Mid Atlantic Weather Updates

Winter Storm February 10/11 2012

By: weatherenthusiast1, 10:53 PM GMT on February 10, 2012

12AM Update:

General 1-3 inches, with isolated 3/4 inch totals. Also important are gusty winds and the inverted trough which will swing through tomorrow night. Models continue to target this trough, which would bring wind and snow squalls to the area, around the PHL metro area.

Many models (RGEM, HRRR, RUC, RR, Highres) suggests NYC will not have the highest totals- Central NJ into PHL South and west should have the highest probability of seeing the highest totals.

10PM Update:

No change to forecast- continue with forecast of 1-3 inches area wide, all the way up I-95 to NYC

The next winter storm is at our doorstep: as always I will be presenting live updates and as well as a forecast at 11PM.

Here are the basics:

Start time: Around 12AM Saturday
End Time: Late Saturday/Early Sunday morning
Preliminary Snow Amounts:

Philly: 1-3 inches
N-W Suburbs: 2-4 inches

Synopsis: Complicated storm with coastal low+ cold front+ trough on Saturday. Will start off almost everywhere as a period of rain, and changeover to snow at different times (later East/Coastal sections compared to West/Lehigh Valley)
