Spring arrives Wednesday evening around 6 PM.  But all eyes are on the end of week storm potential.

Vernal Equinox

A coldfront will slide into the Northeast Thursday afternoon with some rain showers.  Low pressure will flare up along the front Thursday night and quickly become powerful.

Nor'easter forms Thursday night.

Track is always critical, especially for Spring storms with limited cold air.  This one looks like an inside runner, hugging the coast, allowing mild air to flow in and rain to prevail for the majority of us.

Obviously this will need to be monitored closely, but with an upper level pattern like this, I don't see much of a chance for a colder, offshore track.

Spring storm expectations.

As of now, I see a lot of rain, probably over an inch.  There may be some wet flakes that mix in, but outside of the mountains, little or no accumulation is expected at this time.
