A storm that has a chance of bringing accumulating snow to a large part of the Northeast will occur late Sunday into Monday. Another potential storm for the middle of next week is also being monitored.
The train of Alberta Clipper storms that began a couple of weeks ago will continue into early next week. Prior to dipping into the United States, the storms pass over the western and prairie provinces of Canada, where they get their name. Most of these storms are moisture-starved.
The pattern will have yielded close to a dozen clipper storms by this weekend. These storms have been of various strength and have taken a variety of paths.
After a large, strong clipper storm blasts the Great Lakes and a large part of the Northeast with wind, snow and whiteouts Friday night into Saturday night, yet another clipper storm is due to sweep the area.
