A powerful Nor'easter is winding up along the Mid-Atlantic coast of the U.S. this morning, and stands poised to deliver the Washington D.C. region its second huge winter storm of the season tonight and Saturday. While the Nor'easter will affect a relatively small portion of the coast compared to other historic storms, a narrow region of Virginia, Maryland, Washington D.C., Delaware, and New Jersey should see two feet of snow, and three feet are possible in the higher elevation areas to the west of Washington D.C. If the snow amounts top 20.5" in Washington D.C., it will rank as that city's second largest snowstorm on record. Blizzard warnings are posted for Delaware and southern New Jersey, including Atlantic City, where winds will increase to 30 - 35 mph on Saturday, with gusts to 50 mph. Snowfall rates of 2 - 3 inches per hour will create whiteout blizzard conditions near the coast, and snowfall amounts should approach two feet. Lesser snow amounts near a foot are expected in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, and 4 - 8 inches is expected in New York City.


The top 10 snowstorms on record for Washington, D.C.:

1. January 27-28, 1922 ... 28 inches
2. February 11-13, 1899 ... 20.5 inches
3. February 18-19, 1979 ... 18.7 inches
4. January 6-8, 1996 ... 17.1 inches
5. February 15-18, 2003 ... 16.7 inches
6. February 11-12, 1983 ...16.6 inches
7. December 19-20, 2009 ... 16.4 inches (Snowpocalypse)
8. February 15-16, 1958 ... 14.4 inches
9. February 7, 1936 ... 14.4 inches
10. February 16-18, 1900 ... 14.3 inches

This weekend's Nor'easter is the second huge winter storm to affect the nation's capital this winter. The December 19, 2009 Nor'easter produced a record 24-hour snowfall in Washington, D.C. and Clifton Forge, Virginia, where nearly 2 feet (61 cm) of snow accumulated. Some interior areas of West Virginia saw 30 inches (76 cm) of snow. The storm broke the record for the amount of snow in a single event in December at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, where 16.3 inches (41 cm) of snow accumulated. The storm was the 6th-greatest snowfall in D.C. history. In Philadelphia, snowfall reached 23.2 inches (59 cm), surpassing the 21 inches (53 cm) snowfall of February 11 - 12, 1983, as the city's second-largest, and breaking a 100-year-old record for the largest single December storm, set on December 25 - 26, 1909 (20.2 inches). The largest storm in Philadelphia history was the North American blizzard of 1996, which produced 30.7 inches (78 cm) of snow.

Have a great Super Bowl weekend, everyone!

Here's the GIF for 2001-2009.

Note: 2005 looks to disappear because it is the only increased trend year-to-year. It is right on the max likely IPCC line, which is another interesting obs, in terms of IPCC methodology. Just my thinking out loud on that one.

I hope they have a natural gas stove or a fireplace to keep warm. If not the DC area has opened warming stations around the area.

If you are not able to safely transport yourself to the shelter please call 301-609-3435 and personnel will attempt to reach you and provide transport to the shelter.


They'll be fine. Other sections of base have power and friend of hers in one of those areas if necessary.

Haiti relief supplies stall in shipping limbo

In this Feb. 4, 2010 photo, stacks of boxed donated goods are stored at the Notre Dame d'Haiti Catholic
By JENNIFER KAY, Associated Press Writer %u2013 Sat Feb 6, 12:27 pm ET

MIAMI Cases of bottled water and cardboard boxes full of blue jeans, diapers and cans of tuna are piled a several feet high in Ruth Estriplet's living room. The charity worker doesn't want to stack anything above her head so that she can see what's in the boxes.
What she can't see is a way to get all the items to Haiti.

More than three weeks after the earthquake, donated goods are accumulating at small charities, sitting in shipping limbo because of costs and a complex web of transportation logistics. The heaps of donations are evidence that many people ignored the advice to just give cash.

