Just a Snapshot
This is only a time stamp from the GFS Model… So not a precise radar or display of where all the flurries may reach. Just an example of the stretch of snow bands crossing the mountains… This one reaching Washington DC
Quiet Weekend For New Year Celebrations….
The Next Storm will arrive Monday. Here we see the arrival Wirth some ice on the GFS Model based on the cold air damming. I believe the pattern will repeat, meaning the air will be cold enough for an onset of ice farther south… perhaps near the Maryland/PA line. Eventually the warmer air will win and this will be a mainly rain event

Next Storm- So Far Away….
The chatter about a storm next week has some justification, but the timing and specifics can not be pinned down. The energy is still located near Hawaii and will race in on a strong Pacific Jet Stream. But this is ‘out of the grid’, so there is less data to rely on. Thus, the timing of the arrive keeps changing. At first glance, this was a weekend event (next weekend), but now looks like a Thursday/Friday thing.
I expect the timing, and the track to change, so I don’t want to get into too much. However, the jet stream will be to our south meaning we will be on the colder side. So FITF. The chance of snow looks promising.
Here is the difference in timing just between the GFS and Canadian Models
