Snowstorm in the Northeast

Wed Dec 16, 2020 9:28 pm

A major snowstorm is expected to hit the Northeast tonight and tomorrow morning and bring over a foot of snow to New York City, the most in a single storm since January 2016. Further south, a quarter inch of ice could accumulate in Maryland, North Carolina, West Virginia, and Virginia. Storng winds with 40-60 mph wind gusts could lead to blizzard like conditions in some places like New York City. Very significant storm about to hit the Northeast.

'The Northeast' of what? Nigeria? Saudi Arabia? Thailand? Anywhere where this would be even remotely interesting or unusual this time of year?
Signature. You just read one.

Ignoring the rude people, it looks like it went as predicted, heavy snow and ice, sadly a few deaths.

Will this storm lead to a COVID-19 superspreader event?

I think the best thing to get people to stay home is 19" of snow and blowing winds and ice.

Nope! Mid to end of September 2021 on the other hand is more likely. A human pregnancy last for about 40 weeks / 9-9½ months and 40 weeks from today is 24 September 2021.

He was broadcasting from the area where I live, the Lehigh Valley. We got about 12-14" depending on where you are in the Valley.

Some places in north central Pennsylvania, like Bradford County, got over 40".

And now tonight we're supposed to get a couple inches of rain. Yay.
