SNOWSTORM SLAMS THE MID-ATLANTIC AND NORTHEASTERN STATES… BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED IN PARTS OF THE NORTHEAST… STORM MOVES AWAY ON MONDAY

Note that I’m posting from Northern N.J….  A rapidly intensifying low pressure system will bring a major snowstorm to many areas from the Carolinas to New England. Blizzard conditions are expected from the Mid Atlantic states northeast into New England later Sunday into Monday. Snowfall amounts upwards of two feet are possible in areas where banding occurs. Even thunder is possible. In Hampton roads, snowfall amounts are expected to be around 6 to 8 inches. Snow will be falling at rates of around 1 to 2 inches per hour in many areas. Winds will be very strong and in the hardest hit areas of the Northern Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern States possibly gusting to 60 MPH. One issue will be where an rain or sleet mix in. That could hold accumulations down in the southern and eastern regions closer to the water and the storm. The storm will wind down from SW to NE on Monday. The barometric pressure of this storm is expected to be similar to a hurricane. Monitor you local media and be safe. Stay off the roads during the height of the storm to allow the snow removal crews to do their job.
