Most of the Northeast I-95 corridor is seeing mainly rain from this storm system. However, a few pockets of snow were reported in the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. areas on Sunday afternoon.

Below is a look at what to expect from this latest winter storm.

Snow, Ice Through Monday Night

  • Timing and locations: Through Monday for parts of New England, and into Monday night for parts of coastal eastern New England.
  • Precipitation types: While there may be a narrow stripe of plain snow, most areas will either see just rain (close to the coast) or a mixed back of snow, sleet, and freezing rain, along with possibly some rain. See inset maps and your local forecast page for specifics.
  • Snow, ice amounts: Patchy additional snow accumulations of 1 inch possible in northern and eastern Maine. In parts of this zone, ice glaze of one-tenth to one-quarter of an inch is possible. A widespread damaging ice storm is not expected.
  • Possible impacts: Slick travel conditions, particularly over bridges and overpasses in areas with a thin glaze of ice accumulation in parts of interior New England.
  • Winds: North winds of 15 to 30 mph are expected in many of the above-mentioned areas through Monday.

Erika Dissipates

By Dr. Jeff Masters
August 29, 2015

Tropical Storm Erika charged into the teeth of Hispaniola's high mountains on Friday night, and emerged from the encounter shattered, without a closed circulation, and is no longer a tropical storm. Measurements on Saturday morning from an Air Force hurricane hunter aircraft failed to find any tropical storm-force winds associated with Erika, and the plane did not find any westerly winds, showing the the storm had degenerated to a tropical wave.

Although much media attention weather-wise (at least recently) for Hawaii has been about tropical storms (Kilo’s possible impact on the Hawaiian Isles and more in the pipeline) an even more interesting story has been the exceptional rainfall that has drenched the islands in recent days and the on-going record hot summer. Despite a record warm July, accumulating snow managed to dust the summit of Mauna Kea on the Big Island. Here are some details about the above events.

What the 5th IPCC Assessment Doesn't Include

By Angela Fritz
September 27, 2013

Melting permafrost has the potential to release an additional 1.5 trillion tons of carbon into the atmosphere, and could increase our global average temperature by 1.5°F in addition to our day-to-day human emissions. However, this effect is not included in the IPCC report issued Friday morning, which means the estimates of how Earth's climate will change are likely on the conservative side.
