Sorry folks. There is no indication that there will be a major thaw anytime soon. The blocking pattern that got us into the mess is still intact, and it's going to hold through at least next week.

The air temperature Thursday will not be terribly low, but winds gusting to 30 mph will make it feel 10 to 15 degrees colder than it actually is.

Most of the Northeast will not have any significant snowfall Thursday, but areas just downwind of the Great Lakes and in the mid-Appalachians will pick up a few inches.

Here is something to think about. In Johnstown, Pa., there has been measurable snowfall on 15 days this month, and the total snowfall is approaching 60 inches.

And how about this? Yet another snowstorm could move from the Ohio Valley into the Northeast Sunday night and Monday. More on that to follow.
