FINAL CALL: Winter Storm 3/3/19 to 3/4/19

Synopsis:
A strong "Miller A" type winter storm will be the focus of our discussion. Much like our storm in November (Miller A) a deepening low pressure system will develop in the southern United State and make its way up along the east coast. This weekend will also bring a shortwave overnight Saturday which will bring a few inches of snow. However, this will allow for Canadian airmass to funnel cold air into the Mid Atlantic giving Sunday to Monday the best setup for an all snow event.

While model guidance is and has been pretty consistent with this system but there are still possibilities of slight shifts in track that exist. As it stands right now NEPA will see the bulk of the snowfall, in particular the Poconos.

FINAL CALL Addendum:
**Current observation analysis and short range model guidance has indicated a shift in the track, making the system much quicker and flatter over the past 24 hours, this impacts total snowfall amounts for the entire region. The heaviest snowfall will fall overnight Sunday into Monday. **
