30 Inch Hype: Don't Believe it!

Posted: January 30, 2014, 4:53 pm by mikem

Over the past few days, many have been asking about a 30 inch blizzard next week. My advice to you, is please don't believe it. Many of these blizzard rumors have roots in amateur weather facebook/twitter pages that just post whichever model produces the most snow. Most of these pages are created by those who do not have a degree in meteorology and just like the weather. Every operational forecaster on our staff (including the social media department) have either bachelor's or master's degrees in meteorology and that's why you will NOT find this storm currently mentioned in our media.

Mid-Winter Report Card

Posted: January 12, 2014, 4:18 am by mmurphy

Well the winter of 2013-2014 is just about at its half-way point. Meteorological winter is considered to be December, January and February; although winter weather will often linger into at least the first half of March. Based on the definition of meteorological winter the mid-point would be January 15th. With this in mind, I was curious how this winter "stacks up" so far. I'm sure anyone can tell you that this winter is off to a fast, very active start; all areas in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic have already seen several snow and ice events along with outbreaks of brutal cold.
