After today's very impressive rainfall, which exceeded 2 inches in some spots along with coastal flooding and damaging winds, this time next week we may be talking snow and a lot of it! As I always state when I write about something over 5 days out, there is a lot of time to watch this storm and see if the right “set-up" is there for a classic late season nor'easter.

Let me start off with what we know. As of now, the very reliable EURO model has been showing a very powerful storm mid-week next week and because of the -NAO, this spells out a big snowstorm around March 6th and 7th. At the same time, the somewhat reliable (loosely said) American model, the GFS model shows a storm to the north pushing the coastal low well out to sea hundreds of miles south of Connecticut. As usual a week out form these events, two different models with two very different solutions.

In any case, this storm is about a week out so there are dozens of model runs to come over the coming week and the "trough" will have to set up perfectly with a powerful -NAO to get this possible snowstorm next week. But will it happen...it's still too early to tell!

So stay tuned to WXedge.com as well as my Twitter page @zduhaimedmj for the latest updates on the potential for a late winter snowstorm!
