'Snow Hurricane' Hits East Coast with Blizzard, Rain, High Winds
ABC News ^ | February 25, 2010

Posted on 02/25/2010 7:52:41 PM PST by campaignPete R-CT

No! Please! Enough already! This winter stinks. We need a break! The massive storm brings a triple threat of rain, snow and wind.

The eastern United States, already having a rough winter after a string of mild ones, has been warned to be ready for another storm -- and just where it will have the most effect is proving maddeningly difficult for forecasters to predict.

A low-pressure system is slowly heading up the East Coast, mixing with another from the west. It is right on a boundary line for meteorologists. On one side is moist but relatively mild air from the Atlantic. On the other is colder air from the northwest.

The boundary line naturally wanders. A shift of just a few miles could determine whether you get flooding rains -- or a foot or more of snow. ...

John Koch, a forecaster at the National Weather Service in Bohemia, N.Y ... "This is not in the official forecast, but I could see a scenario where people just west of New York get a foot and a half of snow, and Greenwich, Conn. -- just five to seven miles away -- could get an inch. It's that close."

For inland areas, heavy snow was all but guaranteed. The forecast for Philadelphia, as of Thursday morning, was for 8-12 inches of snow through Friday. AccuWeather, the private forecasting service, posted a map with the words "paralyzing blizzard" over most of New York state, northern Pennsylvania and northern New England.

"It's going to be a high-impact event that affects the entire Northeast region," said Koch. "Even areas that don't receive a lot of snow are going to receive one to two inches of rain.

"The slightest change in track will have drastic consequences on the forecast," said a weather service statement.

Storm after storm hitting the east coast for the past month .... and I'm sitting here with nothing but bare ground in my back yard (central Conn.). No snow on the ground.

How many inches of snow in your yard?

The global warmers are having a really rough year this year. The “experts” will probably label this the warmest blizzard on record. They are really losing it.

Coming down very heavy here in Morris County, NJ . . . about 4+ inches on the ground, and it only started really sticking to the pavement a couple of hours ago.

16 inches from the first storm.

18 inches from the second.

2 inches from this one. So far.

And it’s windy as heck. Worse wind than the first two.

We’ll see what it looks like tomorrow, but I’m with you.

I’m ready for spring!!!

Another cool-snap on its way down here in S.Florida, about 10 degrees cooler than normal this weekend. It’s been a cool winter.

I’m more concerned with the winds they’re predicting. God, I can’t take another week without power.

Our snow is still about 8 inches in the yard.

Lots of snow on the mountains surrounding Pocatello. Lots still piled on the lawn. Otherwise, the streets are dry. Current temp is +31F. It will be nice when the sand is swept off the streets. It is a hazard on 2 wheels. We had misty snow showers in the morning. Just enough to make the pavement look wet.

The view from my window now reveals about eight inches of very wet, heavy snow here in Amawalk, NY, just west of the reservoir in northern Westchester County. The snow will probably be too heavy to clear with the snow blower tomorrow. Old fashioned aerobics after breakfast!

Proof, specific and conclusive of global warming....let’s have the climate conference on the warmest climatological day of the year and turn the AC off....let’s make longterm glacial melting claims in northern India based on a single phone call from some commie guru, let’s put all our new temperature sensors as close to large paved areas as we can and while were at it our co2 sensors downwind of conventional power plants...let’s say warming causes cooling, more hurricanes , less hurricanes, more snow , less snow... let’s tell everyone they are going to have to lower their standard of living while we fly around in private jets with 500 times the carbon footprint of the average American...and finally boys let’s do this with a straight face.....my head is going to frekin explode!

Interesting radar image of storm shows what resembles an ‘eye’ coming onshore in Massachusetts; north of Boston near Lowell. Rain has let up, but winds are really howling...near 60 MPH in gusts. Power blinking...has gone out in many areas.

We’ve had about 12” of heavy wet snow today in the western mountains of New Hampshire. Winds are gusting to 50+, and the power is out. We’ve got about 2.5 feet of snow on the ground.

Some are giving reports without mentioning their state .... and remember LIBERALS lurk on this sight and they don’t know that Pocatello is really in Idaho.

Is there really such a place as Idaho?

Gore is just another example of someone educated WAY beyond his intelligence.

He couldn’t find his rearend with both hands, a flashlight and a roadmap.

And to think he was the vice president.

WOW.

I’m enjoying the plight of some of the TV weatherpeople in Philadelphia today - after predicting some really amazing potentials for the storm yesterday - like that it was going to make a double loop around Philly before dying out and to drop about eighteen inches of snow on the city, they had to explain why they were lowering their predictions to only about ten inches today when there was hardly any snow sticking - they came up with the explanation that yesterday’s predictions were for total snowfall, but today they were giving the “shovelable” totals, the amounts which would actually have to be removed - sounds like the kind of lame rationalizations ‘rats usually come up with.....

only one inch on the ground now in Conn. One of you guys reported 2.5 feet on the ground and the other nothing.

I am guessing you both got hammered today.

No. Nothing on the ground at all...which leads me to the latest media deception, courtesy of ABC news. My wife was clicking around with her remote, and stopped when she saw the storm coverage...she wanted to see if they had anything different from what she had seen on TWC. While showing copious amounts of snow; they flashed text on the screen indicating that there were "300,000 without power in New Hampshire". Taken in the context of the visuals; you would be led to believe that heavy wet snow had taken down the power lines. BZZZZT! Wrong. The widespread power outages were caused by WINDS in excess of sixty to seventy miles per hour...no snow at all, just heavy rain. Collapsing trees took down power lines, not snow...just goes to show how the media can make you believe something when the facts state otherwise...the damage New Hampshire endured was more akin to a minimal hurricane rather than a snowstorm.

I should clarify...higher elevations in NH, especially north and west, DID get socked with snow. Most outages statewide were the result of high winds, though...NECN out of Boston ran some intense footage of homes and vehicles demolished by fallen trees around southern NH.
