Midwest gets foot of snow in season's first major wintry storm

Officials warn of ‘very tough travel’ ahead of Thanksgiving as winter weather hits South Dakota, Iowa, Illinois and beyond

The first significant wintry storm of the season blanketed parts of the midwest with a foot of snow and more was on the way Saturday, creating hazardous conditions as some travelers prepared to depart for the Thanksgiving holiday.
While winter has not officially begun, the shovels and snowblowers were out from South Dakota and southern Minnesota to Iowa, Wisconsin and northern Illinois. The National Weather Service said the snow would continue in Illinois and Indiana on Saturday and move into Michigan before heading north-east into Canada late Saturday.
“In those areas, it is going to be a very tough travel day,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Bruce Terry in College Park, Maryland.

Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport had 4in of snow by early Saturday. About 250 flights in and out of the busy airport had been canceled by Saturday morning, according to the tracking website FlightAware.com, while Midway International Airport had canceled about 100 flights.

Roads were slushy due to a rain and snow mix around the Chicago area, which was forecast to get between six and 10in. Marengo, about 65 miles northwest of the city, recorded a foot of snow, according to weather service meteorologist Bruce Sullivan. The Illinois Tollway, which maintains interstate tollways in 11 counties, said it had 185 snowplows ready to go and 84,000 tons of salt stockpiled.

Temperatures plunged behind the front. Sioux Falls, South Dakota, reached 11 degrees Saturday and the town of Estherville in northern Iowa was even colder, at six degrees with a wind chill of minus four, the weather service said.
South-eastern South Dakota got up to 18in of snow on Friday, Terry said.

In Iowa, Des Moines received 6in by late Friday and amounts of a foot or more were common in northern Iowa. The highest recorded snowfall in the state was 17 inches, the weather service said.

The Iowa department of transportation warned people in Des Moines and several other cities not to travel because of the hazardous conditions. Iowa state patrol sergeant Nathan Ludwig said troopers in northern and western Iowa were seeing many cars in ditches, especially near Mason City and Council Bluffs, the Des Moines Register reported.

It is not unusual for snow to fall in the midwest before Thanksgiving, Terry said.
“Some of those amounts are pretty impressive for this time of year,” he added.

"Snowmageddon" Set To Hit East Coast US With Record Snowfall

 

January 22, 2016 | by Josh L Davis

Snowmageddon. Snowpocolypse. Snowzilla. Call it what you will, it looks like North America is set for a serious bout of weather as an intensifying snow storm sweeps across the states, bringing with it predictions of a historic blizzard hitting the East Coast.

 

Record levels of snow are expected to be dumped on Washington, D.C., and the mid-Atlantic region, while the Gulf states have been warned of heavy rains and the potential for tornadoes.

 

In the build up to the storm, a state of emergency has been declared in the capital and five other states: Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Tennessee. The storm is expected to affect 50 million people and bring up to 61 centimeters (2 feet) of snow over the weekend, with gusts of winds as strong as 80 kilometers per hour (50 mph).

 

Washington is expected to be the worst hit, with an astonishing 76 centimeters (2.5 feet) of snow forecast to fall between Friday afternoon and Saturday evening.

 

Στιγμιότυπο 2016-01-23, 5.13.17 πμ.png

 

People finding themselves in the eye of the storm have been warned to be aware of the potential danger of blizzards, high winds, white-outs and even possibly thundersnow – a thunderstorm where snow falls instead of rain. Those on the edges have been cautioned against storm surges and inland flooding.

 

It is not looking as big as Superstorm Sandy that hit in 2012, but people from Delaware to New York have been warned to prepare themselves all the same. “We're bracing for the first big storm of the winter. I want to let my fellow New Yorkers know we're prepared, the agencies here are ready for what's coming up ahead,” said New York’s mayor, Bill de Blasio.

