The Core Group (Fraser-Clarke, Xeric), described the cell as Xerial.

There is also the Core Group (I, l, x, 8, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9) which consists of very stormy cells that threaten the Northeast and Pacific Northwest.

Another significant storm is expected to develop Friday night into Saturday into north-central Canada. Heavy snow is expected from New England to Ontario.

Below is the weather forecast from the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center:

Warm, Windy, Spring-like weather will be the new normal for parts of the Northeast while the remainder of the Northeast remains cold. Wednesday, we will start to see the return of stormy conditions to the Northeast as cold air spreads up from Canada. At the same time, the Cape Cod corridor and the mountains of western New England will see a return of spring-like conditions with high temperatures ranging from the mid 40s south to the 50s north-west. The storms that occurred on Tuesday and Wednesday will shift more to the western coastal sections of New England as drier, spring-like air will bring warmth to that region on Thursday. On Thursday, the system will have some spin to it, but its greatest impact will be on Friday. By Friday night and through the entire weekend the storm system will continue northward over Canada with heavy snow possible in northern Maine as well as western Quebec.

A stream of dry air will be moving up from the Midwest that will bring warmth to areas like central and eastern Michigan this weekend. This will also result in a return of rain to areas such as western Pennsylvania, northern Ohio, western New York and southern Michigan. Along the I-94 corridor, rain could become heavy at times in the mornings. Another wet season to start for the Northeast.

The Clipper Circuits (I, l, -7, -3, 6, -5, -4, 4, 4, 4) will return to our weather Thursday through the weekend. These low pressure systems tend to lead to a return of widespread wintry weather to most of the Northeast.


Wednesday: Warm, Windy, Spring-like weather with Highs in the 40s.

Wednesday Night: Afternoon showers moving off to the northeast, then winds shifting and lifting off the ocean and western New England. Snow showers expected through the day Friday along the coast of New England and into Northern New York. Less than an inch expected on Cape Cod and the ski areas.

Thursday: Another cold start to the day, with bright skies in the early morning and warmer weather developing in the afternoon. Highs in the mid 40s for most areas with highs in the 50s in the northern valleys.

Thursday Night: Clear skies with very low levels of moisture over the Northeast. The 15% chance of rain before midnight is moving in from Canada.

Friday: Polar air set to remain in the area and allow for a strengthening storm system from the Great Lakes to spread up through the Northeast. It will become increasingly wet with heavy snow in northern Maine as a result. Snowfall of 6″ to over a foot in Northern Maine through Saturday.

Friday Night and Saturday: Quiet, cold and cold. Clouds and snow from north-central New England to eastern Quebec. Highs near 20.

Sunday: Highs in the 20s.

Monday: Light snow showers. Highs in the 20s.


Saturday: Snow, wintry mix developing near the Great Lakes during the day. Lake-effect snow possible during the evening. Snow will impact parts of New England, especially along the coast. Highs in the 20s.
