The Blizzard of 2015 is just about in the books now and we have a lot of cleaning up to do as some areas picked up around 2 feet of snow and the drifts are incredible. Take it easy as you shovel, do it in stages...oh and make room, there's more snow on the way!
The final flakes will fall this morning but with gusty wind, blowing snow is still an issue. The wind will relax by midday as the storm chugs into Nova Scotia. Skies will brighten from west to east, temps will be cold in the 20s and windchills will be below zero this morning too. Bundle up!
High pressure builds in for Thursday giving us a nice breather and more time to get things in order before our next storm arrives. Energy will slide out of the central Canada and link up with energy from the Rockies...an area of low pressure will be born and arrive in the Northeast first thing Friday morning with another round of snow. However, when the storm hits the Gulf of Maine it will flare up and intensify, likely leading to enhanced snow amounts, turning a few inches of snow into several. In fact, there's potential for over 6 inches and maybe over a foot in spots as the storm stalls a bit and keeps snow flying, in some places, into Saturday morning.
The storm will depart Saturday morning and the rest of the weekend will be sunny but cold. Another storm will threaten us next Monday...ugh.
Have a good day and stay safe.
