The models appear to be in agreement: something big is coming to the northeast midweek, while the West is on track for a holiday-season burial.
A major nor’easter will barrel through the mid-Atlantic to the Northeast starting on Wednesday bringing with it heavy, blowing snow.
Although the NWS has yet to issue specific snowfall predictions, the weather models and some private forecasting companies — including AccuWeather — have predicted as much as 2 feet pounding the U.S. states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia beginning Wednesday, December 16:
It’s been a few years since New Jersey has seen a storm that could bring this much snow, said Patrick O’Hara, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Mount Holly: “It hasn’t been this bad in a while,” he said.
Based on a review of NWS snowfall statistics, Wednesday’s nor’easter has a good shot at becoming the region’s biggest mid-Dec snowstorm on record, reports nj.com who give particular mention to Newark and Atlantic City.
“A major winter storm is expected to impact portions of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast this Wednesday into Thursday as a nor’easter develops and lifts up along the east coast,” the NWS said Sunday.
“It’s going to be kind of a fluffy kind of snow. There’s certainly the possibility that a lot of this snow can stick around up until Christmas,” Accuweather meteorologist Tom Kines said to the New York Post.
Areas can expect a preliminary shot of cold and snow on Monday, before the “biggie” rolls in Wednesday.
Residents are being urged to prepare.
Both the GFS and ECMWF have heavy snow burying much of the Western half of the United States over the next 10-or-so days.
Substantial totals are forecast to hit the mountains states this week, while every western state can expect to receive some powder into the holiday season:
In fact, over the next two weeks, the GFS has every U.S. state receiving at least a few flakes–barring only Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana (yes, even Hawaii should see snow).
Snow will blanket ALL of Canada too, with multiple feet falling in many areas–particularly in the far east and west:
Such accumulations will give a further boost what has already been an above-average start to the Northern Hemisphere’s 2020/21 snowpack season.
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
