Snowstorm For The Interior Northeast
There is a large storm system that will be moving through the Northeast and New England Wednesday February 26 2020 into Thursday February 27 2020. This storm could produce some snow for areas in the Northeast that have been in a snow drought all winter long. But the snow will not be enough to bring most of the major cities back into any sort of snow surplus. Most of the snow will be in the central Appalachian mountains and through New England. Most of the precipitation will be rain for the Northeast and I-95 corridor. For example, seasonal snowfall in Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York City has only been a combined 7.5 inches this winter. Normally these cities combine an average of 69.3 inches as of Feb. 25. Very limited amount of snowfall has occured this winter and this storm will not produce any snowfall for these areas.
The heaviest snow in the Northeast will fall over the Adirondacks of New York and the Green and White Mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire. These areas can pick up 6-12 inches of new snow.
Bands of lake-effect snow will start after the storm as moved on into Canada. Even with this lake-effect snow it will not really impact snow drought cities. Most of the snow squalls will not make there way into areas like Pittsburgh where snow has been very little there as well. The lake-effect snow will start on the back on the back end of this storm as cold air rushes in. Strong winds on the backside of the storm will pick up dramatically late Wednesday into Thursday night behind this storm.
After the storm system moves through into Canada, temperatures are going to plummet big time for the most of the East. This will kick up the lake-effect snow that is for sure. But, for most of the East, the biggest effects of this storm will be the drop in temperatures come Friday into the weekend.
With March 2020 around the corner hopefully this will be the last blast of cold air. This winter has been very mild with this only being the third cold air mass all winter for the Northeast and
I-95 corridor. The meteorologic winter actually ends February 29 and March 1st starts the meteorologic spring.
