Feb. 4th,
February can be the stormiest month of the winter,and right now its certainly starting off that way,with each storm that comes along stronger than the last one.
Yesterdays storm dropped a couple of inches on me and 3-6 along southern coastline.The next storm starting after midnight and through tomorrow,will drop at least a foot,except for those areas that don't mix.
Another storm for next sunday night into Monday looks to be even stronger,but track will be the important feature that determines whether some people will get buried with strong damaging winds or the storm is farther out and the effects are less.

Feb.5th
Heavy snow is here and coming down at rates 2 to 3 inches per hours.Expected to last through the day,but getting lighter this afternoon.

Feb.6th
Things look quiet into the weekend,but will have to watch off the coast Sunday.Odds are that the system will stay far enough out to just brush,but the issue is a trough may set up over us and pull some of the moisture from that system,especially if it comes closer.Either way we will get some snow,just a question of how much and where.

Feb.7th
Weekend snows looking less likely, except for some show showers off and on,as a great lakes disturbance slides throw.I'm still not sold on little or no snow.
Still see some possibilities of the off shore low linking up with the trough,but I'm leaning away from it right now.Cold will be the word through next week.

Hey,Lt,I gotta tell ya,looking at the extended forecasts,they don't don't know what is going to happen.Their all over the place,there are going to be multiple systems coming across the country and they really don't know how they are going to interact,if they are going to come together and if the southern stream comes into play.
Its funny looking at the forecasts.

Hi NEw, Henry M. on his Accuweather Blog sees next Thurs/Fri. storm as a snow maker for the inland locations, but mostly rain along the coastal plain.

GEOS-5 has a weaker quick moving system for the NE on Monday..that doesn't really get much severe til it's over the ocean.

Nothing written in stone,but Taunton NWS has given up on the weekend storm,for me,I'm not so sure,and advise anyone to keep tuned for any changes.

Still in a active weather pattern,and as long as the vortex hangs tough over the hudson bay,nothing will change.The pattern actually is effected upstream.Large high pressure in Siberia,extremely dry high pressure in Alaska,makes for the storm track into the west coast and then across the US off the SE coast.Once it reaches the east coast,then many things come into play to determine what happens to the low pressure that forms.
Over the next couple of weeks we can expect these systems every 3 or 4 days.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.

WHILE NOT SET IN STONE...COASTAL LOW PRESSURE WILL PROBABLY PASS
FAR ENOUGH EAST OF OUR REGION TO SPARE US ANOTHER SIGNIFICANT
WINTER STORM SUNDAY INTO EARLY MONDAY. NONETHELESS...A PERIOD OF
ACCUMULATING SNOW IS STILL POSSIBLE.

you got that right just about a foot of snow on the ground.
At least there was no wind or bitter cold with this.

About 9 inches now and still snowing hard.
Looking at radar,there is a dry slot moving up through Conn.,will see if it makes it up this far north

8 to 12 in the storm tomorrow? Or Sunday's? Yikes, who can keep up with the stuff?

I guess we are out of the woods up here by the Wisconsin border. Our storm (your future storm) is going south east of me.

Good luck with yours all!

so we have winter storm Nika. If we're going name our winter storms,can't we make them american names?
Anyway,the stage is set,8-12,but I suspect many areas will see more than that.We will just have to watch the rain/mix/ice line tomorrow as it move north.

Lt,Its always tricky with these storms that transfer energy to the coast. I didn't see that about the parent low moving that far west,that would change things a little,but I have my doubts its going that far west,certainly something to watch.

Hi,looking,yep,boooring.
Actually I think I read where the Broncos are going to take the comedy show on the road,coming to a comedy house in your area soon.

Jus,
We've got hit hard a couple of times,but its been far enough out,we didn't get the brunt,will have to see what happens This weekend.

Also looking at todays storm that is developing in the center of the country, Radar and Satellite seem to show the storm centered in Ok. , moving NE towards the Chicago area--thats much further West than I thought the primary low would be. That could pump a lot more warmer air up along the East coast. Thats just an observation I'm throwing out there.

Hi NEw, just looked at the 12Z GFS, and while it does show a big one for central and northern New England, it's not the typical Nor'easter that comes up from the southeastern states. It seems to develop out of a storm coming in from the West, transferring it's energy along the or off the NJ coast, and hitting you guys hard, but for me in Sw CT. and the general NYC Metro area, not so much, especially NJ not getting too much. I know its early and a lot can change.

About the "super" bowl: around here we decided that the Broncos should just have set up a row of lawn chairs on the sidelines, handed the ball over to the Seahawks, relaxed in the chairs and enjoyed a Bud or two while the Hawks ran the ball into the endzone, over and over. BO-ring!

The groundhog did predict 6 more weeks,so I guess we better get prepared for a lot more winter.Assuming you think a rodent can predict the winter.
