Snowstorm Friday Has Potential To Be Historic (New England, Boston, etc)

BOSTON (CBS) - The snowstorm Friday will be big, but will it be historic and rival some of the legendary storms of Boston’s past?

The short answer is it just might.

I think it is safe to say that Friday’s storm will easily be the biggest one of not only this season but last season as well.

In fact, Boston has the chance to see as much snow in this one storm as they have seen in total from this winter and last!

Only six times in Boston’s weather history (more than 100 years) has more than 20 inches fallen in one storm. You truly need the atmosphere to set up just right for a blockbuster snow event.

1. Potentially Dangerous Blizzard Forecast For New England After Run Of Paltry Winter Weather

Associated Press, Updated: Wednesday, February 6, 5:58 PM

CONCORD, N.H. — A blizzard heading to New England could make travel nearly impossible and dump up to 2 feet of snow on a region that has seen mostly bare ground this winter.

The snow will start Friday morning, with the heaviest amounts dumped on the region that night and into Saturday as the storm moves through New England and upstate New York, the National Weather Service said.

“This has the potential for being a dangerous storm, especially for Massachusetts into northeast Connecticut and up into Maine,” said Louis Uccellini, director of the weather agency’s National Centers for Environmental Prediction.

Uccellini, who has written two textbooks on northeastern snowstorms, said Wednesday it was too early to tell if the storm would be one for the record books. But he said it will be a rare and major storm, the type that means “you can’t let your guard down.”

3. Talking about 3-4" of snow mid-michigan but warning for us to 'watch the track' as it is coming

together as it forms over us.

We could use the moisture as long as it isn't ice. I don't do 'ice'... LOL

4. NOAA is saying up to a foot here in West Michigan.

Through Thursday, that is. I cannot possibly shovel my driveway. I hope my neighbor has his tractor ready. And if the road doesn't get plowed, I can't go anywhere anyway.
