NEW YORK — All eyes are on a storm that will develop and could be our first legitimate chance of snow this weekend.

Models are all indicating a storm to form off the Carolinas and head north and east. There is a lot of issues with this system that the models need to grasp before meteorologists could determine how much snow we get this far out.

The first piece of energy associated with a storm that is still currently located off the coast of California. Eventually that storm will then spin off another low pressure off the Carolinas.

The models both show that there is still enough cold air to support snow, but the track still has to be figured out since that determines whether it will be an all snow event or not.

Though not as crucial, the timing of the system also is to be figured out and could be off by 12 hours or so allowing the storm to start as early as Friday evening or linger into Sunday morning.

Even with the outlook of snow being a possibility, we’ve been seen all of the major storms to date track well south of us and totally miss our region. That kind of track is still on the table leaving us with a partly cloudy Saturday.
