Today will feature the beginning of our major winter storm/blizzard set to slam the region tonight into tomorrow morning. Look for cold and cloudy conditions this morning to give way to snow by around noon. SW coastal areas will see light ocean effect before then and it may take until the early afternoon for NE sections to get into the snow. Snow will quickly become moderate to heavy as we get into the evening hours. Strong WAA forcing will result in bands of heavy snow before the real storm even develops offshore. We’ll have to wait until the early morning hours tomorrow for the real show to get on the road as the coastal low bombs out offshore.
I’ll have updated analysis and forecasts for the blizzard this afternoon as more observations come in. Until then, check out my post from last night for all the details.