 

Στιγμιότυπο 2016-01-23, 5.14.32 πμ.png

 

More than 4,500 flights are reported to have been canceled for Friday and Saturday in expectation of the blizzard, while the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority will suspend all operations of the subway over the weekend. Schools will also be closed, and motorists are urged to stay off the roads, with fatalities having already been recorded in Virginia and North Carolina.

 

Store shelves have been stripped clean, as people have begun stocking up on essentials like bread and milk in preparation for the lock-down that is likely to occur over the weekend.

 

Low pressure from the eastern Pacific Ocean has moved west across the United States, eventually giving way to a more intense area of low pressure around the coast, and it is this that becomes the driving force in forming the heavy snow bands set to smother Washington.

 

The intense pressure gradient will also create strong winds and extreme rainfall along the Gulf Coast. As the patch of low pressure continues to push east, the area of severe weather will do the same.

Dangerous Winter Storm Jonas to Bring Crippling Snow, Heavy Icing; Blizzard Warnings From D.C. to New York City

 

January 22, 2016

More than 67 million Americans in 19 states are under blizzard warnings or winter storm warnings as Winter Storm Jonas cranks up over the South and marches toward the East Coast, generating an expanding swath of snow and ice across both regions. Another 21 million people are under National Weather Service watches and advisories for winter weather in anticipation of Jonas' impacts.

Jonas had already dumped as much as 18 inches of snow in western North Carolina and up to 16 inches in eastern Kentucky as of late Friday afternoon. Up to a foot of snow has fallen in southwest Virginia, and a half foot or more of snow has blanketed parts of Tennessee, upstate South Carolina, northeast Georgia, western Virginia, West Virginia and Arkansas. Snow has also been reported as far south as Florida.

Thundersnow was reported in the Nashville area Friday morning with snowfall rates of an inch per hour. Even heavier snowfall rates of 2 inches per hour were observed in Jackson, Kentucky, and Roanoke, Virginia, Friday morning.

Conditions will go downhill rapidly Friday night through Saturday in the Mid-Atlantic and portions of the Northeast where blizzard conditions, strong winds and coastal flooding will develop. The National Weather Service has now issued blizzard warnings from northern Virginia to Long Island, including Washington D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York. Heavy snow and strong winds will bring travel to a grinding halt, between late Friday and Sunday morning.

Current Radar

As of Friday afternoon, more than 89 million people – or roughly one in every four Americans – in 25 states were covered by either a blizzard warning, winter storm watch, winter storm warning, winter weather advisory, or freezing rain advisory from Louisiana and Arkansas to the Carolinas to the New York City area and extreme southern New England.

Winter Storm Jonas Alerts

Let's start with the impacts from Jonas, then we'll detail the forecast timing.

Snow and Ice Impacts

  • At least 1 foot of snow: Eastern Kentucky into a large part of of West Virginia, western North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, D.C., northern Delaware, far southern Pennsylvania, central New Jersey and the New York City area. Amounts exceeding 2 feet are possible in parts of western Virginia, eastern West Virginia, central Maryland and the District of Columbia.
  • At least 6 inches of snow: Northern New Jersey, Lower Hudson Valley, southern Connecticut, southern Rhode Island, southeast Massachusetts; central Kentucky and parts of Middle Tennessee; otherwise, a narrow zone immediately surrounding the 1-foot zone.
  • Damaging ice: Damaging ice accumulations of 1/2 inch or more have already been reported from parts of Upstate South Carolina into the Piedmont and foothills of North Carolina. Damaging ice accumulations may affect the Charlotte and Greensboro/Winston-Salem metropolitan areas. The Raleigh-Durham area may also see enough ice to break tree limbs and down power lines. The threat of ice accumulation has ended in Kentucky, but some locations saw 1/4 to 3/10 inch of ice accumulation before changing over to snow.

Other Impacts

 

Strong winds are expected north of the low pressure center over parts of the Mid-Atlantic Friday night into Saturday. These will likely cause power outages and sporadic damage.

Those winds will also raise the threat of coastal flooding during both high tides Saturday along the Atlantic coast from Long Island Sound to the Delmarva Peninsula.

