Low Pressure Bombing Off New England Coast

December 29, 2012 1 comment

A storm system currently centered over Pennsylvania is giving way and transferring it’s energy to a developing low off the Mid-Atlantic coast.

This low-pressure system is going to eventually “bomb out” off the New England coast near the Gulf of Maine this evening. “Bombing out” or “bombogenesis” is a term meteorologists use to describe when a low-pressure system rapidly intensifies.

Sea level pressure may fall as much as 24 millibars in a 12-hour period creating a very tight pressure gradient. This will result in strong winds along the northeast coast from Massachusetts to Maine tonight.

There will also be an area of heavy snow along and inland from the coast. Significant snow will fall  north and east of West Haven, Connecticut to Newport and Providence, Rhode Island, to the south and east of Worcester, Massachusetts to Boston, and along the entire coasts of New Hampshire and Maine. Total accumulations of 6-12 inches are likely in these areas by the time the storm is over.

Some light snow is even expected to fall in the New York City area where a couple of inches may accumulate.

Major Snowstorm For Buffalo To Start Wednesday Evening

December 23, 2012 Leave a comment

Buffalo and the entire Western New York area are poised to receive their first major snowstorm this winter season.

Snow is likely to start Wednesday, December 26, during the afternoon and continue through Thursday morning, December 27.

Total snowfall accumulations may reach 6 inches or more for the entire area by Thursday morning.

The snow may become heavy Wednesday evening and continue during the night. Winds may also become strong Wednesday night as well, with gusts up to 25 mph. Temperatures will remain between 28°F and 32°F throughout this storm, so this system will not have bitter cold temperatures.

The main problem will be heavy snow Wednesday evening and into the early morning hours on Thursday which will make travel very difficult.

Here are a few plots from the GFS 6-hour precipitation accumulation forecast model for Wednesday at 1pm through 1am Thursday that highlights the significant snow that may fall during that time.

A Winter Storm Watch has been issued by the National Weather Service in Buffalo, NY for the potential of 8-15 inches of snow.
