Nice days before a dreary weekend, and the Euro does have a big northeast storm next week:
With the exception of the cold front moving through tonight with a slight chance of a brief light shower, it will be dry for the next few days on Long Island before the showers move in Saturday morning. On and off showers will then linger into Monday.
Yesterday, the GFS was showing a lobe of the tropospheric polar vortex dropping down into the northeast on Tuesday next week with extremely cold air. The overnight run wasn't as extreme as the lobe split over Canada. While Tuesday will likely be the coldest day next week, the Euro isn't showing anything too crazy.
While the Euro does show a big storm for the northeast next Wednesday with rain for Long Island and heavy snow for northern and western New England, the odds remain fairly low. It has support from some of its ensembles, but only a few of them show snow on Long Island.
