Won't spend alot of time on this now but superbowl weekend weather is anything but solid. Storm will definitely form in Gulf States...and track up the East Coast Sunday night into Monday. The track of the storm way out in left field by all models...nothing new. GFS wants to give us some snow..Canadian..less.....Euro - Rain. So far this winter the models have been anything but good...not even fair with storm prediction. In any event..if you are attending parties Sunday night - be prepared for weather to be a hazard especially east coast. Below - Sunday evening by the 3 models....take your pick.
A front stalled off East Coast will produce rain with a chance of wet snow on the northern edge from Mid Atlantic to New England into Tuesday...but amounts..if any - will be quite light.

Let's hope it is wrong. Have a nice weekend.
