Major Winter Storm to Bring Heavy Snow & Blizzard Conditions: Tuesday PM through Wednesday PM.

7:00 AM: Thursday 2-11-10

Total Snowfall here in Pittsgrove, NJ: 11.5"

For other snowfall reports, please see the Public information statements from NWS Mt.Holly NJ.

PHL: Broke the all time seasonal snowfall record. They came in at 15.8" from yesterday's storm, and needed 9" to break the record. Congrats Philly ! PHL is now at 72.0" of snow for the season, the old record was 65" set in 1996 season.

Here in Pitsgrove, NJ I'm at 69.0" for the season. BTW another storm coming for Monday into Monday evening. This looks like a more minor event of 2"-4" or 3"-6" at this time. I'll do a write-up on this event over the weekend.

Final Call
Monday 2-8-2010
Issued: 6:00 PM

Another big hit coming for the Delaware Valley Region, as Miller B coastal storm, and strong H5 dynamics, bring heavy snow and strong winds for Tuesday night into Wednesday Evening. please see my previous writeup for discussion on this storm. I have made some changes from my preliminary thoughts and have increased accumulations in some areas. Please see my snowfall map for amounts.

Snow will spread into the region during the early and mid evening hours on Tuesday and continue into Wednesday evening. Snow will become heavy at times from later Tuesday night into much of Wednesday, then taper down during Wednesday evening. Some sleet and rain will mix with the snow over Southern/Central DE to the SE NJ coast later Tuesday night into early Wednesday, then change back to snow during the day. All other areas will be all snow.

Winds will increase later Tuesday night and become strong during Wednesday and Wednesday night, causing Blizzard conditions along with blowing and drifting snow. I'm forecasting winds of 20-35 Mph with gusts to near 50 Mph, for Wednesday into Wednesday night.

Good Evening Ruggie,

Just wanted to let you know most of the DC meteorologist are literally going nust on this storm..Several are stating 12 to at least 20 inches of snow. The mets in Baltimore are a lot more conservative 6 to 12...I have no idea why there is such a wide difference. These are forecasts that include the DC/Balt region.
