Blizzard or Just Cold

To add insult to this bitter cold snap, a major east coast storm will be tracking up the eastern seaboard Thursday with severe wind and heavy snow. Right now Scenario #2 has the storm moving out to sea to our east with little or no impact for us, maybe just wind. Scenario #1 has the storm hugging the east coast with blizzard conditions for New England. Or scenario #3 would be a deepening low straddling between the two tracks shown with a few inches of wind driven snow for several hours. It’s too early to predict which track this potent storm will take but it should be monitored very carefully. No matter what track the storm takes another blast of sustained bitter cold will move back in after the storm passes us with gusty northwest winds that will dive wind chills to frightening lows. Stay tuned.
