    Ya - you East coasters are likely in for another round. If you take a look at the National Radar map, a huge windy, messy slow moving system is on top of us now, but headed your way....s-l-o-w-l-y.

    Winds are tremendous here already, though no precip yet. Power has been blinking, and after checking the co-op power outage map, it's only a matter of time.

    According to Accuweather, we are going to get hammered again Weds night thru Thurs with another 8 to 18 inches of snow depending on where you live. And then they say another storm for this coming weekend with yet MORE snow!

    Talk about March coming in like a lion. Sheeeshhhh....

    We can just today see dirt in our driveway and not ice. Sigh.......looks like we gonna be paying the plow guy twice more at least this month.......crap....... I am SO done with winter this year.
    I got the laundry done up and the pantry/fridge/freezer topped off again so, I don't "need" to do any traveling for a bit. Our roads to the main road are muddy right now. Maybe when they plow those it will take off some of that slimey stuff.....

    The East Coast Is Bracing For Another Monster Winter Storm
    Profile picture for user Tyler Durden
    by Tyler Durden
    Mon, 03/05/2018 - 21:20


    Just when you thought it was safe...Ed Vallee, head meteorologist at Vallee Weather Consulting LLC., warns:

    “Another east coast storm is on tap Wednesday into Wednesday, but this one is a bit different than this past event. A powerful storm will push through the middle of the country into Tuesday, while a secondary low-pressure system forms off the Mid Atlantic coast. This storm will be more progressive, limiting the amount of time strong winds and heavy precipitation can be in any one location, unlike the storm last week which moved very slowly off the New England coast.

    As with any coastal storm, there remains some uncertainty in where this system will exactly track, which will ultimately impact where the rain/snow line will set up near the coast and how much snow falls. Regardless, confidence is increasing in a moderate to heavy snow event across the Mid-Atlantic and New England, with some places approaching 1 foot of snowfall. This combined with strong winds, will once again introduce a power outage risk across a region that in some places has yet to restore power from the storm last week."

    Vallee makes the point that winter is not finished with the Northeast just yet.

    According to the National Weather Service, a winter storm watch has been declared for much of the Northeast for the second time in a week, as a new storm is expected to dump snow from New York to Massachusets that are still recovering from last week’s bombogenesis explosion.

    The National Weather Service is now warning of “round 2,” as a winter storm advisory is now in effect for northeast New Jersey, southern Connecticut, and southeast New York, which could see as much as 6 to 9 inches (15 to 23 centimeters) of snow starting late Tuesday night into Wednesday evening.

    This new one won't be as strong as the last one, but it's hitting before the damage from the last one could be remediated. That has the strong potential to make this one far worse subjectively. About like being kicked when your down.

    I doubt the coastal areas can take any more pounding from the waves. Like I said, this new storm is coming right on the heels of the old storm. In many cases, people will get back their power on Tuesday, and then get hammered within 24 to 48 hours. The result will be they are going to lose power a second time.

    I'm not sure if the estimates of six plus inches of snow are accurate. If they are, well that is going to possibly shut down the airports, the trains, the schools etc etc.

    It really is a one, two, three punch situation. This entire region got creamed from Grayson in early January. They just got creamed earlier this week. They will get creamed for a third time within the next 72 hours, plus or minus.

    I doubt many of them have had the chance to make it to the store and restock, or even if the stores have been restocked from the Friday/Saturday storm.

    We shall see, but even if this looming storm isn't as "bad" as the weekend storm, the people have no buffer, for even a lower level of damage. If nothing else, how many have had time to refill their oil tanks since Friday.

    My gut feeling is this may the worst of all three storms because it will do more damage on an already damaged area. Some of the pics I have seen from the coastal areas tell me the houses are already very damaged, so the question is how much more flooding can they take before they are completely destroyed. I think the answer is "not much."

    The best explanation is they are like a person recovering from a cold, who then gets sick with pneumonia or bronchitis.

