January 23 11:30 AM- We are in the time of the storm now where the surface Low will be nearly stalled. This could last 3 to 6 hours, as the pressure deepens and it throws moisture back our way. The latest doppler radar image shows the heaviest snow dumping at rates over 2 inches per hour. This zone is on the outer reaches of the coastal storm, and as that does its thing, the band of heavy snow will pivot, and eventually pull back east when the Low begins to move east as well. There will be 30 to 40 inches of snow in some places when this is done.
- At this point, the places in the heaviest snow bands, will keep getting it. If your snow eased, it will pick back up during the afternoon. We are NOT done in the least.
- Another 1 Foot of new snow is possible through this evening.
- The blizzard is technically NOT a blizzard as of now. That criteria needs to be 3 hours in a row of 1 inch per hour snowfall rate AND 35 mph winds.
- Coastal Beach Erosion with winds 50mph or higher
