More Snow to Smack DC, Philly, NYC and Boston

Some locations may even experience thunder and lightning with the last batch of snow from the storm

Even though snow tapered off or changed to rain in parts of the Northeast Thursday afternoon, more snow is coming from the nor'easter.

Some locations may even experience thunder and lightning with the last batch of snow from the storm.

A storm that brought heavy ice and snow to the interior South at midweek wasted no time clobbering the Northeast on Thursday with heavy snow, wintry mix, gusty winds and disruptions to travel and daily activities.

A push of warmer air from the ocean changed snow to rain along part of the I-95 corridor Thursday morning. A push of dry air from the south managed to shut down snow, ice and rain for a time Thursday afternoon. However, more snow is forecast to pivot across the I-95 mid-Atlantic Thursday night.

Storm

The snow will roll from southwest to northeast, bringing an accumulation of a couple of inches to some coastal areas, but perhaps as much as a fresh 6 inches of so to areas north and west of I-95.

The snow can cover up roads and sidewalks that had been cleared off Thursday afternoon.

Meanwhile, heavy snow will continue to push northward into eastern upstate New York and New England, where the bulk of the storm is yet to come Thursday night.

Thousands of flight delays and cancellations occurred well away from the storm, due to aircraft and crews being displaced at southern hubs on Wednesday. These delays and cancelations continued Thursday. More than 5,600 flights were canceled into or out of the United States Thursday with at least 1,100 other flights delayed.

The storm has delivered up to about 18 inches of snow on parts of the central Appalachians and interior mid-Atlantic thus far. Philadelphia now has at least a top-five winter in terms of snowfall.

With the snow that has already fallen and the additional snow coming Thursday night, travel will remain difficult and dangerous in many areas of the Northeast.

Storm

According to Senior Meteorologist Henry Margusity, "In some areas from parts of Virginia northeastward to New England, it may seem like a blizzard at times."

As the storm strengthens into Thursday night, enough onshore wind may be generated to cause minor flooding at times of high tide from the Delmarva Peninsula to Maine.

The highest astronomical tides typically occur a day or so before the full moon, which happens to be on Friday, Valentine's Day. Water levels are likely to run about 2 feet above published levels from New Jersey on to the north.

There is the possibility of the power being knocked out in some of the same communities that were hit a week earlier.

Friday Saturday Storm

For folks looking for a break in the cold, wintry pattern, a change to warmer weather is possible beginning around Feb. 17 or 18 and may continue through much of the rest of the month. The amount of flooding, if any, will depend on how quickly snow melts over the region and whether or not heavy rain accompanies the thaw.

Prior to the warmup next week, another storm with snow will swing from the Central states on Friday to the mid-Atlantic and New England coast by Saturday.

That storm could strengthen rapidly near Cape Cod, Mass., and could bring near-blizzard conditions to part of southeastern New England and the Maritimes.

Good Morning Everyone! Hope you are well!
This winter is amazing and "snow" is not the
new four letter word to me as some politician has
suggested, thinking it to be cute. For me,,,SNOW
means Get.....Saved.....NOW! Please Stop Worrying.
This is a period of testing for everyone affected.
The mind has different compartments and many of
the doors to the mind have been closed or locked tight!
Now is the time to open and enter those rooms in your mind
in your heart and think and feel differently. Do Not Curse God
in your heart because of this weather! And you really should
refrain from complaining...Do Not Complain and Do Not Be
Jealous or Envious of anyone living in a warmer climate or
seemingly enjoying a life of ease and comfort. Today Is Your Day!
This weather is demanding that we reassess life. Remember do
not blame God. That would send off very NEGATIVE Energy and would
not be in your favor at all. For those who insist on not Believing in God
and prefer to believe in man or self...Well, you'll find out the Truth
hopefully before too late.....Again, open up the doors to your heart and
mind, to a different perspective from that you have been conditioned with...
Look inside your self...You can even find Him there.....And let the tremendous
Snow Fall Be a Blessing to you! Sending Love! Harold!

Calling Al Gore...
Hmmm, this doesn't look good for 'global warming,' more like global cooling. Wait! I've got it! Let's call it 'climate change!' Yeah! That should cover all our bases! ^5

I think its just another example of Mother Nature making a fool out of humankind. We humans go about our daily lives not caring about our planet and the furture of our children. The younger generation with there faces planted inside the latest personal electronic device. More concerned about how they appear to each other then about whats real. All of this weather is just a result of the Earth telling us its in charge. We are such a small part of a vast universe full of surprises.

All very familiar winter scene as I used to live in Montreal where winter lasts from October to April. And the annual snow fall was 120 inches at least, sometimes 180 inches. But the people and the city know what to do. Can't let every passing blizzard shut down the city. None of the amateur stuff that shuts down so many states.
First of all, everyone has snowtires and winterize their car or store their car for the winter.
Then, everyone knows how to drive in the snow and ice. And everyone has de-icer and survival kit in the car.
Third, as soon as the snow begins to build up, the snow moving caravan came. No, not just one snowblower but a whole convoy. The warning car came with sirens to announce the caravan so everyone can get out of the way. Then the catapillars came to clean the sidewalks. Then the slowblowers came to clean the streets blowing snow into the truck that follows it. As soon as the truck is full, it peels off to dump the snow at one of the designated places and the next truck moves up to catch the snow. After the convoy, the salt truck came to spray the sidewalks and the streets.
That's how you live and function in the cold north of snow and ice.
That's why I now live in S. Cal.