    They are still forcasting 8 to 20 inches of snow for NH and Maine. Not sure about MA or RI as I haven't seen those total predictions. More concerned about this area. We are about 30 miles east of the NH border. Not looking forward to getting hammered.

    GSM Update 3/8/18 - Thundersnow - Turrialba Lava Fountain - 6 Inches Per Hour - More Coming

    Quinn is kicking the crap out of the area from Virginia to Boston and deep into the Mid Atlantic area.

    Several thousand plane flights cancelled. Amtrack and local public transit seriously impacted. The only good news is the coastal storm surge doesn't seem to be an issue. THUNDERSNOW IN NEW YORK CITY. HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS STILL WITHOUT POWER.

    The link to the 2300 cancelled flights is here.

    2,373 Flights Have Already Been Canceled As Winter Storm Quinn Hits the East Coast


    Melanie Lieberman March 07, 2018

    The second nor’easter in less than a week, dubbed Winter Storm Quinn, is churning along the East Coast right now, bringing with it a mix of heavy snow and rain, and strong winds. And for the second week in a row, the severe winter weather is impeding travel plans all along the eastern corridor.

    According to the most recent tally of flight cancellations from the live flight tracking website FlightAware, at least 2,373 flights have already been canceled today. Conditions are expected to deteriorate throughout the day and into Thursday morning, meaning more cancellations and delays are likely to follow.

    Quinn overview

    Here is a good overview of Quinn. He is a bit over the top.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95ACnBdUsiU

    A Very Strong Deepening Surface low is moving off the Rockies today and will be bring Heavy snow and Blizzard conditions starting tomorrow morning South Dakota. Winds are expected to range from the NW and WNW at 35 to 50 mph with winds gusting to 70 mph. Winds this strong will most likely bring down trees and Powerlines, leading to Scattered power outages. Moderate Property damage likely when winds are strongest. Snow amounts will likely range 6 to 12 inches with Local amounts in some areas up to 20 inches. The Combination of Blowing, Drifting Heavy Snow will lead to Whiteout conditions and lead to major Travel delays. Surface air pressure may get as low as 996 millibars over Sioux City, South Dakota by Monday afternoon. Winter storm Quinn then may re intensify across the Northeast by Wednesday. This is a friendly Warning for Residents living across South Dakota area that there could be significant wind damage.

    This storm hit us much harder than the last one. Our power is out and trees are groaning under all the wet sticky snow. We haven't been plowed out yet and we need to be so I can go get my son and kids and bring them here. We have the whole house generator, cable and internet. They haven't had power since 3 am last night and it's getting nippy for the 3 little kids. It's still snowing here. The winds aren't as bad as the last storm but a much bigger snow event. Now they say we may have yet another one the first of next week!

    Yep, Quinn had a much bigger impact simply because it came after Riley. By the way, it is possible for another storm to hit in a few more days.

    the link is here.

    https://weather.com/storms/winter/ne...-wind-forecast

    For the second time in less than a week, a nor'easter slammed the East Coast.

    This storm, however, has ended up much snowier along the I-95 corridor, including near the Boston-New York City-Philadelphia corridor.

    The combination of heavy snow and strong winds has resulted in tree damage and power outages.

    Winter Storm Quinn continues to bring snow to the Northeast, where it has brought up to 3 feet of heavy, wet snow and wind gusts over 50 mph, causing more than 1 million power outages.

    Third Coastal Storm in 10 Days Could Affect the East Coast Early Next Week
    By Chris Dolce
    Mar 8 2018 04:00 PM EST
    weather.com

    Story Highlights

    - The East Coast could be facing another coastal storm early next week.

    - This would be the third coastal storm in 10 days, following Winter Storms Riley and Quinn.

    - The magnitude of impacts, if any, from this third potential storm is unknown at this time.

    March is off to a roaring start for the East Coast with two strong coastal storms in five days and another potential one looming for early next week.

