A dip in the jet stream, or a trough in the upper levels of the atmosphere, will begin to develop over the northeastern United States today, and will intensify over the coming week. This will bring the region sporadic chances for light snow from time to time as weak disturbances ride along the developing trough, helping to amplify it.

Of particular importance will be the passage of an Arctic cold front during the day on Monday. This front, in addition to bringing another chance for snow showers and snow squalls, will help bring a bitterly cold airmass into the region for the majority of the coming work week.
