Major East Coast Storm

Well – here’s your “Historic East Coast Storm!” Blizzard Warning now in effect for the next 2 days or so.
Looks like Hoboken is in the 2-3 foot range – with possibly more. Can’t wait to see how this turns out. Move your cars if possible! The city is also TOWING cars if they’re not moved off “Emergency Snow Routes.” Keep in mind this wasn’t always the case. So you have till 9pm to move your cars tonight.

Major East Coast Storm possible? Is Hoboken ready?
As of early Sunday AM – the weather nerds out there are wetting their pants at the possibility of a major east cost storm on Monday and Tuesday. They’re so excited that they’re referring to it as a possible once-in-a-lifetime “Biblical East Coast Storm.”
While all they have to “play with” are computer models and those often can change drastically and unexpectedly – many models are currently calling for a massive amount of snow for our area (measured in FEET). Take a look at that graphic below. 3+ feet for the NYC area.
This particular storm, which will potentially affect our area as early as late tonight / Monday morning apparently has what are called “sharp gradients.” Where the “bulls eye” (wherever that turns out to be) can get paralyzed with many feet of snow (say 40″ or more) and just 100-150 miles outward, you’ll see a few inches. Who knows what will happen.
But can you imagine a 40″ snow storm here in Hoboken or NYC? Fugghedaboutit. All I can say is that if our area is indeed forecasted to be the “bulls eye” later tonight – it might not be a bad idea to take your car(s) and most certainly put them in a garage – or even get out of dodge while the city digs out! Being “trapped” would suck royal ass!
