What is expected to be an historic Nor'Easter is about to hit New England. More specifically the Boston area. I usually don't write much about weather outside of Ohio, but this storm fascinates me because of how all of the pieces are falling in place for a storm of this magnitude to happen. A lot like Superstorm Sandy, everything had to happen just right for us to have a blizzard of this magnitude.
I wrote in my last post about the potential for this to happen, and everything is holding perfectly true to the computer models from a few days ago.
It's incredible to see the NWS in Boston not even have a snow scale large enough to estimate potential snow totals for that area:
Some computer models are indicating areas of over 3 feet of snow!
Storms like this make me look ahead in hopes that we could be getting something extreme soon, however we're looking above average for temps over the next few days and wet. The next chance for snow could be on Wednesday as a new low pressure system develops off of the tail of Monday's front. It's early, and it's clearly wishful thinking, but this could be our southern low we've been looking for all winter. Only the GFS picks up on this feature right now, but obviously we watch anything that resembles a storm that'll ride up the Appilacians.
Until next week...