    First was Winter Storm Riley, which brought destructive winds, heavy snow and severe coastal flooding to the Northeast late last week. Now Winter Storm Quinn will continue to dump heavy snow on the Northeast Thursday.

    (MORE: Winter Storm Central)

    After Quinn departs Thursday night, we'll turn our attention to the next potential East Coast storm candidate.

    To be clear, the impacts, if any, from this potential storm early next week are unknown at this time.

    Specifics on the forecast will hinge on how the upper-level weather pattern evolves this weekend. Specifically, the evolution of energy in the upper atmosphere that is currently thousands of miles away from the eastern United States over far western Canada.

    That energy will first bring snow to the Mountain West as it slides east on Friday, including the Cascades and the northern Rockies.

    So far we are lucked out on snow fall this year, we got some but not anywhere as much as was predicted for this winter.
    We got a snow squall yesterday that came out of nowhere and cut visibility down to 200 yards it only lasted about half an hour.

    Mid-Atlantic snow to unfold as travel-halting blizzard in New England
    Kristina Pydynowski byline
    By Kristina Pydynowski, AccuWeather senior meteorologist
    March 12, 2018, 2:55:42 PM EDT


    Heavy snow and blizzard conditions may bring travel to a halt in Boston and Portland, Maine, on Tuesday.
    Coastal communities from the Outer Banks of North Carolina to mid-Atlanitc face a renewed risk for minor coastal flooding and power outages.
    Greatest risk for power outages and threat lives and property to exists in eastern New England

    The disruptive snowstorm targeting parts of the mid-Atlantic through Monday night will lash eastern New England with blizzard conditions on Tuesday.

    The storm is expected to rapidly strengthen Monday night into Tuesday, potentially undergoing bombogenesis.

    Eastern New England is bracing for the worst of the storm with more than a foot of snowfall, blizzard conditions and strong winds. However, disruptive snow will first streak across the southern Appalachians and southern mid-Atlantic.

    Snow to extend eastward across Virginia, North Carolina into Monday evening

    Several inches of snow accumulated across central Kentucky, southwestern Virginia and the mountains of North Carolina into Monday. Icy spots may develop on area roads as temperatures dip in the wake of the storm.



    Snow is expected to extend eastward to Raleigh, North Carolina, and Richmond, Virginia, during Monday evening. The highest totals are likely to be measured on grassy and elevated surfaces, but slick travel can still result where the snow falls heavily.

    "In order for snow to accumulate on roads during the middle of March from mid-morning to mid-afternoon, it must snow at a heavy rate to cool down both the atmosphere and road surface," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said. "Conditions can change for the worse rather quickly during the evening."

    Light snowfall can coat roads and create slippery travel more easily after dark when temperatures dip into the lower 30s or lower.



    As the snow spreads across the southern mid-Atlantic on Monday, winds will increase along the coast from North Carolina to New Jersey. Minor coastal flooding may result at high tides into Tuesday.

    Minimal storm impacts expected from Washington, D.C., to New York City

    The track of the storm will allow the Interstate-95 corridor from Washington, D.C., to New York City to escape the worst of the nor'easter.

    Occasional wet snow is in store for Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia Monday night. Any accumulation will be less than an inch and mainly confined to grassy surfaces. However, lingering wet or slushy areas can turn icy at night in the suburbs.



    Snowfall may be more persistent from New Jersey to around the New York City area with amounts Monday night into Tuesday averaging 1-3 inches. Unless the snow falls heavily for a time, most roads will be wet. Higher snow totals can lead to more slick travel across Long Island.

    "A moderate snowfall may catch the northeastern corner of Pennsylvania, while areas from Scranton and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, are likely to receive a couple of inches or less," Sosnowski said.

    A track closer to the coast would bring more snow and mounting travel disruptions for the Tuesday morning commute to this section of the I-95 corridor.

