Another Historically Cold February On Tap — Starting Now

Snow, ice, wind, cold, prolonged cold. It’s all in the near future for many areas not used to seeing such weather extremes.

American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting Wrap-Up: What’s New in Weather?

Yesterday was the last day of the 91st Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society in Seattle. ImpactWeather’s Director of Operations Kevin Smith and Bob Weinzapfel, Project Manager, Technical Support Lead and Meteorologist, have been at the meeting all week and, according to them, it’s been not only a busy week but also a productive […]

Cold on the Move, Lots of Questions

There are still lots of questions about what will happen when next week’s Arctic air mass pushes south across the Plains (when, how cold, where). And because substantial overrunning of warm, humid Gulf air is expected, additional questions muddy the situation (rain, snow, freezing rain, when, where).

Snow Gone (Well…); Freeze On Deck.

Let’s talk about the South, where it’s about to get cold. Real cold. We first mentioned this a few days ago, but confidence was low as the event was still quite some time away. Although we’re still talking about next week, our forecast confidence is increasing and more computer models are starting to hint at the outbreak.

One Snowy January…But We Warned You!

As I’m writing this, the snow is tapering off across New England and will continue to do so into the afternoon. The strong low pressure system, responsible for all the snow, will continue to move northeast of the area bringing snow/blowing snow today across Newfoundland Island. The past several days we’ve been bringing you updated […]

Snow in the North and Active Tropics in the South

In the Northern Hemisphere we’re in the middle of winter and what a winter it’s been so far!

Widespread accumulations of 3-6” can be expected from the Mid-Atlantic States into the […]

Nor’easter Even Stronger

More snow. And not just more snow but MORE snow. Yesterday’s StormWatch graphics indicated an impressive band of 12+ inches from the New York Tri-State through New England. Today, 18+ inches is indicated across southern New England and perhaps even Long Island (depending on the exact storm track). This morning’s indicators suggest a low pressure […]

Corporate Aviation Helps True American Heroes

“Imagine waking up every day without one or more of your limbs, with severe burns or even being paralyzed. For hundreds of War on Terror wounded veterans these new physical realities will be with them for the rest of their lives.” We’ve mentioned a few times before the incredible achievement resulting from the efforts of […]

Nor’easter: 12-Inch Snow Swath

Yet another nor’easter is taking aim on the Northeast with, yet again, significant snow in the offing. However, some uncertainty remains in the forecast as the low, still in the Gulf of Mexico, may push a bit farther off the East Coast than presently thought.

Nor’easters, Nor’easters, Nor’easters – No End In Sight

Today’s YourWeatherBlog entry deals with today’s nor’easter and the continuing nor’easter threat next week — which will be the fourth nor’easter in about four weeks.
