Looking at the snow totals from the New York National Weather Service Office, I couldn't help but notice the large amounts of snow on the northern part of Long Island with up to 27" (while much of Manhattan had much less). Click on the to picture to the right.
Could we be seeing "Lake Effect Snow" coming off of Long Island Sound?
Back to Middle Tennessee, we will have a nice Saturday in the sunshine with highs in the mid 50s from Nashville southward, low 50s north and east.
On Sunday, showers return followed by some t'storms during the afternoon and evening hours.
Although a few of those storms may become strong, right now it does NOT look like the kind of severe weather situation we had two weeks ago when up to 22 tornadoes raked the mid-state.
However we will be monitoring the situation Sunday night on Stormtracker.
A weather system this week should bring some showers on Tuesday that MAY end as snow showers by Wednesday. We'll update that as we get closer.
In addition, the GFS & ECMWF models are both indicating an invasion of very cold arctic air by next weekend (highs below freezing). This could bring snow chances into the picture from Friday night on. Again, that's down the road, so we'll keep you posted.
