Glancing Blow from Storm. Significant Snow Eastern Long Island & CT…



Both the Southern and Northern jet stream will be high energized, this will result in explosive intensification of the coastal low off the Mid-Atlantic coast. Bombogenesis will occur-the birth of a rapidly deepening storm. This storm will move up and off our immediate coast late tonight into Tuesday. The storm looks to take a path just outside the track for a major snowstorm for the entire area. Areas to the East of NYC will not be spared, as the heavier snow shield should work into Eastern Long Island and Connecticut. A Winter Storm warning has been posted for this area for the likelihood of heavy snow. Farther to the West much lighter accumulations are expected with virtually no accumulation in spots. The possible snow amounts are above. Please note a track closer to the coast will result in higher totals farther West- a track farther East Lighter amounts.

Strong wind gusts of 40-45mph are possible along the coast on Tuesday. Minor coastal flooding is possible. Damaging winds of the first Nor’easter ten days ago is not expected.

The storm will pull away on Tuesday with snow lingering to the East of NYC during the afternoon. Some sun is possible.

It will be cold and breezy behind this system into midweek next week with scattered flurries.

Stay tuned.