Estriplet and other charities opted to collect items because it has a more personal touch. She is specifically gathering donations for her hometown of Carrefour, a devastated suburb of Port-au-Prince. But it's not clear how she's going to get the goods there.
"We're open to anyone who has an idea on how to do this, and we're taking any suggestions," said Estriplet.

Almost immediately after the quake hit, large organizations said money was the best way to help. It has never been easy to get supplies into Port-au-Prince, and the tremor has made things much worse.

Aid workers in Port-au-Prince have complained that red tape, transportation bottlenecks, corruption and a fear of violence has slowed the distribution of food, medicine and other supplies.

In Brooklyn, N.Y., pet groomer Perfect Paws is holding onto the sandals, baby aspirin and canned goods the business collected unless a traveling aid worker has room in a suitcase for them. The store posted a sign in a window soliciting donations, but will now sit on the items until the bottleneck eases, said owner Tom Vasquez.

Some charities have found ways around the logjam by piggybacking on a larger organization or sending shipments to other Haitian ports or the Dominican Republic. The Rev. Reginald Jean-Mary, pastor of Notre Dame d'Haiti in Miami, has given boxes of cooking oil, rice, water and beans to Food for the Poor, but each shipment costs the international relief charity $5,000 to transport to Haiti.
Cash donations buy much more, like flights into the Dominican Republic for doctors and nurses and trucks to drive over the border with stoves, cooking pots and ingredients for hot meals, Jean-Mary said.

"We plan on doing that more, until the ports can be open," he said. "The only way in I see right now is the Dominican Republic."
As of Wednesday, more than $644 million has been donated in the U.S. to major organizations engaged in Haiti relief efforts, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy. More than a third of the money has gone to the American Red Cross.

Still, many Haitian-Americans say they want to make sure help gets directly to people who need it.

Asking just for cash can put off, for example, schoolchildren who want to send bandages to injured victims, said Hannah Belkovic of Massachusetts-based Partners in Development, which is working to get medical supplies and other in aid in Haiti.

"The connection is lost, somehow, in what they are actually participating in," she said.
The charity's staff stuff their suitcases with as many bandages, rolls of gauze and antibiotics as they can, while the bulk of their donated supplies await shipping.
Michelle Lacourciere, director of the San Francisco-based Sirona Cares Foundation, was collecting toothpaste, food, crutches, school supplies and travel-sized toiletries even before the earthquake struck. The items were supposed to ship out free through the Air Force, but the quake hit and now she's unsure exactly how she will get the more than 6,000 square feet of items to Haiti.

But she and the other charities are optimistic it will work out.

"I understand that no one else will take goods," Lacourciere said. "If I'm the only one who will take them, then I'm glad that I'm doing it."

While I put together a cool gif animation, here is the 2000-2006 graph (glad I did the exercise). Dead center, as it should be. If you can't predict what is already known, that is a definite problem.

I have made the exact same observation about NHC and hurricane cones and those that say they are "spot on." Well, yes, at that particular point. It is no different.

Don't get me wrong, NHC has greatly improved their track forecasts as evidenced by the tighter 3-day period cone, which is 67% certainty. The IPCC's cone, however, has been getting larger, not smaller.

Seems about right.

One of the locals mentioned this morning that Reagan-National Airport is a really crummy place to measure for DC (paraphrasing here). I'm not sure where this unofficial NWS measurement was taken.

I'm going to try to tromp out to a main street now to see if it's possible to get the dogs something that resembles a walk. They may not be happy with the ventured outing, but they're miserable without one.

Last post from me on the subject. Look at the graph from the IPCC AR4 in post #604. Look specifically at the projection for scenario A2. Do you really think that that's a projection of a linear increase in temperatures?



You don't get it do you? It has nothing to do with how the actual temps occur, linear or otherwise. I am not representing that temps will rise that way. It is a comparison of actual vs. projected temperature trend.

It will be 1.8-4.0 hotter according to the projections or not. But, if they are already way behind, those have to be even STEEPER to make it up.

