MAJOR MID-ATLANTIC SNOWSTORM IN 2 YEARS...

A major storm is developing for the Mid-Atlantic States, this snowstorm is the biggest snow for the region since that of February 2010. The most impacted location looks to be our important US Capital City; Washington, District of Columbia.

The GFS took the lead to take this storm further north with accumulations, then NAM jumped on but the most reliable model EURO or EMCWF is not following suit as much therefore it keeps most of the action at the latitude around NYC.

Surprising the fact that this snowstorm is expanding to the Northeast, this was completely out of the question some days ago as models agreed on it, but now it's becoming more of a reality.

My latest snowfall forecast..


Yes, I drew over half foot for New England all the way up to Maine. I have to be very careful as to whether I have to increase snowfall for Interior Southern New England. Honestly I thought I was going to be out of this snowstorm...

BEWARE: If you live anywhere around the DC area to Baltimore into southern Penn, you are up for a big round of heavy snows because as soon as rain changes over expect very thick/fat snowflakes to come down and pile up. As colder air moved in and as the night comes around, the snowfalls could accelerate. There could be some significant snowfall ratios as well.

It's completely not out of the question that there could also be near-blizzard conditions for certain areas as the storm rapidly deepens generating those strong winds, even some thundersnpw and localized whiteouts from falling, and drifting snow.

Connecticut Forecast Snowfall as of now...this will likely change




Power outages, widespread power outages are possible from this storm. Please have a back up plan in case you are left in the dark.




Very strong gusty winds are another issue increasing the danger for power outages.




Also, a rain/snow mix is expected in many locations as well before the snow event or during the daytime hours...




One last danger...due to the strong winds from offshore there is also a risk for Coastal Flooding from Massachusetts down into CT per Long Island Sound, Long Island, New York Harbor, New Jersey and eastern DelMarVa coast. As winds keep pushing waters towards the coast, that water has to other place to go, since it''s being pushed, inland causing even more trouble. This storms is a low mover.
However, this does not include the Chesapeake Bay for the potential of coastal flooding.
These coastal areas are under a Coastal Flood Watch. Except for coastal Rhode Island and Massachusetts


The offshore areas to the immediate shaded coast are under a storm watch.

This is a multiple-threat storm, as usual with nor'easters. If you want, you can check out Blizzard Nemo, and also Weather Forecasting. Please don't get intimidated by what models say, if you think it's way too much or too little.

Well, if there are more updates later, I'll be reflecting them here or on the main blog..

Al images are larger..click on any above.

Oh, I almost forget...we also have this today...


Please comment and for those in the storm path please be aware and keep up with the updates. Especially for New England

If any other "significant snowstorm" could threat anywhere, which I doubt, I am officially done with my winter snowmap graphics...no more of those until next 2013-2014 season..

Hi Max, I do enjoy your posting and maps etc. You put it right out there, that takes some guts--right or wrong! I wish you would visit and post in the Northeast weather blog by Blizzard92. You would be most welcome there with your comments. I am losing hope fast with snowfall from this storm-it has remained too warm here and the storm is moving East too much, not enough northward movement. And the precipitation shield is not that impressive. Just a real "bust" in many areas. I really do not think our area, SW CT., will get anywhere near 6" of snow, more like 1-2" if that. Thanks again, and hope you are feeling better. LT Stamford CT.


well thank you for caring and for inviting me over..still sick btw

Honestly Im hanging, but loosing grip to my 6" forecast.. i have no idea now what is going to happen, we will now by tomorrow morning.

Yay, you extended the accumulation bit backwards closer to where I live, maybe I shall see my third dusting for the month of March, that would be amazing.

Thanks Max!

Well done, Max, I hope it verifies. These warm temps. today scare me but I know colder air will be drawn into the system.--Just a note, 53 years ago today, the North East had just been "clobbered" by a major snow strom. (March 2-5, 1960)


I know.. that's what is driving people to think it's not going to snow as mush because of the warm temps...but no, it will
