D.C. To Boston Blizzard… just wow!

Snow rates last night across New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and parts of Massachusetts exceeded 4 inches per hour. The picture above shows you what the results are following 5 hours of sustained heavy snow. A general 10-18 inches fell in the hardest hit areas only to add more weight to a snow pack that has built up from previous storms. This has really been an incredible scene across the region as schools, companies and traffic comes to a standstill once again in this record setting month. Already this January has officially become the snowiest month all time for parts of the NYC metro all the way up to Hartford, Providence and Boston. And with the way this winter has gone, I already have a snow map for the next system that is headed our direction. The totals are much lower, don’t worry, but I don’t think anyone in the Northeast needs another flake of snow:

A clipper system Saturday will drop another potentially shovel-able snowfall Friday-Saturday, and we are already monitoring the potential for another major east coast snowstorm on Tuesday-Wednesday of next week. This pattern just doesn’t want to quit, a recipe for major flooding issues when spring finally decides to set in. Until then…
