A Mix of Winter and Spring across U.S: Snow, Flooding, Severe Storms

Heavy Rain and Severe Weather Risk on Track for the Southeast U.S. Heavy, Wet Snow Risk on Track for the Interior Northeast. Another Major Winter Storm and Severe Weather Threat Next Week

Interior New England Getting Pounded – and Buried

A fast-moving low pressure area will move from coastal New England through the Canadian Maritime Provinces producing a good chance of locally heavy snow. Falling snow will increase in coverage and intensity over central New England late this morning, spreading quickly northeast across the Canadian Maritime this afternoon through Saturday morning.

Heavy Snow Moving Into Central Plains

Another significant winter weather event is under way and will dive south and east across the Rockies, Plains, and portions of the Mississippi River Valley through the middle of the week. This will bring an increased risk of moderate-to-heavy accumulations of snow, some mixed wintry precipitation to the south, and gusty winds associated with the strong low pressure center.

Yet Another Winter Storm…But a Warm Up on the Way?

Snow is falling across the Northern Rockies this morning as I’m writing this and it looks to increase in coverage and intensity as we head into the afternoon/evening hours. Snow will spread from the Northern Rockies of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and northwestern Colorado south and eastward into the High Plains of Wyoming, northeastern Colorado, western […]

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).

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 […]

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.
