Good day everyone!
It appears most of the computer models are in fair agreement on this system coming up over the weekend! The only outlier at the moment is the ECMWF, which is further east with the system.
Based on the MSLP indicated in the model output, albeit this system should remain a little further offshore, I will not rule out some blizzard conditions for the extreme eastern portion of ares in New England and the NE. Current projected isobar spacing indicates a pretty hefty wind field, and winds of near 50-60 mph near the coast may not be ruled out. Conditions offshore are going to much worse and particularly dangerous for boaters and shipping. Sustained winds near the vicinity of 40N;55W COULD attain hurricane force, and seas could range 30-40 ft.
NWW3 WAVE HEIGHTS
Power outages could occur once again, with the strongest of winds closer to the coastal areas. Temperatures should pretty much plummet after the passage of this system, with freezing temps down into the northern 1/3 of the Florida Peninsula.
Have a great weekend. I’ll try to be on this weekend to post real time info on the system.
