Winter Storm Threat: Feb 14-15 (Final Call)

A trough will traverse the Ohio Valley today and will start to take on a negative tilt as it reaches the East Coast, with a nice vort max developing over the Carolinas that will allow for a rapid strengthening of the surface low once it moves off the coast. Cold air aloft and the upper-level dynamics will be fairly supportive of snow, but somewhat-limited moisture and a warm boundary layer (despite the snowpack) will prevent a bigger snowfall within the forecast region.


Risks are more towards the lower side across the region with this system, though there is some upside potential near the coast if the low can strengthen faster. A little event to top off this snowy period before temperatures jump well above normal next week.
