First Measurable Snow Arrives In Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, -36 In Minnesota

Written by on January 17, 2016 in United States of America, Winter 2015/16 with 0 Comments

The storm which brought rough weather and destructive and even deadly tornadoes to Florida yesterday is bringing snow up the East Coast and for me anyway, a surprise patchy light covering for DC up into Philly. Both BWI and DCA airports in Washington recorded their first measurable snow of the season.

Even the beaches turned white for the first time this winter.

It’s going to be a cold upcoming 48 hours for the Northeast with sub zero wind chills likely to reach DC.

I believe tomorrow is the first day stuck in the 20s from DC to NYC.

GFS surface shows the arctic air a little further east and enough to bring frozen precip on the coastal lows western flank.

Core of cold slides into the Ohio Valley tomorrow with one more bone-chilling night for Minneapolis where we could see another -14 or -15 Mon AM, possibly -8 in Chicago and then a run at the first single digits for Philly, NYC and Boston Tue AM.

Looks like a more significant snow event is shaping up late week into next weekend for the Big Cities of the I-95.

Unable to do a video tonight but promise to have one tomorrow morning!
