    A weak and broad area of low pressure will approach the East coast tonight along with some troughing aloft and shortwave energy. The energy in the southern branch of the jet stream is quite strung out and not all that impressive. The model consensus is for precipitation to start during the late evening, give or take a couple of hours from west to east. Not an impressive system with some of the BUFKIT profiles showing some gaps in the moisture, with the mid level forcing weak to say the least. Due to weak omega, in general snowfall amounts will not exceed two inches.

    Blizzard warnings remain in effect for the highest elevations of the northern portions of the Sierras where snowfall amounts in excess of three feet expected. Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are also in effect for the surrounding areas, as well as, Washington, the Great Basin, the Intermountain West and the Central/Southern Rockies. Coastal areas will have an increased risk for heavy rainfall and flash flooding-- especially along the stretch of coast from northern California to northwest Oregon and a small area in southern California.

    By Saturday evening, showers and thunderstorms should become more numerous across the Deep South as a warm front lifts northward from the Gulf of Mexico. Lighter snow amounts for the Mid-Atlantic and little snow for NC Saturday night and Sunday. However, with a strong surface wedge in place significant icing event for east from the crest of the southern Appalachians into the adjacent Piedmont is possible.

    ... Winter storm winding down through the Mid-Atlantic states as of Sunday night. The majority of the precipitation shield is across Maryland, the coastal regions of Virginia, as well as Delaware. Moderate to heavy snowfall rates are still possible as the storm captures some Atlantic moisture to work with, while at the same time moving further out to sea. The winter weather discussion from WPC has additional details on this system.

    The more significant facet to this storm system will be the winter weather impacts. On Friday, heavy snow is expected to occur along the Colorado Rockies and northern New Mexico. From Friday night into Saturday, widespread snow is forecast to effect areas from the central plains to the western portions of the Ohio Valley. The heaviest snowfall accumulations with this event are currently anticipated across northern Missouri and central Illinois

    A multiday storm is bearing down on the region. Currently, a small but intense band of snow is steadily progressing eastward. Numerous crashes have resulted in sluggish interstates across PA due to a rapid drop in pavement conditions. WWAs have been expanded into lower elevation terrain as a result of a colder-than-expected airmass sticking around the region. For southern areas, including SW CT and the NYC metropolis region.

    An almost-perfect January storm track is "let down" by zero interaction with the northern stream, leading it to be yet another "majority" rainstorm. However, there are still some winter headlines, albeit limited. WWAs have been posted in New York and Massachusetts due to some areas of freezing rain that are possible on the northern periphery of the storm.

    A minor impact system will impact the Northeast and parts of New York and Pennsylvania on January 3rd. There appears to be a widespread chance of a light snowfall, with the rain/snow line being around the CT-RI latitude. There is the potential for some southern stream energy to bolster the storm more than the ensembles are suggesting, but overall impacts will be light.
