We were recently hit with snow. A lot of snow. Winter storm Grayson definitely didn’t hold out on us, that’s for sure.
We definitely didn’t get the worst of it. Maine reported 20 inches, it snowed a consistent 2-3 inches per hour for five hours straight in New York yesterday, and Boston got not only 13 inches of snow, but flooding in parts of the city as well.
Weather Channel says “Grayson’s intensifying low will track north-northeast off the Northeast Seaboard before plowing into Atlantic Canada into Friday. This explosive development is what meteorologists call bombogenesis, defined by a rapid drop in atmospheric pressure of 24 millibars or more in a period of 24 hours – criterion that’s been well satisfied. In over four decades-worth of data compiled by Dr. Andrea Lopez Lang from SUNY-Albany and David Roth from NOAA’s Weather Prediction Center, this bombogenesis rate of 59 millibars in 24 hours through 10 a.m. EST January 4 was a record magnitude for this part of the western Atlantic Ocean, dating to 1976.” (Source)
