With many of us getting precipitation should be interesting for some Euro has trended colder at the 12z run. Areas may get into some wet snows especially on the western side.

I feel the storm off the coast is starting to get going more and will soon become the dominant feature. Air will start to cool from the top down on the western edge can already see an area where the 850 temps are sitting at 2C if not colder out in western virginia.

It seems as though the precip will be too close to ending before much of PA outside some higher locals will get a chance, especially north, NY on further this becomes more interesting.

PA has a chance of some snow showers tomorrow morning as the cold starts to move in aloft.

Radar returns look very "snow" like.. i.e., smooth returns, instead of more blotchy like rain/sleet shows up.

Anyways.. sadness.

Painful. Were stuck at 36F. Quick drop to there and now stuck. So close, but yet so far...

Some places more than other.. sure. This is a good indicator of how low it could go.. doesn't mean it will, but, potential is there.

What would cause some areas to rather than others? Heavier precip? Don't they usually drop at least slightly with precip?
