Huge Nor'easter affecting New England this weekend

#1 Postby northjaxpro » Thu Mar 01, 2018 7:58 pm

A large, and well developed Nor"Easter will bomb just off the U.S. New England coast. It is already a 996 mb Low Pressure area over Eastern Ohio currently. However, the system is forecast to re-develop off the coast of Cape Cod, MA during the next 24 hours.


Storm force winds will ripple through the Great Lakes, New England the next few days. Wind may gust to 65-70 mph in some areas along the coast, especially Friday into early Saturday. Also, coastal flooding, significant rain along the immediate coast, and snow across the interior of New England will occur. This storm is forecast to bomb to potentially as low as 969 mb on latest GFS by 6Z Sunday morning, or possibly sooner. The storm will meander in the region this weekend before it finally pulls away out to sea by late Sunday.

So, any interests.or Storm2K family living in the aforementioned areas being impacted by this big nor'easter, please let us know how the conditions are in the region.

Here is a Google + GIS map that can show a number of different storm related data overlays.

When the map opens it is centered near Boston and the stream gage overlay layer is ‘on’. To see the recorded water level and forecast level, click a gage symbol and then follow the link.

If you click a stream gage right on the coast and follow the link, then you will see the recorded and forecast tide levels.

You can also turn on/off and re-stack data overlay layers that show rain gages, coastal gages, bouys, forecast discussions and more. Don’t know how? Please click “Map tips” in the upper left corner.

It's kind of funny the media is now referring to basically every big nor'easter a bomb cyclone. Someone decided to throw around that word and it's stuck. Bombogenesis imo should be left for the deep sub 950s in the Aleutians and near Iceland :lol:

I think it should be left for things that go BOOM!!!

I don't see that it has a place in weather at all. Kind of tired of the Sandy references too. It's getting almost as worn out as the K references in the Gulf.

The media loves it because it's both a funny sounding word and it contains "bomb", so it instills fear (and thus people will tune in for more information after these messages)

The nor'easter did not "bomb" as deeply as previously forecasted by the models. It bottomed out at 974 mb as of 6Z this morning. The system has been steadily drifting southeast since yesterday afternoon. The worst of the weather ended a bit earlier than expected for New England and that is the good news. However, this storm has nearly 1 million people without power in that region and major coastal flooding in some areas. The system definitely has already begun to generate some amazing surf all down the U.S.East Coast and will continue so for the next several days.
