A clipper system is expected to slide by to the south bringing us our first round of snow overnight through Monday. A general 2-4 inches of snow will be possible for most during this event with the potential for more south (4-6" towards Philly) and less north (1-2" in the Poconos).
We are keeping an eye on what happens with this system as it moves off shore and combines with a coastal low pressure system for late Monday into Tuesday. Once the system get off the coast it will rapidly intensify bringing the potential for a second round of snow that could be quite significant.
There is a wide range of expected snowfall accumulations between the various models for this second round. The models (EURO, GFS, NAM, & RPM) are printing out totals anywhere from 3-18 inches of snow Monday night into Tuesday with the heaviest being across our eastern locations and much lighter amounts farther to the west. Each model still has a very different outcome on the timing, track and intensity of this storm system, so please stay tuned to the latest info.
