Brace for round two: Powerful nor'easter
UK Daily Mail ^ | 11/2/12 | Michael Zennie

Posted on 11/02/2012 9:54:58 AM PDT by Kartographer

A powerful new storm system is preparing to batter the East Coast next week, even as millions are still reeling from the devastation left by Superstorm Sandy. The nor’easter storm will bring snow and strong winter winds beginning Tuesday, Election Day, until Thursday. Most of the severe weather will hit northern New England – hundreds of miles north of where Sandy made landfall.

Maybe ...... this guy was right on Sandy (track & timing) so his forecasting is worth reading.

If that storm does decide to track up the coast close to the NYC metro area? It won’t have to be another Sandy to cause damage right along the shore. Not only is the soil saturated from all of the floodwater and rain, the sand dunes along the beaches are gone. There’s nothing to stop more coastal flooding along Long Island and the Jersey shore from even a relatively mild nor’easter.

Northern New England? Romney's hoping to pick up 5 EV’s from that region...4 from NH and 1 from ME (northern Maine,in fact...one of its 2 Congressional districts)

Hmmmm ... I'm in Maine right now but have already voted. Need to look into this because the article says the storm 'forms off the coast of NC, GA on TUESDAY ... ' ... so it would seem that for it to affect NY/NJ, it must be a large system, or it would effect until later in the evening. (both hurting and helping R's - more help than hurt though.)

Food for R's during the day, but R's vote at night, so not as good.

Does anyone have projections of times it would hit NY/NJ and northern New England - i.e. New Hampshire and Maine?

ANY bad weather in NH and ME benefits Romney's 5 EV's. But again - if it's forming off NC and GA on Tuesday - I don't think we're looking at Northern New England being affected during election hours.

Any more research out there? (maybe while I was writing this ... someone posted - if not, I'll go look ...)

Doesn't seem like it's time to expect this, but certainly worth watching ...

Excerpted from XRisk W http://www.wxrisk.com/ per MissMagnolia:

I am not as comfortable in forecasting a big East Coast storm as other for NOV 6-7-8 . Most of the forecasters yesterday who were talking about potential for East Coast storm were focused on the event happening November 6 -7. That struck me as being too soon because the pattern over both Western Canada and southeastern Canada was NOT very favorable for the East Coast storm to develop … though there is better chance for an east coast storm for NOV 7-8

Basically there are two pieces of energy which we have to watch for next week. These two pieces of energy in the jet stream– which in the weather business is refer to as SHORT WAVE — could met and if they do …. IF…. then the potential increases for significant East Coast autumn storm.

The southern piece of energy or the southern shortwave is going to move drop south from Nebraska and Kansas into Arkansas and Louisiana on November 6. The northern piece of energy is coming in from Western Canada and will be located over Manitoba. In order to get the big East Coast storm this northern piece of energy over Manitoba has to drop south eastward through the Ohio Valley and merge or phase with the southern piece of energy coming up from Louisiana and the gulf coast.

The only worse weather will be when Obama loses and all the folks voting for him will be out in the streets burning down each others’ place of residence.

I can verify what you said - my brother lives up there not far from the shore, and his sump pump is running pretty much constantly to keep his basement dry (though he'll be out of gas for the generator that powers it sometime next week without replenishment). I told him about the AL electric crew that was refused when they offered help for Seaside Heights (not far from him), and he said that there isn't much left of the shore area at all. He said there are sand dunes hundreds of yards past where the beach used to be, and that all of the buildings have been wiped away. Another storm this soon afterwards will be a coup-de-grace.

I'm trying to convince my mother to leave, to stay with us in TX, because the whole area is being set up for a massive epidemic. Feces- and dead animal-laden water everywhere, extremely high stress, all stores closed (if not destroyed), little to no gas available for generators or travel out of the area, medical personnel unable to get to their offices and hospitals, and the local utility is apparently running out of fuel for its generators, so we may get a winter storm and not have natural gas being pumped to homes for heat. Marvelous. :>(

Well us white guys have skis which makes a snow storm on election day (dare I say it?)a white out. Jesse will be complaining no polls for blacks to push themselves to the precinct is discriminatory. Looks like it's all downhill for Obama now.

Looks like a bad start to winter.

Six feet of snow in West Virginia

“It’s the fastest (snowfall) I’ve ever seen,” Coleman said.

You might be hearing that a lot this winter.

Ping to #23 .....

Also, at the very end of forecast:

"If you have friends or family on the coast of Maryland New Jersey Connecticut New York City or Long Island and they did not have power and or the homes are damaged and their near the coast... I would recommend that you contact them and convey information to them about the threat from the system so that if they need to pull out they can.There is still a fairly good chance that the system a slight further to the east or made on develop a strong as the European model is showing. But it is ALWAYS better to be prepared than not as some folks have found out the hard way."

I'm just whistling Dixie.

They sent the Alabama utilitity crews home because of union thugs...then, everyone apologized (to each other) and said it was only a misunderstanding. (Ahem) The Alabama crews didn't go back though.
