Forecast Last Updated at Monday, January 26, 2015 at 7:29AM

Snow Showers Today

A clipper low is moving to the Mid-Atlantic Coast today becoming a deep low off the New England Coast tonight. According to Boston NWS Chief Science Officer, Bill Belichick, it will suck all the air out of footballs in Boston Tuesday as a snowstorm wallops the Northeast Coast tonight and tomorrow. For us... not so much. Expect snow showers today tapering to flurries tonight--a dusting to 1" for most but 1"-3" possible at higher elevations along the western escarpment. Click here for our snow forecast map. Tuesday will be cold. The next front arrives Thursday with a light rain shower to light snow showers scenario. Superbowl snow for the Southern Appalachians? Possible.

Forecast Discussion

A clipper low races southeast this morning. It will develop into a Coastal low between Hatteras and Virginia Beach today moving up the Northeast Coast tonight and Tuesday. It's a huge event from NYC to the northeast along the coast; however, we only get a few snow showers today, tapering to flurries tonight.

We'll be caught in the cold, broad wraparound flow from that low through Tuesday night. Winds become blustery today and will not settle until later Wednesday morning. Tuesday will be very cold with scattered clouds. Wednesday is mostly clear with temperatures moderating somewhat by afternoon. Valleys will be colder than ridgetops Wednesday night.

The next front arrives Thursday. By then temperatures will be warm enough for light precipitation in the form of rain showers; however, colder air arrives Thursday night changing rain showers to snow showers or flurries.

High pressure builds in Friday and Saturday. Friday is cold with clearing skies. Saturday is less cold.

Low pressure builds in northern Mexico and the Western Gulf late Saturday and Sunday. The potential exists for "Superbowl Snow" Sunday, especially late day and Sunday night with snow showers lasting into Monday. Stay tuned. Next Monday looks "SuperCold".
