Blizzard to Bury New England at the End of the Week (Unfortunate weather graphic)
Accuweather ^ | February 06, 2013; 3:15 PM | Alex Sosnowski

Posted on 02/06/2013 1:23:57 PM PST by TSgt

Two storms will merge quickly enough to bring colder air, heavy snow and increasing wind to New England. Some areas will be hit with an all-out blizzard and a couple of feet of snow.

The worst of the storm will hit late Friday and Friday night and will wind down Saturday morning. However, lingering effects from blowing and drifting snow, blocked roads and other travel delays are likely to linger into much of the weekend.

Numerous flight delays and cancellations are possible centered on New England, but these problems will be felt elsewhere across the nation.

Strong winds will not only cause white-out conditions but can result in massive drifts.

At the height of the storm, snow can fall at the rate of 2 to 4 inches per hour and may be accompanied by thunder and lightning.

A person traveling northeastward from New York City Friday evening along I-95 would encounter progressively worse and potentially dangerous weather conditions.

With such snowfall intensity, vehicles can become stuck and people can become stranded.

The hardest-hit areas are likely to include Hartford and Providence to Boston, Worcester, Concord, Portsmouth and Portland.

Coastal flooding is another concern with this storm along the coast of eastern Massachusetts. The period of strong northeast winds will be occurring within a couple of days of the new moon and high astronomical tides.

Warm air will play a major role in the storm from New York City, Long Island and central New Jersey on south and west in the mid-Atlantic, resulting in rain during part or all of the storm, depending on location.

Only if the two storms sync up completely would heavy snow wrap around into New York City for an extended period, bringing a foot of the white stuff. Even so, without complete phasing of the storms, New York City and Long Island will get significant snow.

A separate story on the storm's role in New York City and the mid-Atlantic is now available on AccuWeather.com.

Meanwhile, a fresh injection of arctic air will fuel the blizzard over New England. The colder air will cause rain to change to snow on Cape Cod and along the South Coast, as well as cause wet snow to become more dry and powdery with time, making it subject to blowing and drifting in central and southern areas.

In northernmost New England from northern Maine to along the Canada border of New Hampshire, Vermont and northern upstate New New York, too much dry air feeding in from the north may limit snowfall or cut off the storm completely.

Snow from the Alberta Clipper part of the storm will still deliver enough snow to shovel and plow over much of upstate New York.

Big deal...this is just something to give the women in New England something to cluck about...in most areas; the ground is bare, and has been so most of the winter. This storm (OMG, OMG, OMG) will dump some snow; then it will melt. In fact, temperatures are forecast to be ABOVE NORMAL for the remainder of February. This has been a real yawner of a winter (to date) here in Red Hampshire...frankly; I was expecting the ground to split open after the results on Election Day.

You call em storms.

They have referred to a couple of 'two inch snowfalls' here in Red Hampshire as 'storms' over the past few months. Maybe this one will actually BE a storm...

Here in the Mid-Atlantic, it’s milk, bread and toilet paper. We’re fancy that way.

Not liking this coming storm. I’m going to have to switch over the snow plow from my ATV to my son’s ATV Friday morning (which won’t be easy) because four wheel drive in mine is intermittently cutting out then I’m going to have to plow every two hours through the night. It’s going to be a looooong night.

The good part is lots of snow on the ground for burning brush. I’ve got three done and eleven to go.

We’ve already had 9 feet of snow for the season. If we get smacked, we’re set. Have 3 cords of wood for the wood stove, a well that we can bail water out of, food in the larder, a gas stove for cooking and supplemental heat, and best of all, an analog scrabble set. Bring it. Six weeks until the vernal equinox. sd

“You would think it just magically forms just east of the Appalachians.”

Why is it we always hear about their “storms” but never about ours? I live in what they call “fly over” country, so why should I give a damn about their weather all the time? Hell Bells, they announce it on national news every time the weather is less than sunny as though this is the first time the place has ever seen adverse weather.

Those living under a Cape Cod roof in a cottage-style home should weather this storm fine, popping popcorn, watching DVD movies and huddling around the fireplace. Others, maybe not so well.

I’m impressed by the tough colonial New England residents who have been living along the coast for more than 300 years. You people are amazing.

Because liberal utopia's are the most self-loving areas of the country and they run the media. They couldn't care less what happens in other parts of the country.

Not much in the way of perch but there is an occasional walleye taken in the deeper water near the dam. Its shallow, weedy and full of stumps. Lots of blugills, bass, and pike.

.My fridge is stocked and as long as the power stays on things will be OK.
If it’s snowing and the power goes out, I’ll bet you can figure out a way to keep things cool. ;)

/johnny


It’s cold enugh here in Maine this week.

Just put some milk jugs full of water outside. Let them freeze. When you lose power, bring one in at stick it the fridge. When it thaw, replace it and put the thawed one back outside.

This is not our first rodeo.

I lived in SW CT back in 1987 when the last storm of this dimension hit the area, precisely 26 years ago. CT state highways were closed for three days, then state Governor Grasso closed things down statewide for three days as well. Commuter trains were stranded ... bottom line there was no where to go. Nine months later there was a significant uptick in new babies ... so the time at home was not completely lost.

I'm at the bottom of the target area in Watertown Ct. The forecasts were all over the map earlier today. Some were calling for 3 inches and others were calling for 30 inches. I hope it's at the lower end since I'll be out snow blowing my driveway. Stay warm, dry and safe.

Looks like almost the same scenario for Sandy, a storm coming in from out west and a nor’easter coming up the coast at the same time.

That area over TX/LA is prime nor’easter spawning grounds.

Heh, where we are, we get both. The nor’easter smacks us one day, and then when it pulls off the coast, the winds swing around and we get lake effect off Lake Ontario 24-36 hours later.

The NWS here refers to it as the *classic one-two punch*.

When the Blizzard of 93 hit, we got 2-3 feet of snow from that and then another 2-3 feet of lake effect. Syracuse was pounded.

This storm looks to be far enough out to sea that we won’t see it, but they are forecasting 8-12 inches for Friday, which I suspect is from the storm out west. We’ll get the lake effect later anyway.
