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 information on YourWeatherBlog on this latest nor’easter and what a winter it’s been for those living in the Northeast! With the latest storm totals, this is officially the snowiest January on record for parts of the Northeast/New England. The latest snowfall brought this month’s total accumulation in Central Park to 36 inches! I’m guessing New Yorkers are hoping Punxsutawney Phil doesn’t see his shadow next Wednesday so there won’t be 6 more weeks of winter. My guess is that he will see his shadow and we’ll have to wait until March 20th rolls around for spring to begin!

If you’re an avid reader of YourWeatherBlog (which I hope you are by now) you know that we always bring you the latest weather information, not only here in the U.S. but around the world. The past several weeks we’ve been seeing one nor’easter after another and the latest one is responsible for bringing up to 19 inches of snow to Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.

Here’s the latest storm totals.

It seems like we’ve been posting blog after blog after blog this month covering all the snow across the Northeast so there’s no reason you shouldn’t have been warned! However, next week looks like parts of the Deep South could get another round of winter weather. Confidence is still fairly low for the exact areal extent and accumulations but much of the Deep South and Texas could see snowfall next week as a series of disturbances move across the area and cold Arctic air filters in from the north. Temperatures could be as much as 28ºF below normal across much of the central U.S. I guess I shouldn’t get too used to this 60ºF weather we’ve been having in Houston because it looks like some cold air is heading this way next week. Actually, it looks like there could be a hard freeze across much of the South with a light freeze possible along the coast.
