Strong storm expected in the Northeast this weekend

Amidst an anomalous pattern, which features a large ridge in the Western United States and a changeable Pacific Ocean wave progression, sensible weather changes have been observed across the Continental United States. Nowhere is this more apparent this morning than Minnesota, where snow is on the ground across much of the Central and Northern parts of the State after a very warm October. Nationally, though, the anomalous warmth has gone on a hiatus as well, as the Western USA ridge acts to promote cooler air surging southward.

These anomalous patterns on either of our coasts can often preclude multiple storm threats, including the potential for larger ones, and this pattern will be no different. After a handful of storm systems in the Central US and Great Lakes will come a larger, more significant storm threat later this weekend in the Northeast States. A deep trough is expected to dig into the Mississippi River Valley this weekend, interacting with energy over the Southeastern United States.
