Here is the GFS 7am-1pm on Sunday. Notice the High to the north. It's snowing over our area.

Then Wave 2 moves in on Monday. The HP shifts to our Northeast and there is NOT another one coming in behind it. This gives the SE Ridge room to flex and bring in mild temps.

It looks like there is 2 waves again. One on Sunday and another on Monday. This could move up to Saturday and Sunday. We'll see how this progresses during the week.

FWIW this far out the NWS has the HP so strong over the NYS/Canadian border on the weekend, that the precip is mostly suppressed south.

I will have to keep a close eye on this. Heading to Boston Saturday morning and coming back Monday afternoon. That high pressure to the north seems pretty strong. Hope it keeps the precip down here for all of you and leaves me alone in Boston.

Euro def had a nice look to it in the upper and mid levels too. Should be a fun one to track. I may do a write up looking at the set up tomorrow if someone doesn't beat me to it. I like these set ups.

The trend so far is snow Sunday from wave 1 and rain Monday from wave 2. Wave 1 could be snow to rain for southern areas.

Now there's waves rather than one consolidated system? Doesn't this limit our chances at getting a "big storm"?

That HP is huge in this set up - and can we get one to fall on a Sunday into Monday??
Anyway IF we get the energy to eject fast out of the SW then we could see bigger snows but that is a BIG IF.
Need this depiction through Friday with a stronger JET off the split flow and tap some of that juicy GOM.
There is going to be a sleet/snow line here and my guess as I have seen in the past with such storms is a take a line basically juts south of I 80 and followed it out through Jersey and east somewhat though I think the South of LI (split it in half) is the same as the SE ridge is pumping.

Models are holding energy back. If it does not eject, like Mugsy said, this will come in waves and there likely will not be a big storm.

Do I have reason to worry that the high pressure will keep the precip field too far south for me to benefit from what's looking like a fairly promising situation?

Suppression is always a possibility with such a strong high pressure. Also the energy coming from the southwest could end up very weak and washed out. So there's two things we need to watch. Specifically to your question I wouldn't be overly concerned with suppression this year with such a formidable South East Ridge
Edit I was just looking at your location how far away from New York City are you?

On thin g to keep in mind is yes we would all love a big system comig out and passing south and deepening, but IMO that isnt what we want. A stronger system will amplify the ridge out in front and cut it west. The weaker waves is what we want as we will have the baroclinically enhanced snow totals, that will not be seen this far out. Trust me if the euro happened verbatim totals would likely be higher in baroclinically enhanced front o genesis.

at this time suppression may be an issue for you with wave one, however you should have snow and sleet Tuesday and better shot at frozen with the second wave around Monday.
