EVENT...BEST SHORT WAVE ENERGY AND MOISTURE ADVECTION AIMED E LONG
ISLAND AND SE NEW ENGLAND AS SURFACE LOW CONTINUES TO DRIFT NORTHEAST
AND DEEPEN...
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...AS PER LATEST GOES WATER VAPOR AND UPPER
LEVEL SATELLITE WINDS MAIN TROUGH  HAS REFORMED A BIT FURTHER WEST
MID LATITUDES TO  CENTRAL LAKE ERIE  TO EASTERN OHIO  TO WEST VA AND
PROGRESSIVE  TO JUST OFF THE NC COAST AND FURTHER OFF THE SC AND GA COASTS
TO TAKE ON A MORE NEGATIVE TILT RECENTLY.    SHORT WAVE ENERGY COMING
ACROSS THE EASTERN OHIO VALLEY AND CENTRAL/SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS ALONG
WITH THE NOSE OF ADDITIONAL JET ENERGY TOWARD THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS
WILL MOST LIKELY HELP ENERGIZE THE STORM FURTHER IN TIME ON TUESDAY.
FOR NOW...SURFACE LOW CONTINUES TO DRIFT NORTHEAST AND FURTHER DEEPEN
AROUND PIVOT  POINT NEAR 37/38N AT 71 TO 72W AND AHEAD ARE THE DEFORMATION
BANDS CONTINUING THE SET UP AND ORIENT WSW OR SW TO ENE AND NE FOR
MODERATE TO LOCALLY HVY SNOW AND EXTENDING INLAND SE MA...RI AND SE CT
AND EASTERN LONG ISLAND.    DIFFLUENCE CONTINUES TO STRENGTHEN  AT THE
SAME TIME DEFORMATION BANDS ALSO STRENGTHEN AS MAX PRECIP WATER VALUES
OF CLOSE TO 0.80" GETS BRIEFLY CLOSE TO THE ISLANDS SOUTH OF THE CAPE..
KIND OF LIKE THE HAT TRICK FOR HVY SNOW DEVELOPMENT AND SUSTAINING.
.
AN ANNOTATED SATELLITE GRAPHIC SHOWING THE HEAVY PRECIPITATION
THREAT AREA SHOULD BE AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET ADDRESS LISTED
BELOW IN APPROXIMATELY 10-15 MINUTES.
.
SHORT TERM OUTLOOK VALID 0315-0615Z...MEDIUM TO HIGH CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...DEFORMATION BAND AND WEAK DIFFLEUNCE ALL GETTING
TOGETHER WITH MAX PRECIPITABLE WATER OF CLOSE TO 0.80" TO CONTINUE TO
DEVELOP DEFORMATION SNOW BAND AREA THAT WILL CONTINUE TO SHIFT NORTH AND
NW AND WEAKEN AFTER AWHILE ON OUTER PRECIP AREA...WHILE NEW DEFORMATION
BAND THAT FORMS/DEVELOPS FROM  SOUTH BECOMES THE NEW MODERATE TO HVY
SNOW AREA.   SEE AREA OF MODERATE TO HVY SNOW EXPECTED IN THIS PERIOD
ON GRAPHIC THAT WILL BE POSTED SHORTLY.  PLEASE ALSO SEE WPC QPF AND
WINTER WEATHER GRAPHIC AND DISCUSSIONS FOR ADDITIONAL DETAILS.
