The monster storm bringing a blizzard to New England continues to intensify. A wind advsory tonight for most of the D.C. area A dramatic GOES image tonight of the storm now producing 1-3 inches of snow per hour. 150,000+ power outages in southern New England and climbing.
The storm will move northeast and be well east of Cape Cod by Saturday afternoon. Here is a look at the storm surge magnitude tonight along the coast. Not as bad as Sandy but still a very destructive storm.
Here in the D.C. area the only real impact from this huge storm will be increasing winds overnight. Look at this simulation of the winds in the East by early Saturday morning from the great Penn State weather page.
The storm finally leaves New England late Saturday and dry air and plenty of sunshine and light winds will be with us, and most of New England for Sunday. Local snow lovers are sure missing a huge, perhaps historic storm.
