Latest On Snowstorm, Great Lakes Ice, Chilly Spring/Summer Outlook!

Written by on March 26, 2014 in United States of America with 0 Comments

Little change in overall thinking of the storm although we’ve seen some fairly impressive Mid-Atlantic including DC snowfall today. This thing is set to go to town as the low is up off Long Island and will be a major wind make offshore with hurricane-force gusts and seas will likely build to between 20 and 50 feet. Offshore that is!

ECMWF surface chart for 12z tomorrow. Most of the action still looks to stay well offshore but Cape Cod is sure to get hammered…

Will have more coverage of the storm in tomorrow’s post as it’s peaking but tonight I want to look at the Great Lakes ice.

Currently 77.4%. Impressive for the end of March. What’s even more impressive is the INCREASE in Lake Superior ice from 90% a few days ago to nearly 92% today thanks to the current cold. Quite amazing considering that 92% is only 3% off the record.


Here’s close-up of Superior.


Here’s a glance at the latest CFSv2 temps for the upcoming months. No real change though I’m seeing it trying to build heat into the TN Valley this summer but it’s largely cool in the east with the focus as expected being over and around the Great Lakes.











Will have more including a video tomorrow…
