A WAVE IS PROGGED TO PASS ACROSS THE MID ATLANTIC STATES DAY 3,
PRODUCING SIGNIFICANT SNOWS A COUPLE DEGREES NORTH OF ITS TRACK.

MODELS, SO RELIED ON A CONSERVATIVE BLEND OF THE 12Z/29 ECENS AND
NAEFS MEANS--AFFORDING A WIDE CONTRIBUTION OF INDIVIDUAL ENSEMBLE
MEMBERS. THE AIRMASS ON THE HEELS OF THE WAVE IS QUITE COLD, WITH
LOW TEMPERATURES TUESDAY MORNING AT OR BELOW ZERO WHERE THE DEEPER
SNOW COVER LIES. THE COLD, MODERATELY WET PATTERN APPEARS DESTINED
TO HOLD ACROSS THE EASTERN UNITED STATES THROUGH THE MEDIUM RANGE,
WITH THE NORTHWEST COAST WET AS WELL ON THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE
LONGWAVE TROUGH OFFSHORE.
