Snow Forecast Through 2/4, Western Pivot

Tomer’s Take: It’s a powder day in the Northeast! I’m forecasting 2-3 additional Clippers through 2/4. Out West, a fast Northwest Flow (NWF) continues then the whole pattern pivots on/about 1/28. This spreads snow and colder temps south through the middle and southern Rockies. Then a quiet period builds 2/1-2/4.