For more on the threat of coastal flooding and strong winds, see our full story on the forecast for high winds and coastal flooding from Winter Storm Jonas.

map_specnewsdct-06_ltst_4namus_enus_650x
Current Temperatures and Weather

On the warm side of Winter Storm Jonas, scattered severe thunderstorms, may impact parts of eastern North Carolina Friday night as the storm intensifies.

Thunderstorms and strong wind gusts are expected to develop late Friday night and last through much of Saturday from the Chesapeake Bay area to the Delmarva peninsula, New Jersey, Long Island and coastal southern New England. Thundersnow will likely develop at times across this region.

Winter Storm Jonas: Timing

  • Friday night: Snow lingers across Tennessee, northern Alabama and northern Georgia. A mess of snow, sleet or freezing rain spreads across the lower Ohio Valley, Appalachians, Carolinas and Virginia. Snow advances north up the Interstate 95 corridor Friday night, mainly south of Connecticut. Winds intensify Friday night along the coast from the Carolinas to the Jersey Shore, and near Chesapeake Bay.

map_specnewsdct-56_ltst_4namus_enus_650x
Friday Night's Forecast

  • Saturday/Saturday night: Heavy snow in the Appalachians and the Mid-Atlantic states. Snow will spread into southern New England. Precipitation may change to snow as far south as parts of South Carolina. Rain changes to snow near the Mid-Atlantic coast. Strong, possibly damaging winds from the Delmarva Peninsula to Cape Cod.

“Parade of Storms” About to Clobber Western USA | Snow Totals Looking Ridiculous…

March 1, 2016

 

12747535_1329245757101179_66547308559106“As has been recently advertised, a more active storm track is becoming more likely and will result in widespread precipitation into this weekend and next week. The image shows the 7-day precipitation forecast across the West.” – NOAA, yesterday

NOAA and more are forecasting a BIG pattern change for the West Coast and the Western USA this week from hot and dry to cold and wet.

Some weather models are showing HUGE snowfall totals for the West Coast in the next 7 days and nearly all models are showing a very stormy month of March in the Western USA.

Miracle March is on its way!

12821549_984745048267518_463230475344142The above model is showing somewhere around 8″ of liquid precipitation for Lake Tahoe, CA between now and March 11th – which, if it all came as snow, would translate to about 8-feet of snow…. California, Oregon, Washington:

Huge precipitation numbers and drowning snowfalls are forecast for the West Coast in the next week. Up to 5-8″ of liquid precipitation is forecast in spots in the next 7-days (which could translate to 5-8 feet of snow…).

Some weather models are forecasting up to 6-Feet of snowfall for Lake Tahoe, CA/NV above 8,000-feet by Monday…

Can I go out on the limb and forecast 5-10 feet through the latter part of next week.” –
Powderchasers.com
, forecast for the Sierra Nevada, CA today

Brian Allegretto of Opensnow.com is forecasting 25-42″ of snow above 8,000-feet by Monday.

Mammoth Mountain Weather Guy is forecasting 120-150″ of snowfall for Mammoth in the month of March.

p168i.gif7-day liquid precip totals in CA, OR, WA are looking huge and wild. image: noaa, today Idaho, Wyoming, Montana:

Around 2.5″ of liquid precipitation is forecast in the next 7-days in the northern Rockies, which would translate to around 2.5-feet of snow is the mountains (Jackson Hole, Grand Targhee, Big Sky).

hazards_d8_14_contours.pngHeavy Snow forecast in CO next week on March 8-9th. Heavy snow forecast in CA from March 8-14th. image: noaa, today Colorado:

Looking like a snowy week next week with around .8″ of liquid precipitation forecast the next 7-days, which would translate to around a 8″ of snowfall in CO. Local forecasters are calling for even more…

map_specnewsdct-86_ltst_4namus_enus_650xLooking good for snow in the Western USA this week. Utah:

