Hurricane-Like Storm Aims for Pennsylvania to Maine Thursday, Friday
Accuweather.com ^ | 2/23/2010

Posted on 02/23/2010 5:47:31 PM PST by rdl6989

A powerful storm of historical proportions is aiming at much of the Northeast Thursday into Friday and will follow up to a foot and a half of snow through Wednesday over upstate New York and western New England.

This second storm will be nothing short of a monster. Even in light of the blizzards earlier this winter that targeted the southern mid-Atlantic, this may be the one that people remember the most this winter in parts of New England and the northern mid-Atlantic.

At its peak, the storm will deliver near hurricane-force wind gusts (74 mph) blinding snow falling at the rate of over an inch per hour. For some people in upstate New York and eastern and northern Pennsylvania, this may seem more like a "snow hurricane" rather than a blizzard.

Cities likely to be impacted by heavy snow for all or at least part of the storm include: New York City, Albany, Rochester, Syracuse, Binghamton, Scranton, Allentown, Reading, Williamsport and Burlington.

Sounds like the Ash Wednesday storm of 1962 that changed the shape of New Jersey’s barrier islands.

Problem is the wind knocking out power lines. Tough to turn on the furnace if the electric controls has no juice. Homes with fireplaces, stock up on wood, otherwise make plans for alternative shelter or sleeping in the kitchen with the stove on for limited heating.

I think I am going to remember the 33 inches I got during the first blizzard or the 15 inches I got several days later. It will take more than one and a half feet to be the biggest. The wind does look bad though.

“At its peak, the storm will deliver near hurricane-force wind gusts (74 mph) blinding snow falling at the rate of over an inch per hour.”

74 mph? Ooooh, and one inch an hour. That’s a snowstorm; but it’s not worth all the drama.

They’d probably cancel school here if that went on for eight to twelve hours without stop. Some folks would stay home from work—especially if there was whiteout. There would be more accidents. Snow shoveling would be more work than normal. But noone would write hysterical articles in the paper. Two days later, everything is back to normal. Easterners seem to have to make everything “historic.”

I don’t understand why the graphic shows Philadelphia in the “Blizzard” area but the text does not list Philadelphia as one of the cities to be affected.

Yeah! Buffalo isn’t on the list!! I think almost every large city east of us has had more snow in the last 4 weeks than Buffalo all winter! I do realize things can change and we could get pounded. Wind - fickle thing!

From what I saw on the videos, Phily is a very tough call. Could be either a couple of inches or a couple of feet.

Some are comparing this to the 1914 Billy Sunday snowstorm. Not many people alive remember that one.

Billy Sunday Snowstorm March 1, 1914

The near Hurricane force winds probably did that. Will have to wait and see how this one winds up. Will pick up some power off the southeast coast where some of the the Gulf Stream heat is still flowing, but up along the northeast coast, still got winter time water temps.

Here is a snowfall total map for the Beast. FYI - This winter every day before the storm hits, they usually increase the projected totals. We will probably see some >24 inch areas by Thursday morning. Basically a cold Arctic system coming down the Midwest will turn and combine with the Low that will turn and ride up the Jet Stream and come up out of the Florida Gulf Stream. There are also a couple of southern storms next week that are going bring some crazy type snow to the deep south. Snow in Florida again in March ?

The weather guy last night referred to the “commercial weather” predicter and felt they were blowing this up bigger than necessary. “Yes, there will be lots of snow, but a blizzard??” I’m sure the grocery store shelves will be sparsely stocked by the end of today.

They have been watching this since the middle of last week. Models were showing the storm and then not showing it. Only began headlining it when the models locked it in. Now if it does not show, it is the models fault. The guys saying it wont blow up, do not believe the models. They use the same service. Models get more accurate when the storm gets closer. At any rate, don't know why them being commercial would affect anything. Ask the AGW government crowd if global warming will be a problem, and you will see how the non-commercial crowd can hype just as bad, if not worse.

I wonder if I will see anything, e.g. top of cars or light duty trucks for instance, other then a huge white blanket that will be almost impossible to dig out of. Let alone be able to navigate on narrow city streets that seldom get plowed.

If you are in the area of this supposed blizzzzzzzard, I suggest the following from our recent experience:

Beer
Potato Chips
Soup
Beer
Coffee
Stove (to heat the soup, and make the coffee on if the power goes out).
Liquor (medicinal purposes).
Beer
Assorted canned meat products
Beer
And of course, beer.

Have a real nice blizzard, and stay in touch.

Amazing radar right now. Moisture from the Texas Low is wrapping up into the Upper Arctic Low. The original first system is also still playing around. It dropped up to 2 feet in one spot.
