Thanks to @jhowardpr for this picture out of New York. It’s a very snowy Union Square!
Thanks to Tri-State Weather for this image out of the Bronx from yesterday. Interestingly, schools were NOT closed on Thursday in New York. By the way, New York City public schools have only been closed 11 times since 1978!
WOW! Thanks to Earl Shortridge for this image out of Pilot, VA where he measured 20″ !!
NOAA’s Weather Prediction Center has a huge list of snow tallies from the latest storm system. As of 4pm EST, there were several reports exceeding 18″ and a few nearing 2ft.! Maryland, Virgina and West Virginia seemed to be the two states where some of the heaviest tallies were found.
Here’s a map of snowfall amounts from Midday Tuesday into Midday Wednesday. Note the extreme snowfall amounts from the northern portions of the Gulf Coast States to near New York.

Active Pattern Continues
The forecast looks quite active into the upcoming weekend. A near continuous fountain on moisture continues to wring itself out over the Pacific Northwest. Pieces of these storms will move through the nation quite frequently, each will bring some rain and snow to parts of the eastern U.S.
Wet in the Pacific Northwest
Heavy precipitation continues to fall in the Pacific Northwest. The image below shows NOAA’s 5 day precipitation forecast, where 5″ to 10″ or more can’t be ruled out by early next week!
The plume of tropical moisture in the Eastern Pacific continues. The Atmospheric River has been responsible for copious amount of moisture lately. Hopefull we can see this wobble a little farther south into California as well.
February Precipitation So Far
This is an interesting map, it shows the radar estimated precipitation over the last 7 days. Note how much precipitation we’ve seen in the western U.S. since the start of the month. This certainly is nice to see, but we still need a lot more, especially in California.
Thanks for checking in and have a great weekend ahead!
