Possible Historic Winter Storm
Posted by Vivian Gonzalez
South Florida our weather will be uneventful while the Northeast will be getting pounded by a possible historic Winter storm. There are two areas of low pressure merging together and a blizzard is already starting for parts of the Northeast. Light snows started late morning and hurricane force winds are expected by this afternoon as the storm grows larger off the coast.
Aside from hurricane force winds, between one to three feet of snow and over 12 inches of rain will be likely. High tide concerns along the coast are there as well. Computer models are showing that improving conditions will take place on Sunday as the area of low pressure moves away.
A Winter Storm and Blizzard Warning are in place for the Northeast.
As far as our local weather is concerned, the tail-end of the front attached to the spin of low pressure off the Carolina coast is poised to move through South Florida unnoticed on Saturday. We are just hoping it could produce some isolated showers, but most of the models are keeping conditions mostly dry and warm through the upcoming week. However, we are expecting breezy conditions along the coast.
Have a wonderful weekend South Florida and make it a safe one!
