I was talking to my friend from New England yesterday and he told me that a nor'easter weather pattern may bring a foot of snow to the East Coast. Hey, won't it be Spring by Monday? Actually, it will likely be more like Winter here and there and, even though this winter has been relatively mild, this East Coast blast may have them shoveling and it may influence us here in Western New York as well.

The Weather Channel reports:

First, colder air will gradually work its way into the East Friday, a pattern change led by a gyre of low pressure is slowly spinning down over the Great Lakes.

The southward dip in the jet stream from Canada may have an effect on our weather this weekend along with helping a potential East Coast blast of snow to develop.

So far Western New York forecasters are only calling for below normal temperatures Saturday and Sunday, but I'm gonna say, anticipate at least an inch of snow in the higher elevations and possibly some slush for the rest of us into Monday and Tuesday.
