A storm expected to occur on Thursday-Saturday is most likely going to impact the East Coast. This storm will occur when plenty of cold air is in place. Through this week high temperatures are expected to be in the low to mid 30s. When this storm impacts us, this cold weather will not go anywhere. This means snow will be the main precipitation that falls. The Blizzard of '96 occurred at this same time 14 years ago. That storm buried the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast. The pattern that is setting up for this storm is the same as the '96 storms pattern. This means by the end of the week we could be dealing with a blizzard the magnitude of the '96 blizzard. So stay tuned as this storm gets closer in time.
