Looks like the RUC is bombing this thing out faster than the GFS? It has a 989 low off the NC coast, while at about the same time the GFS has it at 996.

I found a really neat late april storm from the kocin book. Occurred april 19 th 1983. What made this storm super rare is that snow reached all rhe way to the north carolina and virginia shores with 3 to 6 inches and new jersey had from 3 to as high as 12. Ne Pa winners with 20 inches and southern new york as well with 2 feet . Pretty amazing stuff I thought.


Very cool. Thanks!

Very nice. Wow.

Question...what's causing this storm to cut back inland near the Delmarva and take a track up in to Western NY, rather then continuing Northward up the coast as normal?


I dont see any nearby High pressures in Atlantic so maybe its the 500mb level pattern ?. Maybe a meteo can weigh in more.

Edit: Just saw JR's post. Thanks.

Just had 2 Second flashback. October 2011 cold air pushes eastward for perfect timing to create evap cooling and snow here.
Close, but no cigar this time.

Current temps in upper 30s and low 40s where it's forecasted to snow tonight.

Jim Cantore and Steve D just answered it on Twitter

JC: "strong digging jet on the backside of trough"

SD: "it's the position of the trough which goes negative and pulls the storm west like a sling shot"

It's occluding. Once the occlusion begins you will see the SLP pull to the NW while the main energy continues plowing on. Stacking of the ULL and SLP is another way of seeing it.

It's about time we finally get to observe a classic phase... this is one of the most amplified patterns we've had this entire season. It's also one of the only storms that actually has a negative tilt.

The RUC looks like it's intensifying this a bit too quickly IMHO. It also seems to have a little too much negative tilt when compared to the rest of the models.

We might have to change the title to this. It wont really be a Nor'Easter since winds are mostly coming from the SouthEast and storm is cutting back in at DelMarva.

No need to view this as anything other than a N'oreaster, accd'g to HPC

So snow can happen even in late april in the coastal plain .

Wow... who'd think that in late April coastal Virginia would see snow while Maine sees rain laugh.gif

The HRRR has it about the same as the RUC, but that should be no surprise.


4 hours later looking at 984mb due South of Cape May.
