    Strong Weekend Winter Storm To Be Followed By Another Canadian Blast

    Written by Nat Gas Weather on February 26, 2014 in NatGasWeather - No comments

    The latest forecast data continues to come and we see no big changes other than the cold blast coming next week looking colder. After several more days of cold temperatures and areas of light snowfall over the northern US, temperatures will briefly moderate this weekend as a strong winter storm tracks out of the southern Plains with a band of heavy showers and powerful thunderstorms. This will allow a surge of warmer air into the Ohio Valley and Northeast. What it will also do is allow a strong stationary warm front to set up where a wintry mix of precipitation will intensify and lead to potentially hefty snowfall accumulations into the colder air somewhere over the Northeast. This region could potentially remain in an area of heavy precipitation for a fairly long period of time Sunday and Monday as the storm will still have to traverse through the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic before precipitation would come to an end. So while this may not turn into a full fledged Nor’easter with a low bombing out just off the coast, some of the impacts from it could be significant, especially if heavy snow and ice set up. On the backside of the storm will likely be another impressive blast of Canadian air which should push deep into the Plains and Southeast with temperatures dropping into the single digits and teens. This cold blast keeps looking more impressive with time and when combined with very high nat gas demand over the northern US, draws will be well above normal nationally. This coming cold should bring another round of temperature anomalies of 20-35°F colder than normal. What follows would be a few days of moderating temperatures March 8-9th before another strong winter storm and reinforcing cold blast sweep through the north-central US. There is still nothing showing anything but cold conditions over the high
