeast and Ohio Valley. Where some cold enough air is in place along the northern fringe, that precipitation may fall as snow, as shown in the forecast map below.
By Saturday, the majority of computer models suggest low pressure will have developed somewhere near the East Coast.
As mentioned earlier, the exact track and intensity of the low will be crucial for determining any impacts. That includes where the rain-snow line will set up and the strength of any gusty winds this system might produce.
For now, the best chance of snow Saturday stretches from parts of the upper Ohio Valley and eastern Great Lakes to the Appalachians and interior Northeast.
Closer to the Interstate 95 Northeast urban corridor, precipitation may fall mostly as rain Saturday and Saturday night.
Again, it’s too soon to hone in on precise snow – and rain – total forecasts in the Northeast. Check back for updates in the coming days.
