Bigger Winter Storms for MD in February?

So far, this has been the “winter of the clipper” here in Maryland. We have had a series of little storms drift in from out of the Great Lakes, and produce small amounts of snow each time. With a general flow out of the NW, and an upper level trof in place since mid January, the temps have been below average as well. All of the Snow Hounds here in the Mid Atlantic would call that a waste of perfectly good arctic air. With only about 4 weeks of meteorological winter left, the big question is: “Will this pattern change?” I believe the answer is “yes”. We should get a few more coastal storms in February, but that also means we’ll likely see a mix of rain and snow. With the clipper storms, it has been cold enough for a pure snow. Look for the first coastal storm around the 8th, and the next one around Valentine’s Day.
