Meteorologists on X are watching the next big winter storm that could dump snow across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast next week. 

On Wednesday, Arcfield Weather's report showed above-normal temperatures across the eastern half would end by late weekend. 

Bloomberg noted in a report, "The girdle of Arctic air around the north pole, known as the polar vortex, is poised to weaken and send a cold blast into the US. And because the El Niño weather pattern is in full force, the deep freeze could collide with stormy conditions on the East Coast to unleash snow this month."

"I think there are a couple snowstorms down the pipe," said Paul Pastelok, lead long-range forecaster for AccuWeather. 

Pastelok continued: "A big storm or two is not off the charts here for February or early March."

Meteorologists on X have posted a series of models that forecast accumulating snow early next week for the Mid-Alantic to Northeast regions. 

Spring is canceled? 

Meanwhile, Punxsutawney Phil - the famous groundhog weather oracle - might have been wrong in his early spring forecast last Friday.
