There is a real threat to the East Coast for this upcoming storm.  The GFS has been fairly consistent with the general precipitation totals.

Additionally, the 13km GFS output (18Z) shows 40+ mph 10 m winds well inland in New Jersey. 50+ mph along the coast!

Wish we got storms like this around here. Grand snow total today was a whopping 0.7 inches.


2016-17 Snowfall (Dec. 4: 4.5") (Dec. 10-11: 3.1") (Dec. 16-17: 3.6") (Dec. 23: 0.5")(Jan. 22: 1.1") (Feb. 08: 1.1") (Feb. 24: 0.9")(Mar. 13: 5.0")

TOTAL: 19.8"

If the modeling holds for another 24hrs, I'll feel a lot more comfortable.

Currently, assuming everything holds, I'd anticipate approximately 15-20" here, with 8-12" around iFred's area. I'm not ready to get super bullish yet, and presume the end-result will be a somewhat smaller version of the February 5-6, 2010 "snowmaggeddon" storm, in terms of snowfall distribution/amounts.

Looks like the mid-Atlantic is in for a storm of the decade this Friday!

 

Models have been really consistent on giving DC and N VA at least 28".

I got to speak to a met today who works for a firm in Philly. The recent misses by the Euro and some of the recent GFS struggles are giving the local NOAA office a headache. He went for 12+ for Philly, but noted that we should expect a last minute northerly trend if model bias is active, with the precip core from DC to outside of Trenton. This pending the 06z GFS and the Hi Res Friday morning.

In any case, anything more that 12 inches in 24 hours will exceed anything I've experienced locally in Seattle.

Praying to Jeefus for a Philly based move.

The word on the street is that the GFS is overplaying warm air influence with its sleetpocolypse and the Euro might have some issues after it veered to the east in one frame. Kind of exciting to see a storm like this as there is a potential to hit three or more metros with 16+ inches of snow.

Those are some crazy numbers. NY looks to get in on the big numbers now. But I would be sweating it there until the last minute. Close to the cut off.

Having fun tracking this even though it is 600 + miles away.

The GFS is kind to SE PA, with 2' totals.

I've been irrationally worried about he northern extent of the precip shield or mixing.

That is a seriously tough call for NYC and Long Island. If the low decides to hook even a little, that area is really going to get clocked like the NAM shows.

I'm in Philly for this one. The GFS had QPF at 2-ish inches and snow maps at 2 ft. The recent runs are supporting the northerly trend without compromising temps. I'm really curious how the Euro resolves this as the last solution moved forwards what the GFS modeled. I'm feeling confident for 16+ totals with the northern limit in the Lehigh Valley.

I assume the Euro will bump back north a bit tonight, though I admit the southward tick in the 12z EPS mean bothered me a bit. Even a mere 30-40 mile bump north tonight would be enough to relax me substantially.

The biggest shift with the NAM is now Boston went from a dusting to 15". I see there's not winter weather headlines in CT currently and if trends continue they're going to have to issue them tonight.

That bulls eye location just NW of DC has been really consistent in the last 36 hours.

 

Big difference in central PA now with State College at 23".

Virginia looks to be in on the bull's eye for this storm. However, most places only have a Winter Storm Warning rather than a Blizzard Warning. It will be interesting to see if places get as much as the models are forecasting.

Is it any wonder why Texas is getting the wind it's getting and the jet is driving this east coast storm like a freight train.

About 3" here so far, snowing moderately. The wind is starting to pick up too, though the real deal (heavier rates + winds) won't arrive for another ~6 hours down here, and will take around 12 hours to arrive up in Philadelphia.

Thank you, yeah this is WAA-snow, so basically an appetizer of sorts until the heavier rates/winds arrive late tonight.

Here's a pic of the snowfall under the floodlights:

Phil or whoever lives locally. Has a blizzard like this ever taken place during a strong/super el Niño winter?

It will be fun to see how your deck changes over the next 18 hrs.

The snowfall in DC is impressive at this hour. May be the only time DC looks serene and beautiful.

Watching the coverage on TWC and CNN, seeing the roads almost completely empty of a Friday evening is really eerie. But that's good that people heeded the warning from officials.

Between 4-5" now and adding up at ~1"hr here. I'm surprised at the wind gusts, hitting 25-30mph already..the wind-field doesn't go nuts for another 4-6hrs or so.

It would be nice to see the Patriots game snowed out, but as long as Shady Brady and Bill Belicheat lose, that is all that really matters.

Starting to go nuts out there. Approaching 6" of accumulation, winds gusting into the 30-35mph range.

The real stuff is now approaching from VA/NC. Should get here by midnight or so, bringing 40-50mph wind gusts (60-70mph towards the Chesapeake Bay).
