Snow, Ice Impacts

  • Monday: Snow should linger in the central Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic (West Virginia, northern Virginia, Maryland, Delaware) into the afternoon. The precipitation is moving east, but the rain/ice line and ice/snow line has been sagging south as cold air bleeds south. As a result, southern Virginia has changed to snow as of late morning. This transition from rain to snow, sleet or freezing rain was advancing into North Carolina as of noon on Monday.

  • How Much Snow?  Up to five inches of snow or more is possible for far southern New Jersey, Delaware, southern Maryland, central and northern Virginia, the District of Columbia and West Virginia. Snow amounts will taper greatly farther to the north, with only light snow showers expected in the New York City area and no significant accumulations in Boston. Accumulating snow and sleet, albeit not as heavy, is also expected as far south as northern North Carolina. 

  • East travel impact: Road conditions will continue to be hazardous in areas where snow, sleet and freezing rain fell Sunday into Sunday night. Conditions will deteriorate in parts of the MIddle Atlantic on Monday. Major impact on Northeast airport hubs with numerous cancelations/delays likely Monday.
  • East city impacts: Philly | Baltimore | Washington, D.C. | Richmond, Va.

The Record Quiet Hurricane Season of 1914: Could it Happen Again in 2014?

By Dr. Jeff Masters
July 25, 2014

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the slowest Atlantic hurricane season on record--1914, which had no hurricanes and only one tropical storm. Is it possible that the 2014 hurricane season could match 1914 for the lowest activity ever recorded, with Hurricane Arthur ending up as our only named storm? I think that is highly unlikely, even though the atmospheric and oceanic conditions in the Atlantic are looking hostile for development for the coming two weeks.

Warmest Days of the Year for the U.S.

By Christopher C. Burt
July 9, 2014

NOAA recently produced an interesting map showing when the hottest day of the year is likely to occur in the contiguous U.S. Complimenting this map is one produced by Brian Brettschneider of Borealis Scientific, LLC, which illustrates the date of summer’s midpoint (peak of summer average temperatures) which was reproduced in my blog posted last August. Brian has also produced maps of such for the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons. There is also some other great material from Brian herein.

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.
