Historic Nor'easter poised to slam Boston and the Northeast U.S.

A potentially historic Nor'easter is brewing for the Northeast U.S., where blizzard watches are up for much of eastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. The storm, dubbed "Nemo" by the Weather Channel, is expected to bring heavy snows of 1 - 2 feet, coastal wind gusts over hurricane force, and moderate to major coastal flooding. During the peak of the storm, Friday night into Saturday morning, snowfall rates of 2 - 3" per hour can be expected. These intense bursts of snow may be accompanied by lightning and thunder. The cites of Boston, Hartford, Providence, Portland, and Burlington are all likely to get more than a foot of snow, and two feet of snow will probably fall along a swath from the western suburbs of Boston to Southwest Maine. With the Nor'easter generating these heavy snows expected to bomb out with a central pressure of 972 - 976 mb, the rapid flow of air around this low pressure center will generate ferocious sustained winds near 50 mph at the coast, with wind gusts in excess of hurricane force--74 mph. The combination of heavy snow and high winds will make travel extremely dangerous or impossible, with near-zero visibility in white-out conditions. Total snowfall from the storm is likely to rank in the top ten for Boston since weather observations began at Logan Airport in 1936. According to NWS, here are the top snowstorms since 1936 for Logan Airport:

1. February 17-18, 2003 27.5"
2. February 6-7, 1978 27.1"
3. February 24-27, 1969 26.3"
4. March 31-April 1, 1997 25.4"
5. January 22-24, 1945 22.8"
6. January 22-23, 2005 22.5"
7. January 20-21, 1978 21.4"
8. March 3-5, 1960 19.8"
9. February 16-17, 1958 19.4"
10. February 8-10, 1994 18.7"
11. January 7-8, 1996 18.2"
11. December 20-22, 1975 18.2"
11. December 26-27, 2010 18.2"


Figure 1. Predicted wind speeds in knots at 7 am EST Saturday, February 9, 2013, from the 00Z February 7, 2013 run of the European (ECMWF) model. The model is predicting sustained winds of 50 knots (57.5 mph) will affect Cape Cod and Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. Multiply by 1.15 to convert knots to mph.

Serious coastal flooding expected in Massachusetts
The high winds from the storm will drive a damaging storm surge of 2 - 4' along the coast of Eastern Massachusetts Friday night and Saturday morning. Of particular concern is the flooding that will occur during the Saturday morning high tide cycle, as that is the time of the new moon, which will bring the highest tide of the month. The ocean's height in Boston varies naturally by about ten feet between low tide and high tide, so it matters greatly when the storm surge arrives, relative to the tidal cycle. Thus we speak of the "storm tide"--how how the water gets above the high tide mark, due to the combination of the storm surge and the tide. During Hurricane Sandy, on October 29, 2012, a potentially very damaging storm surge of 4.57' hit Boston, but arrived near low tide, so the water level during the peak surge did not rise above the normal high tide mark. As of noon EST on February 7, 2013, the latest storm surge forecast from the GFS model is calling for a storm tide of about 3.4' above high tide (MHHW, Mean Higher High Water) on Saturday morning, which would cause only minor flooding in Boston. This would be the 10th highest water level on record in Boston since tide gauge records began in 1921. According to former NHC storm surge expert Mike Lowry, who now works for TWC, the official top 5 storm tides at the Boston tide gauge, relative to MHHW, are:

1. 4.82' - February 7, 1978 (Blizzard of 1978)
2. 3.92' - January 2, 1987
3. 3.86' - October 30, 1991 (Perfect Storm)
4. 3.76' - January 28, 1979
5. 3.75' - December 12, 1992

More serious flooding is expected in Cape Cod Bay to the southeast of Boston, where the northeast winds from the storm will pile up a higher storm surge. A storm surge of 3 - 4' is predicted from Scituate to Sandwich Harbor Saturday morning. The surge will be accompanied by battering waves 20' feet high, and major flooding and coastal erosion is expected. Major coastal flooding is also expected on the east end of Nantucket Island.

Quoting Pipejazz:

Exactly. Check out "Retraction Watch" where almost gleeful accounts of retractions due to falsifying data is reported. Also the punishment is reported. Everything from retraction of the paper for using non-sourced photos to loss of grant for x years for more egregious behavior. Today someone in Germany had their PhD revoked because of barely changed wording and not citing the original work. Top Gunning through the internet is getting more pervasive.



Academic honesty and accuracy does not necessarily mean the truth, which also doesn't take a PHD, or a college degree to understand, its quite simple. It has nothing to do with honesty or inaccuracy. But I guess common sense isn't so common is it? One either "gets it" or they don't...

What good is knowledge or intelligence without wisdom?

LOW PRESSURE ALONG THE MID ATLANTIC COAST ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON WILL
UNDERGO MAJOR INTENSIFICATION
AS THE LOW TRACKS TO THE SOUTH AND
EAST OF LONG ISLAND FRIDAY NIGHT. WHILE THERE LOOKS TO BE A BRIEF
CHANGEOVER TO RAIN OR A WINTRY MIX AT THE COAST LATE FRIDAY MORNING
AND AFTERNOON...ALL PRECIPITATION WILL GO BACK TO SNOW BY EVENING.
IN FACT...TRENDS IN THE MODELS HAVE BEEN COLDER...INCLUDING THE MOST
RECENT 18Z NAM WRF. A HEALTHY E/SE FLOW IN THE BOUNDARY LAYER LATE
TONIGHT INTO FRIDAY AFTERNOON WILL LIKELY BE SUFFICIENT ENOUGH TO
BRING IN SOME WARMER AIR AT THE COAST. THE OFFSETTING FACTOR THOUGH IS
THE RAPIDLY DEEPENING LOW AND THE ISALLOBARIC COMPONENT OF THE
WINDS...WHICH COULD ALLOW THE COLD AIR TO DRAIN SOUTH INTO THE
FORECAST AREA EVEN FASTER THAN WHAT MODEL GUIDANCE SUGGESTS. IN
THIS CASE...SNOWFALL TOTALS COULD BE EVEN HIGHER AT THE COAST IF A
CHANGEOVER DOES NOT OCCUR
. PREFERENCE WAS TOWARD THE COLDER ECMWF
BASED ON GOOD RUN TO RUN CONTINUITY AND TRENDS IN OTHER MODELS.

Probably just my work computer, but I can't get that to load. What are your thoughts? I'm sure you know better how to read those maps than I. So far my best guestimate has been ~5 inches for most of the Broome County region.


Its only seems to be showing .5 to .75 inch precip but I am unsure what that turns into as snow . but I guess when recon info is fed into the models there may be a different story .

Blizzard of 2005 is still the most memorable for me. I'm wondering if this storm will rival some of these numbers. These are from Essex County in Northeast MA. Official measurement from my home town Methuen was 27 inches, but I measured over 30 in my yard in several locations.

Haverhill 36.5 inches (92.7 cm), 9:59 p.m. January 23, 7 Ft (2.1 m) drifts
North Andover 33.0 inches (83.8 cm), 1:00 p.m. January 23, 6 Ft (1.8 m) drifts
North Beverly 32.0 inches (81.3 cm), 8:25 p.m. January 23

It's amazing just how fast this storm forecast has progressed for the Long Island/NYC area. Started as rain. Then rain changing over to snow, maybe an inch or two. Then to three inches... then five... Now we are up to over a foot, maybe 20 inches possible? Wow. This has sure escalated so far! We'll see what it really brings!
