Chances Increasing for Significant Storm

There is remarkable agreement among the various models as to a significant coastal winter storm next Tues and Wed that will affect the Carolinas thru the Mid-Atlantic and perhaps southern New England.  But it’s about that time in the mid-range where many times the models “lose” the storm altogether or usher it out to sea for a couple of model cycles.  It’ll be interesting to see if that happens.

But at this point, both the operational and control runs, as well as most of the ensemble members, show a late-season winter storm that looks to add enough snow to break all-time snow totals for the month of March in the Mid-Atlantic.

Standard NC winter weather caveats apply…much can change in several days and a storm like this is definitely climatologically unfavorable.  But…all other signs are pointing to just the right ingredients coming together.

Finally, as I said in the last post, the last time Raleigh had a major snow this late in the season was 7.3″ in 1983.  As I recall, it was a time of Cinderellas, if you know what I mean.  And maybe, just maybe…tonight another red team hops a ride on the pumpkin coach!
