A fairly potent and fast moving clipper system is forecast to dive out of the Great Lakes this weekend and off the New England coast on Sunday. This system will spread a swath of snow showers and light snow from the Great Lakes across the Appalachian mountains and into the northeast.
As the clipper dives south of the Capital Region on Sunday, some flurries and snow showers are expected with the greatest chance of any very light accumulations well to the south and east of Albany. Initially, the system will be moisture starved and moving far enough south to bring very little snow to Albany. The storm then has the potential to turn the corner and head northeast just off the Atlantic Coast and grab some moisture at the last minute off the western Atlantic, as indicated by the latest GFS and European computer forecast models.
Due to the larger size of the storm and potential to gain strength and additional moisture, the system could bring a swath of snow to portions of southern and eastern New England, and perhaps as far west as the eastern tip of Long Island. As a result, portions of Cape Cod and Downeast Maine could get brushed by a light to moderate snowfall as the storm pulls away.
Yet another clipper system will dive southeast on Monday night and Tuesday with additional flurries and snow showers for many of the same locations. Temperatures will also remain chilly with each clipper system bringing a reinforcing shot of cold air.
Any weather-related decisions should always be made after consulting proper statements and forecasts from the National Weather Service.
