Big Nor'easter on Deck for Friday

Written by John DiPasquale:

Quiet & cold through Thursday, but later Thursday night into especially Friday two storms will converge on the Northeast, & quite possibly delivering several inches of wet snow to end the week.  There could be a wintry mix, mainly south of the Thruway late Thursday night into Friday morning, but at this time it looks like this will be a mainly snow event for most.  BIG time snows could very well be experienced across much of New England, especially Eastern New England who could be measuring the snow in feet by Saturday morning!!  Again, here it will not be that bad, but conditions could be quite rough Friday into Friday night with synoptic snows transitioning to lake snows later Friday through the start of Saturday.  We will have updates over the next couple of days, with snowfall numbers sometime Thursday.  Stay tuned snow lovers!  Some real snow looks to be on the way, & COULD get more active later next week & beyond too!  

Have a great night all!

  2. Mike do not count your chickens before they are hatched. John said big in NE not here maybe a few inches. Will be nothing and again have you looked at the forecast for the weekend and early next week? Spring temperatures galore!

  4. Why does John always say something in the line like, "COULD get more active later next week & beyond too! When nothing ever happens. He has said this on more than one post recently.

  5. Since when does 2 days in the 40s count as "spring temps galore?" Show me at least a week in the 50s and higher and then we'll start talking about "spring temps galore." John said it COULD (read: COULD) get more active later next week and beyond because blocking will be setting up which will serve to amplify the storm track and turn it up the coast. The devil remains in the details, but there is good potential in the upcoming pattern.

  6. The Weather Channel just named this New Winter Storm, "NEMO" What is up with naming snow storms?

  7. Let's face it, mixed precipitation is not far away, neither is big snows, or very little snow, depending on track and phasing of the storm, so the forcast should read,
    Snow, with the chance for mixed precipitation. Snow accumulation from 2-24 inches. Will that cover it?

  8. Winter Storm Watches have been issued for four northern tier counties in west central PA, calling for 6-8 inches of snow. With deeper cold air and more moisture up our way I wouldn't be shocked if NWS BUF follows suit this afternoon or late tonight in their 3AM update package.

  9. Good question, why are they naming winter storms now on TWC? It's so weird. And unnecessary. Imagine in the future saying, "wow, that Nemo, now that was a storm".... What's wrong with the Blizzard of '13? Maybe that sounds like something from the early 1900s? Maybe that's why they are naming them but couldn't they think of a better name for a snowstorm than that of an animated Disney fish? Boris works. Boris the Blizzard. I guess all snowstorms should start with a B. Beulah the Blizzard.

    1. I'm just sitting here chuckling all alone like a dope, while imagining a blizzard named Bob the Blizzard. Like Bob the Builder except instead of building houses he builds the spirits of snow lovers nation wide.
