The next storm that has a chance of bringing accumulating snow to a large part of the Northeast will arrive on Monday, Jan. 27, 2014.
The train of Alberta Clipper storms that began a couple of weeks ago will continue into next week. The storms originate from the western provinces of Canada, where they get their name.
The pattern will have yielded close to a dozen systems by this weekend. The clipper storms have been of various strength and have taken a variety of paths.
Prior to the potential for accumulating snow over a broad area on Monday, a few locations from the central Appalachians to New England may receive a dose of snow on Saturday. The snowiest spots would be from West Virginia to western Pennsylvania, but one or two brief periods of snow can reach the I-95 corridor in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and New England.
After the large and strong clipper storm blasts the Great Lakes with wind, snow and whiteouts Friday night into Saturday night, the next clipper storm will take a path farther south.
