Northeast Storm Summary

A major snow storm swept across the Northeast yesterday bringing in some impressive snow totals.  With this storm, now more than 99% of the region is covered in snow.  The only areas that aren’t covered in snow are portions of Cape Cod and the far eastern tip of Long Island.

Blue areas indicate snow depth. Map shows 99.3 percent of the Northeast covered in snow this morning.  Here is a selection of photos from the storm:

New Years Eve Forecast

The countdown is on to 2013!  Only one more full day left in the year.  Weather conditions for celebrations around the nation will range from 70s (Miami) to wind chills of -20 (Minneapolis). Check out other Midnight temperatures:

Clouds will build in across the Northeast but most areas will stay dry.  Temperatures stay fairly mild through the overnight hours.

After chilly morning today, temperatures as the clock strikes midnight on Monday night will be returning to a more tolerable level.  A comfortable 70s expected in Miami!

Showers and thunderstorms will be moving through the Southern Plains during the overnight hours.  Around midnight, that line may extend from the gulf coast of Texas to Central Louisiana.  Some of these storms may be strong enough to produce severe wind gusts with thunder and lightning.  A more natural light show may be occurring as storms roll through.

Bundle up!  Pink shaded areas indicate sub zero temperatures. But that’s only half the story.  Wind chill values in Minnesota and the Dakotas could be as long as 20 to 30 degrees below zero during the overnight hours.

Lots of sunshine expected through the early part of the week throughout the Northwest.  Clear, dry conditions will continue into the overnight hours providing for a nice break from the recent inundation of wet weather.

Plan on a messy mix of rain and snow in the Ohio River Valley.  Sloppy and slippery roads will make traveling around during the overnight hours dangerous.

Have a great New Year!