    New England to face another nor'easter; Blizzard conditions to lash eastern areas

    Regardless of the amount of snow that falls between Washington, D.C., and New York City, the storm is expected to be more disruptive and perhaps damaging across New England.



    The strengthening nor'easter will drop enough snow to plow, shovel and cause slick travel over New England beginning Monday night and continuing on Tuesday and into Tuesday night. The snow may continue to pile up across northern New England on Wednesday.

    Snowfall in northern and eastern New England may exceed 2 feet in some locations into the middle of the week. Travel will be extremely difficult as the snow clogs roads.

    Like many similar storms a span of 25 miles may be the difference between a manageable amount of snow to one that severely hampers travel and daily activities.

    Roofs, especially flat ones, that have not been cleared of the excessive snowfall from the last nor'easter may fail during this heavy snow event.



    Strong winds are expected to create dangerous blizzard conditions along the eastern coast of New England. Travel can be brought to a halt in Boston and Portland, Maine, on Tuesday. The ripple effect of flight cancellations at these major airports may impact air travelers elsewhere in the nation as crews and aircraft are displaced by the storm.

    The combination of the wind and snow can lead to renewed power outages and tree damage, especially where wires and branches have been weakened by the recent nor'easters.

    Winds can gust between 45 and 55 mph along the New England coast with gusts to around 70 mph possible on Cape Cod and the nearby islands.



    Motorists that venture out during or just prior to the storm's arrival will be at risk for getting stranded. A winter survival kit is a must for those who must travel.

    Similar to the mid-Atlantic, the storm will cause winds and waves to increase along the New England coast Monday night into Tuesday. Residents along the coast can expect moderate to major flooding for two to three high tide cycles.



    "As has been the case with the prior nor’easters in the past couple of weeks, small craft should remain in port as the storm approaches," Sosnowski said. "Large ocean-going vessels may want to consider altering their schedule until the risk of heavy seas subsides."

    While the impending nor’easter is expected to avoid the central Appalachians and Great Lakes, these areas will not escape cold winds, snow showers and localized squalls early this week.

    Cold air with brisk to blustery conditions is forecast to linger into the St. Patrick's Day weekend in the wake of the storm.

    Sometime in the last four hours the #NorEaster2018 has been upgraded to #Blizzard and suddenly #snowday3 alerts are popping up all over my feed. #gottogetthebreadandmilk

    In anticipation of the #blizzard heading towards Boston, we've made the decision to close both breweries tomorrow (March 13th). Swing by either brewery today to stock up before the storm... plus snag some extra for the plow guy (even if the plow guy = you).
    So when's the Revolution? God or Money? Choose.

    I think several hundred thousand people that lost power during Quinn still don't have power restored. I also think an additional several hundred thousand people are going to lose power again from this storm. I think some of the people in the Northeast have now been without power for the last two weeks or so. In the winter, during the snow and cold and wind. I don't know how much "minimal storm surge," these coastal areas can take before they are totally destroyed. Some of the areas in Mass and New Jersey will be hit with the third storm surge in two weeks. Flood the basement. Clean out the basement, rip up the carpet and furniture. Flood the basement again. Clean up the basement again. Flood the basement again. You are now looking at not only replacing all carpet and furniture. You are looking at damage to the house foundation, walls, floors etc. The final result, after spring comes, and the sun stays out for a week, you find you have to tear down your beach house, rebuild the foundation and then rebuild the house. The total cost of which, since flood insurance may or may not cover any of it, will be in the several hundred thousand dollar range FOR EACH COASTAL HOUSE YOU HAVE TO REBUILD FROM SCRATCH. So, we are looking at likely multiple BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN DAMAGES COVERING SEVERAL STATES. Yep, some serious rethinking needs to be done on whether any of the coastal housing should be rebuilt at all. One thing is for sure to me. I doubt if the Feds, or the states, or the private insurance companies are going to pay for very much of that cost, assuming they pay for any of the flood damage.

