Rain heading this way; two blizzards one weekend

February 9th, 2013 at 6:31 pm by under Weather

Many colleagues of mine knew that the blizzard in the Northeast would be big but seeing the photos of four and five foot snow drifts is amazing.  Here are some of the impressive snowfall totals – and yes 30 inches is correct! A few viewers here in the Miami Valley have family and friends out east and have sent some pictures via our reportit feature.

Mike Giannott – This is on Long Island, NY, in Suffolk County where vehicles were abandoned last night because it was so bad. From 24 to over 30 inches have been reported on Long Island.

Tamantha Massey  Pictures my boss sent from his residence in Hartford CT this morning.

Susan Cervone -  This is the snowfall by this morning in Kings Park, NY.  Please note, the bump in the top left corner under the tree branches is a car.

I have also found a neat time lapse video that you can see by clicking here.  If you want to see some more photos from the blizzard you can click here to take a look at our photo gallery.

While the Northeast is digging out – another storm is developing out west and will produce blizzard conditions for the northern and central plains.

Right now the system is just taking shape and producing some snow in Colorado. It will track northward and bring snow and strong winds to the plains.  For us we’ll be on the warmer side of this storm which means we’ll see mainly rain.

Most of Sunday will be dry with just some clouds increasing – however rain develops out west and moves eastward for the evening.

By Monday we may see a few early morning showers otherwise clouds decrease for the afternoon.

Enjoy the weekend!
