Storm Update - Warm Air and Rain on Sunday

Summary

The storm system tracking through the East Coast on Sunday will stay to the north and bring widespread rain. A few snow showers will develop in the northern and western Mid-Atlantic on Monday morning with a trace - 1 inch expected.

Update

Here is a quick storm update for Sunday into Monday.

The GFS model from the previous forecast had the right solution of the storm system tracking to the north, which will bring warm air and rain throughout the Mid-Atlantic on Sunday. Widespread rain will make it a wet day with rain accumulations of 0.25 - 1 inch likely.

Below is a look at the NAM model’s depiction of precipitation type and intensity from 9 am Sunday, December 3rd through 7 pm Monday, December 4th.

Below is a look at the NAM model's forecasted snow accumulations on Monday, December 4th. Snow accumulations are not expected to be greater than 1 inch.

A few snow showers could also extend into northern North Carolina on Monday.

After these snow showers move through on Monday, confidence continues to grow for a weak storm to move through the region on Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday, December 6th. This storm is expected to bring light snow accumulations throughout the Mid-Atlantic. 

I will have more updates on this storm and snow potential in the next forecast on Monday.
