Powerful winter storm stretching from Midwest to Mid-Atlantic  threatens to reach blizzard conditions

Much below normal temperatures are forecast to continue across the Northern Tier, with heavy snow for portions of the Midwest and Northeast, Thursday and Friday, said the National Weather Service (NWS).

“Very cold temperatures will continue across the Midwest where high pressure continues to linger. Heavy snowfall will be possible today from the Midwest to central New York along a frontal boundary. By tomorrow, several systems will converge toward the Mid-Atlantic resulting in snowfall from northwestern Arkansas to New England, with the heaviest amounts expected from the Appalachians into Maine.”

Blizzard Warning, Winter Storm Warning, High Wind Warning, Storm Warning, Avalanche Warning, Flood Warning, Lake Effect Snow Warning, Gale Warning, Wind Chill Warning, Heavy Freezing Spray Warning, Flood Advisory, Special Weather Statement, Air Quality Alert, Air Stagnation Advisory and Hazardous Weather Outlook are among a plethora of warnings, watches and advisories issued by NWS.

Storm total snowfalls of up to 14 inches is forecast for parts of New York and Massachusetts, according to a Winter Storm Warnings issued for the states.

A complex storm system will raise havoc on the Eastern U.S. late this week

A swath of light snows will continue to develop to the north of a frontal boundary stretched from the Middle Mississippi Valley to the northern Mid-Atlantic states Wednesday evening, while a rich supply of moisture
surrounding a strengthening front in the Gulf of Mexico will continue to fuel an organized axis of rains across Central Gulf coast and Southeast.

On Thursday, these two features will begin to merge as the front stretched from the Middle Mississippi Valley to the northern Mid-Atlantic states pushes east/southeastward as a cold front and a surface low developing along the front in the Gulf lifts northeastward towards northern Florida. The complex interaction of these two systems will raise havoc on the Eastern U.S. late this week.

Accumulating snows are expected across the Ohio Valley, northern Mid-Atlantic states, and northeast, while moderate to heavy rains will push through the Southeast. The bigger story with these merging systems will most likely be the rapidly deepening surface low off the Eastern Seaboard early Friday, which will bring strong winds and bitter temperatures into the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. This deepening low will also have the potential to hit coastal New England with heavy snows before it races into the Canadian Maritimes. Source: WPC/NOAA

Major Blackouts in U.S., Canada as Deadly Storms, Tornadoes Kill 18

Posted by feww on December 24, 2013


Deadly storms pummel northern US, eastern Canada leaving a million homes dark, cold

Deadly storms cut power to about a million homes in the U.S. and Canada, leaving at least 18 people dead, grounding hundreds of flights, delaying thousands more and causing major disruptions to transport networks throughout vast regions.

Ice storm has caused massive outages in the state of Michigan as well as in western and northern NY, leaving more than 2 inches of ice on trees and many roads.

On Monday, up to half a million homes and businesses in Michigan, upstate New York and northern New England and as many in eastern Canada remained without electricity as thick ice continued to fell trees and bring down power lines, according to reports.

Toronto’s Mayor has called the ice storm “one of the worst storms in Toronto history.”

The ice storm also battered New York state, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, forcing New York Governor to declare a winter ice storm emergency on Friday in four counties where were more than 2 inches of ice covered the roads.


The Storm Prediction Center has recorded at least 12 confirmed tornado reports and more than 320 wind reports since Friday, December 20, 2013.
