|Current Warning - Blizzard and Winter Storm Warnings cover the NE|
Here is why we (big we) should see a Nor'easter of possible record breaking proportions. Satellite above, and radar below explain best - show two systems moving towards the same spot. Low pressure now off of VA/Delmarva (brought us rain) will deepen / strengthen rapidly as the northern stream low across the Great Lakes "catches up" / transfers more energy towards the coast, causing cyclogenesis. "Bombing Out" is the colloquial term.
This will happen off the coast of NY/NJ later today/tonight. Once intensified, some areas will see snow fall at rates of 3-4" PER HOUR. At the bottom are a few weather models showing this "bombing" and hurricane strength low pressure system (but not).
