Highest impact will be DC an Mrtha's Vinyard. Good place for it. Maybe DC won't start back until May.

Oh man.. this is almost a spitting reminder with that storm (An El Nino winter as well). I remember I got 0"! and points south got hammered.


Now I might get just 4" while Long Island might get 10 inches!


I'll be updating the thread all day.

One can only hope! Maybe it'll coincide with another global warming summit.

Interesting to know that for future reference. The 2009-2010 winter was a wild one in Virginia as we got 3 Blizzards starting with one in December and then two more Jan/Feb. That was also the year, if I remember right, that a big Derecho storm that knocked down over 20 large old trees in June with straight down tornado force wind in a thunderstorm that exceeded 80 mph. Quite a violent year for storms.

This year has been a much milder winter for us here with only about 33 inches of snow total for the month of January. While we did start burning the woodstoves earlier this year, as the it was colder sooner in the fall, the temperatures were not as cold either as last year.

Good comparison to know for the future- the connection of El Nino and Maine winter , where as in Virginia a strong El Nino winter means bigger storms though less frequent in weather. Knowing the state of Virginia, adding DC MD area well- watching the weather channel in this storm now does further make one understand just how bad it is going to be. We made contact with all family members, and everyone is just hunkered down and prepared... Going to be a wild one !

I saw my first flock of snow buntings yesterday. Thy are late this winter. I estimate 60 to 80 in the flock. They don't hold still so you can count them.

Well, that was quite the historical storm down there. I bet Cambium got over a foot of snow himself!

Was looking at some stories today and what jumped out at me was the number of states affected. These are high snow totals per state ( http://www.weather.com/storms/winter...ports-blizzard ). This was a big storm!:

Here are the top snow and ice totals by state reported as of 2:14 a.m. Sunday, with the highest snow totals listed first:

Mid-Atlantic and Northeast (Friday-Saturday)

West Virginia: 40 inches of snow in Glengary, in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia.
Virginia: 39 inches in Philomont, about 25 miles northwest of Washington, D.C.
Maryland: 38 inches in Redhouse, in western Maryland. Redhouse is 150 miles west of Baltimore.
New York: 30.5 inches at JFK Airport in New York City.
Pennsylvania: 35.5 inches at Somerset, about 25 miles southwest of Altoona.
New Jersey: 29.6 inches at Whitehouse, in Readington Township in the northern part of the state.
Connecticut: 16 inches at Greenwich, near the New York border in far southwestern Connecticut.
Delaware: 15.5 inches at Woodside in Kent County.
Rhode Island: 15.5 inches at Westerly, in the southwestern corner of the state.
Massachusetts: 14.5 inches at West Harwich on Cape Cod.

South and Ohio Valley (Friday-Early Saturday)

Kentucky: 22 inches near Booneville in eastern Kentucky; 12.2 inches of snow and 0.30 inch of ice in Bowling Green; 2 inch per hour snowfall rates in Jackson with a storm total of 16.2 inches
North Carolina: 19 inches near Old Fort. Also 0.65 inches of ice glaze near Selma.
Ohio: 17 inches in Graysville, in southeast Ohio, about 80 miles southwest of Pittsburgh.
Tennessee: 14 inches in Jamestown. Nashville reported thundersnow during the day Friday with a storm total of 8 inches.
Arkansas: 8 inches near Sherwood, Cabot and Jacksonville.
Georgia: 7.5 inches at Dillard in Rabun County of far northeast Georgia.

During the early stages of Jonas' development, snow fell in the Plains states Thursday. Snowfall totals included:

Farmer's Almanac. Unusually it tends to be off about 3 days or so.

JANUARY 2016
24th-27th. Storm hugs coast on its way north; snow initially, then milder air will change precipitation to rain.

Most of the snow at my house in northern MDI is now gone. Now I'll be dodging crap on the lawn again. Hopefully we can get some more this weekend.
