Mid-Atlantic Daily Snow

Heads up, there may be fresher snow! Read the latest Mid-Atlantic Daily Snow

Rounds of storms this week, some snow in NY


A weak storm will move an area of rain through most of the region on Monday. Temperatures will be around freezing in NY with wet snowflakes mixing and accumulating in the Catskills with trace-2 inches of snow. A few scattered snow showers continue in NY on Tuesday with a few wet snowflakes in WV as well. Another round of snow moves in from the north Wednesday night. Let’s break it all down…


The last weekend of March has ended and we still have resorts open throughout the region. Hard work by snow-making crews throughout the season has allowed bases to hang on despite a pretty warm and rainy winter. Here is a look at the percent of terrain open as of Sunday. 

The next storm will impact the region Monday. This storm has gained more moisture with it and will bring areas of light rain throughout the region. Temperatures in the northern Mid-Atlantic will be around freezing with a few wet snowflakes mixing in and accumulating at the tops of resorts. The Catskills will see the most of a trace - 2 inches. 

Here is a look at the HRRR model’s depiction of precipitation type and intensity from 12 pm Monday, March 27th through 8 pm Tuesday, March 28th.

Most precipitation will clear the region Tuesday morning but some scattered snow showers will continue in NY throughout the day. Minimal snow accumulations are likely. Here is a look at the HRRR model's snow accumulations on Monday and Tuesday. 

Another area of precipitation will develop on Tuesday evening in WV, which might bring some wet snowflakes but minimal snow accumulations are likely. Wednesday dries out with another storm quickly moving in from the north Wednesday evening. 

This storm system will swing an area of precipitation associated with a strong cold front through the northern Mid-Atlantic Wednesday night. It looks like a pretty strong burst of snow squalls will be associated with this cold front. Snow will fall heavily and produce a quick 1-2 inches of snow with gusty winds creating whiteout conditions. Here is a look at the NAM model’s depiction of precipitation type and intensity from 2 pm Wednesday, March 29th through 8 am Thursday, March 30th.

Thursday will be a dry day, but yet again another storm will quickly move into the region on Friday, March 31st. This next storm will be a large system that will move light precipitation on Friday, with heavier precipitation on Saturday, April 1st. A few snowflakes are possible in NY on Friday, but this storm will track well to the north and bring warm temperatures and widespread rain for the weekend. 

Here is a look at potential rain accumulations on Friday, March 31st through Sunday, April 2nd. 

A lot of mountains are suspending operations during the weekday and will be open for one more weekend on April 1st and 2nd. Some of these dates are subject to change depending how much rain does fall. See below! 

Thanks for reading and I will have the next forecast Tuesday.
