Confidence Continues to Grow With Storm System Next Week

Posted on
The cold has arrived and will continue into the weekend as some light snow events push through the region. Could see a few inches with these systems, but nothing intense. In terms of next week. As I have been saying the past few days, an active pattern will move into the East next week. A significant snow event is possible for PA and the Northeast while areas further south could get a mix of wintry precip. Confidence with details remains low as a lot could occur between now and early next week when the system should track in.
