I was hoping someone could answer my question...

The impending snowstorm out east has peaked my curiosity (because of snow volume only, I know the setup and conditions are probably completely different and unrelated).

Living in the midwest, we don't see massive snowstorms very often. 1978 is really the only true Blizzard that I know of. I wasn't born yet when this hit, so I've never experienced this type of weather event in my lifetime. I know it was a pretty rare occurrence and my question is "Why?" (topographic, geographic location, etc.) I've read about how it happened: 2 low pressure systems merged and formed a super-storm. But, what prevents this from happening more often? Is it just the timing of low systems not being synced up, or something more? I know that someday it will likely happen again, but is it really a "100-year-storm" rarity?

Just curious! smile.gif

Thank you to anyone who takes on answering this.
