Northeast Blizzard, Jan. 2015

I know we have a good number of members up in the northeast. Looking through the forecasts, as I'm sure you've heard, a pretty good snowstorm is getting ready to pummel those of you from New Jersey to Maine! Blizzard Warnings are up for a good portion of the coastal region, with winter storm warnings inland.

 

Averaging out the model forecast, and National Weather Service official products, a swath of 15 to 30 inches of snow looks like a good bet from the NYC area northeast through Connecticut, Rhode Island, much of Massachusetts into eastern Maine.

I will still believe it when i see it, at least what they are saying we will get now.  Until this morning this storm was a complete miss for us and now its some big monster.

 

Well, I can't speak to the forecasters up there, but the models have been pretty consistent with the snowfall amounts being in the high category. The area affected has increased somewhat over the last couple of days.

Hmm. Something tells me that as usual we won't really be getting anything down here.

 

But I'd definitely rather have no snow than a freaking blizzard! Good luck to those in the northeast!

It looks like I am in the area near the boundary of a minor inconvenience and a good (but not epic) snow fall. I am glad I am not in central Jersey or points NE of there...

One thing about the weather in the Northeast.. Anything is possible but believe when I see it is true!!!

And even when we see it.... We already saw it before!!!!

Bring it!!!

I'm missing the brunt of the storm in NYC but I'm still in Boston which is supposed to get up to 25 inches of snow. That's on rope of the 6-8 inches we got a day ago.

 

I would say Boston might be in for it more than NYC with this one. Winds likely to be worse in Boston, near Hurricane strength.

In my experience with the two, NYC is much more windy than Boston. NYC's is surrounded by water and in certain parts the buildings just amplify it.

Actually, Boston is the windiest big city (12.4 mph average vs. NYC of 11.1 mph).

 

Buildings definitely do amplify it though.  If you want to feel some wind amplification, just hang out in the back bay by the john hancock tower.  Out by BC, you are likely getting a lot less wind.

 

Also, if you think about Boston, it's also surrounded by water.

I'm in Boston today for work. Im supposed to leave tomorrow but I'm not sure how that's going to work out. Might try to get out tonight but I'm heading back to Jersey which is just as bad.
