WeatherBug Meteorologists to Provide Expert Storm Coverage as Second Major Nor`easter Snow Storm Hits Mid-Atlantic
SENIOR WEATHERBUG METEOROLOGISTS ARE AVAILABLE TO PROVIDE EXPERT STORM COVERAGE AS ANOTHER MAJOR EAST COAST SNOW STORM HEADS TO THE MID-ATLANTIC ON WEDNESDAY
INFORMATION AND VIEWS AVAILABLE ON LIVE CONDITIONS FROM 2,240 WEATHER STATIONS AND 425 CAMERAS ALONG MAJOR PATH OF THE STORM
The WeatherBug Met Ops Desk is actively tracking the path of yet another major nor`easter heading to the Mid-Atlantic on Wednesday and heading up the coast to New York and southern and eastern New England.Meteorologists are available to provide the media with commentary and information on the storm development; current conditions; expert analysis and recommendations for public safety preparations from the potentially devastating effects of the storms.
According to Senior WeatherBug Meteorologist, James West, this new winter storm is starting to take shape over the Central Plains, where two separate systems, one over Texas and another over the Upper Mississippi Valley, are producing widespread light to moderate snow over the Central Plains and rain over Texas and lower Mississippi Valley. These storms will combine late Tuesday as they roar across the Ohio Valley. Early Wednesday, in a classic set-up, the energy from this system will jump to the Carolina Coast, and a powerful, textbook nor`easter will form.
There will be a wide range of snowfall accumulations with this storm, with bands of 10 to 20 inches possible along the I-95 corridor from near Washington, D.C., all of the way into the southern New York City metropolitan area. This will cause major travel headaches and likely be a step back for the progress made from digging out from the weekend storm.
From New York through Boston, all locations could see 6 to 12 inches from the nor`easter as it roars up the coast. The strengthening of the nor`easter on Wednesday will produce winds that could gust between 35 and 50 mph along the coast from the Delmarva Peninsula northward into southern New England. This, combined with the snow, could knock out power and cause significant coastal damage from flooding.
