This Week's Weather Not Good For Fishing on East Coast

Recommended Posts

Maybe you guys in the flyover states, the deep south  and out west will have better weather than us over here on the east coast.

Here is what Dave at www.wxrisk.com is predicting for the first week of February.

MAIN WEATHER ISSUES  NEXT WEEK (FEB 2-8) 

There are two scenarios we have to consider with this cold front  in the  week 2 forecast. 

The first one is being favored by the European model which has  done well over the past few weeks.   The European drives the cold front to the East coast as new arctic air  settles in across the Northeast  into   NC and  the  TN valley.    Low  pressure develops over the Louisiana Delta and tracks into into the Great Lakes.  This sort of scenario would not be a snowy track or snow event for any portion of  NC  VA  MD   DE  or  WVA because  Low pressure areas track being from Louisiana into the Great Lakes is going to pull up a lot of warm air.  But the European model still has that cold arctic High over the northeast  and   this implies therefore  a  POSSIBLE ice storm.  A second arctic cold front comes through the East Coast FEB 3.

  The Canadian and GFS models are significantly further to the east.  These two weather models   develop Low pressure over the Delta but track  the Low      either   " up"  the East coast     OR    off the  NC coast.  Given the amount  of cold air over the Northeast either one of the scenarios would produce a significant snowstorm for NC  VA  MD  DE. 

Right now   either  scenario is   equally  possible.  Given that the   Models are NOT  developing    the   Blocking patterns  in the Jet stream over   Eastern  Canada and  Greenland.... I   THINK  the  European scenario is more likely.

The system seems to be staying north of us as far as the ice and such goes.   Probably just a lot of rain.  I hope it doesn't end up icy.

I'm an extremely worried about this one.They are saying over a foot of snow here with possibility of ice as well.

I'm thinking of missing work...I can't drive in this stuff. :(

The last big one we had here I was in the hospital(3 days) watching my son being born.That was in 05'. I never had to worry about driving in any of it.  ;D

You guys need to look at this as a glass half-full thing.  Tons of snow, can't go to work, you might as well hop on the old computer and order up a bunch of new tackle!  There must be sale going on somewhere.  You might even save more money than you could've earned by going to work!    :D
