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.

Oh no, more global warming.
Sounds like the Ash Wednesday storm of 1962 that changed the shape of New Jersey’s barrier islands.
Al Gore has tortured us all enough for one winter.
I believe I heard some global warming nut on Cavuto this afternoon state this was the warmest January in history or something.
Ugh, I even did a search and nothing came up.
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 turned the channel after a few minutes.
I went back to work! I dearly love Cavuto- I just wasn’t up for listening to the BS.
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.
lol.....great graphic...now just needs a Cantore commentary.
this was the warmest January in history or something............................ yeah, probably in Paraguay??
