Another week and yet another storm on the boards as we round out this week. It's pretty impressive that in two weeks two major storms have developed along the east coast, both displaying eye like features as they moved into Nova Scotia. We are now heading into our third weekend of February and yet another storm is showing up in our computer guidance that suggests another strong storm will develop between Friday night into most of Saturday.
The storm in question is situated over the central plains and expected to dump over a foot of snow in parts of Kansas by Thursday night. As this storm rolls north and east it will transfer it's energy to another storm developing over the southeast states. AGAIN how fast the transfer of energy occurs will play a key part in how much cold air can wrap in behind the system for Friday night.
As the new storm forms Friday afternoon into Friday evening precipitation will run out ahead of the system and will move into Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania during the nighttime on Friday. Since the sun angle will not be a problem and enough cold air will be in place (ESPECIALLY outside of I 95 to the N & W) we will see a burst of snow first before we change to plain rain.
Our ABC 2's RPM model shows the first batch of snow could arrive between 9 pm -11 pm Friday. Again, I have a feeling our ground temperatures will support mostly rain from Baltimore City south and east. However, areas west and north west of the beltway may start with some snow.
By Saturday afternoon most areas will go over to rain with heavy snow falling over Northwest New Jersey, Central PA, and Western Maryland.
AT THIS TIME!

There is a lot to get excited about if you are a lover of sky gazing. Astronomers are calling Comet Ison the comet of the century as it heads our way. If all things go as planned you may have quite the show by early next week
Major changes to the weather look to develop as we head into next week. While a blast of cold air will move east bound this weekend bringing the coldest daytime highs since last March to the Mid Atlantic; a series of arctic fronts will line up heading into next week.
