2/24/2010: Winter Storm Warning

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the region beginning on Thursday, February 25, 2010 at 12:01 a.m. through Friday, February 26, 2010.

According to the NWS Precipitation is expected to begin later this evening, and could start out as either rain or a mixture of rain and snow. However, precipitation will change over to all snow overnight tonight and last through the early part of Friday. The heaviest snow is expected to be Thursday into Thursday night with total snow accumulations ranging from 8 to 12 inches across the warned area. This is the time when the storm will be at its strongest as well, which will lead to strong winds up to 30 mph. These strong winds will likely lead to blowing and drifting snow, as well as scattered power outages.

The snow could be a heavy, wet snow, similar to the last storm, which may have an effect of trees and building overhangs. Shoveling snow will be difficult with this storm. Anyone venturing out to shovel snow is advised to use caution when shoveling snow and take frequent breaks.

A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow... sleet... and ice are expected or occurring. Strong winds are also possible. This will make travel very hazardous or impossible.

2/10/2010: Blizzard Warning

The National Weather Services is reporting that the blizzard warning remains in effect until midnight tonight.

A coastal storm developing off the central mid Atlantic coast will intensify explosively today. A mixture of rain, sleet, freezing rain, and snow has begun to change to all snow late this morning and will continue this afternoon as the storm moves northward. This will cause winds to back to northeast and north and bring colder air into the region. With heavy snow expected to decrease visibilities, and strong winds gusting to 35 to 45 miles an hour this afternoon, blizzard conditions are expected at times mainly from about midday and through the afternoon, possibly persisting into early tonight before tapering off. However, winds will continue to be strong this evening so there will be plenty of blowing snow with reduced visibilities as well tonight.

Total snow accumulations are expected to range from 12 to 22 inches into early tonight, with the highest amounts straddling the interstate 95 corridors.

Near-blizzard or blizzard conditions are rare for our area, so it is likely that people will not realize the peril that exists in venturing out in such storms. Life-threatening conditions are possible, and driving will be hazardous at best during this winter storm today and early tonight. It is highly recommended that travel be curtailed due to the dangerous conditions, and only drive if it is truly an emergency situation.

A blizzard warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout conditions, making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get stranded, stay with your vehicle.