NOAA is forecasting 1.2″ of liquid forecast for Utah the next 7-days which would translate to around 14″ of snowfall. Powder Mountain & Snowbasin look like they’ll do well in this cycle. Alta, Snowbird, Solitude, and Brighton always seem to get more snow than forecast…

Then, expect a return to cool and unsettled conditons, maybe even some snow for the lowlands” – NOAA, Colorado yesterday12804612_955667241147034_696012497618363“Here comes the moisture!” – NOAA Seattle, WA today12814641_1046849775374714_61170763702658“Our sleepy El Niño is back from its slumber to a more typical pattern. This early spring is about to receive a rude awakening! Beginning this weekend a series of storms will barrel in from the Pacific between then, and mid-March. Initially, the snow levels will be relatively high until the trough deepens the snow levels will then drop to perhaps below 2000 feet.” – ABC30 weatherman Kevin Musso, today

12 feet :on2long: of snow forecasted for the West Coast, starting immediately

OCTOBER 13, 2016
Believe it or not, the West Coast is slated to see an insanely huge snow storm, right in the thick of October.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), starting today and running all the way through Monday, Mt. Hood, Oregon will receive up to 80 inches; Mt. Shasta, California will see up to 138 inches; and Mt. Baker, Washington will get up to 140 inches. That’s upwards of 12 feet of snow…

Other areas across the West are sure to see some serious snowfall, as well, so make sure to check out your local forecasts to see if October turns may be in your future. And if you’re on the East Coast, don’t worry; sounds like you’re going to get your fair share eventually, too.

Storm Dispatch: Revelstoke, British Columbia
Over the past week, 43 inches of snow has fallen at Revelstoke Mountain Resort




January 31, 2018
By David Reddick




"Soooooo, this is pretty normal???" Brian asks me as he shovels out his walkway, while I snap photos of his basketball net, which happens to be filled with half a meter of snow. With another meter or so settled in the lawn, I could probably throw down a few mean LeBron James-style dunks, if not for the snowy rim protector.
Brian is an Irishman on a two-year work visa and tells me that he has seen more snow in the past week than the entirety of his life before moving to Revelstoke. And when I tell him that this is fairly normal, he just shakes his head, laughs and goes back to shoveling.

While I am being truthful in my assessment of the normality of living in a consistently snowy part of the world, the past few days were not exactly normal. It has felt like being inside a giant snow globe, only the person holding it has lost their Shake Weight and has decided that our town is an appropriate replacement for their 'As Seen on TV' workout program.

Over the past week, approximately 1.1 meters (43 inches) of snow has fallen at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, offering up more free refills than your local fast-food chain. And this isn't the first time it has happened this season. RMR is currently on a record-pace for its seasonal snowfall amount, with just over 8 meters of snow to date. And with more snow in the forecast all this week, this 10th anniversary season is shaping up to be one for the record books.

Yet the true magic of this particular storm has been the way the storm has transformed the town into a winter wonderland. Huge flakes falling slowly from the sky, illuminated by a warm streetlamp, have turned everyone into your kids, looking up the heavens and sticking out their tongues, trying to catch a few stray flakes. The trees in town are loaded almost to their threshold and metal rooftops shed their snow load, making it a realistic possibility of having an avalanche hazard rating for your house.

I would classify the hazard as High, with a significant probability of full burial of your walkway or entrance. Snow blowers that have been sitting in front of the local dealer since the fall suddenly disappear and the hardware store is most likely seeing sales of shovels skyrocket. Yet this is what brings people together in these winter towns.
Neighbours helping shovel out the walkway next door. Sneaking the local snow removal driver a sixer to keep the driveway cleared. Watching families clear out their parking spot after a day at the resort.

All of these moments are the thin threads that weave together to form the fabric of life in our little winter paradise. So, while skiing all of this magical snow is an integral part of my job, capturing the essence of our ski town is just as important to me, along with putting the local characters on display. Because you can't spell community without unity.
