Winter's Revenge (Part 2)

I'm going to be honest. The next week and a half look more like mid February to me on the models and that means multiple snow events and plenty of arctic air, not a polar air massive. The first event on Monday night will start as snow, then go to sleet, and eventually end as a light rain but not before several inches of wintry precipitation accumulate. Higher elevations will likely get the most.

(Sounding supports mostly wintry precip)

The second storm is possible Wednesday-Thursday which could bring significant snowfall to the area. With the snow comes temperatures that might not exceed freezing which is uncommon for the spring season. The euro below shows a huge snowstorm for the Mid-Atlantic and northeast as well as the DGEX:
Looks like just because spring starts tomorrow doesn't mean winter is over. Well actually it does, but you get the idea...