    Add that on to the hurricanes we've seen and insurance companies are in for a rough patch.

    We had a LOT of flooding out here in Michigan recently--like roads got closed due to water flooding--and there are plenty of people annoyed about the whole "homeowner's insurance doesn't cover floods" thing.

    We have another 12-18 coming tomorrow. Lost our chicken run during the last one. It has certainly kick started the maples. Getting close to 50 gals of sap a day out of 30 taps and they were dry a week ago.

    The main problem, as I see it, isn't that this is a particularly "big, bad storm." It is the fact of overwhelming the various people and systems. I haven't heard whether all the snow that fell since March 1st has melted, so I guess people are dealing with truly staggering amounts of snow totals by now. I did hear that there are still a lot of people who never got power back from the earlier storms. The ability to drive around, or fly planes in, or trains, or trucks has pretty much been severely impacted for the last two weeks. The JIT, just in time, deliver system has been strained to put it mildly. I wonder if the grocery stores managed to get restocked between last week and today.

    And to spice things up, since we have been having a HUGE NUMBER OF VOLCANOES ERUPT WORLDWIDE we may be looking at some type of 1816's "YEAR WITH NO SUMMER."

    Truly staggering amounts of carbon dioxide, particulate matter, and rocks/magma have been hurled into the atmosphere, and been picked up by the jet stream to create a layer blocking sunlight the last several months. When you add in the solar minimum cycle, ie less sun energy reaching earth, and the energy that does reach us being partially blocked, well what we have been dealing with the last month or so may be the new "winter normal," for the next few years.

    We got 18" in the last storm and many lost power. Prior to that we had no snow on the ground. It was easy to move and push back despite the amount. 2014 was a lot worse. We ran out of places to put snow. Went to the store last night and it was fully stocked. All the gas stations etc are fine as well. My parents are in RI and I work with people in MA and there are no reports of shortages.

    This weather is not unusual for March. Many of our largest storms particularly Noreasters happen end of Feb/ March timeframe.

    Yep. We're not on the coast, but got at least 17" of snow last week, on top of a couple of 8-10" mini-storms. We're out of power for about 12 hours during one of them. This is NORMAL for March, and as Mecoastie says, the relatively open winter (February was abnormally warm, and as often happens, it seems February and March just switched) means tgere is plenty if places to out the snow we're having now.

    The people who are almost certainly struggling and wishing it would stop are those directly on the coast, in the areas that have been flooded. There's no question that those areas are a mess, and the continued March of storms up the coast are mak8ng cleanup and recovery a major challenge.

    But this isn't some EOTW scenario, or even a widespread major disaster. It's awful for those whose houses flooded, but that's what happens when you live on a storm-prone seacoast.

    We got 14 inches last week and supposed to get 12 to 18 tomorrow. That is all on TOP of the already 2 1/2 ft already on the ground plus the 6 inches of compressed hard pack with ice. Sigh......

    We don't need anymore snow up here........ latest from NWS....

    Winter Storm Warning

    URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
    National Weather Service Gray ME
    730 PM EDT Mon Mar 12 2018

    ...ANOTHER SNOW STORM FORECAST TO AFFECT MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE
    TONIGHT THROUGH EARLY WEDNESDAY...

    .Low pressure rapidly developing off the Carolina coast will move
    north, passing south and east of New England and into the
    Canadian Maritimes by Tuesday night. Snow is expected to develop
    from south to north beginning late tonight in southern Maine and
    New Hampshire, reaching mid-coast and central Maine by early
    Tuesday morning. The snow will become heavy at times during the
    day Tuesday before beginning to taper off Tuesday night and early
    Wednesday. Snow is expected to linger in the mountains and
    foothills into Wednesday. A significant snowfall is expected for
    the entire area, but variations in the storm track are still
    possible. If the storm tracks further to the south, lower
    snowfall amounts would be expected, any shift in the storm track
    closer to southern New England would lead to greater snow totals
    for the region.