As an example, and as I have said many times that the next 10 years will be telling, by 2020, it should be up to .5 compared to 2000 according to the IPCC models... your own graph.

Unless something changes drastically, that will only be at about .2.

It is trending in the wrong direction.

Request re blizzard: Where, on WU or elsewhere, can I find a map of snow depths as of, say, noon today? I know Long Island, NY was spared the brunt of it, but I'd like to get a sense of where I could take the kids tomorrow. The current WU snow depth map is from yesterday and shows no snow east of Manhattan.

not sure if this has been mentioned, but with the big snows on the east coast, this has become the 1st winter season in recorded history that Philadelphia has received at least 20 inches of snow with 2 storms.

Also, All-time biggest snows in Philly (Top 3)
1. Blizzard of 1996: 30.7 inches
2. Blizzard of 2010: 28.5 inches*

So I went outside, told him I had WUed about him and told him the plan (didn't want to take time making hot chocolate). AND it worked, he came in. Don;t know if it was the publicity on WU or the thought of making some hot chocolate or what, but it worked. He's in and looks like crap. Head soaked, hypothermic, and a little incoherent. We will watch him close and can have him at Fairfax Hospital in five minutes, but I think he will be okay. Thanks Bordonaro

Have his wife go run a lukewarm bath, give him something like fruit juice, Gatorade, no alcohol and no caffiene. Have his wife take his temperature. If it is below 93F, he needs to go to the emergency room, he needs to dry put on some dry clothing, if he refuses to take a bath.


Oh, gee, seems Bob was on EMS duty; good job, btw.
I was taking my own pre-emptive afternoon hot bath (so nice)...snow is slowing down; think we could actually dodge the bullet but I'm not counting on it because of winds.

Looking at the pattern it appears as if the New England will miss most storms to there south for the next few weeks. This means more big storms for the Mid Atlantic and Southeast coast. Infact maybe a nor easter along the NE FL coast extending up to the Outerbanks about 9 or 10 days down the road.
yep with jet stuck till after feb 25 by then severe in full swing then a slow rise north in storm track till spring on mar 21 42 days from now mid atlantic will pass the all time high for snow by then

OK, obviously your graphs have very little to do with IPCC projections. And for the record the exact, not taken out of context, quote from AR4 is:

"For the next two decades a warming of about 0.2°C per decade is projected for a range of SRES emissions scenarios. Even if the concentrations of all GHGs and aerosols had been kept constant at year 2000 levels, a further warming of about 0.1°C per decade would be expected. Afterwards, temperature projections increasingly depend on specific emissions scenarios.

How does the next two decades turn into the next one hundred years?

If you care to have a discussion based on what's actually in AR4, I'm all for it. If you're going to continue to make stuff up based on what you'd like people to think is in AR4 - presumably because your goal is to discredit the IPCC - well, good luck with that. Folks like you have been trying to discredit the IPCC for a couple of decades now. It hasn't worked so far but some folks just seem to enjoy tilting at windmills.




And what, specifically, am I making up?

Best estimates and likely ranges for global average surface air warming for six SRES emissions marker scenarios are given in this assessment and are shown in Table SPM.3. For example, the best estimate for the low scenario (B1) is 1.8°C (likely range is 1.1°C to 2.9°C), and the best estimate for the high scenario (A1FI) is 4.0°C (likely range is 2.4°C to 6.4°C). Although these projections are broadly consistent with the span quoted in the TAR (1.4°C to 5.8°C), they are not directly comparable (see Figure SPM.5). The Fourth Assessment Report is more advanced as it provides best estimates and an assessed likelihood range for each of the marker scenarios. The new assessment of the likely ranges now relies on a larger number of climate models of increasing complexity and realism, as well as new information regarding the nature of feedbacks from the carbon cycle and constraints on climate response from observations.

That's 1.8 to 4.0... exactly what the graphs portray.

If you're going to continue to make stuff up based on what you'd like people to think is in AR4 - presumably because your goal is to discredit the IPCC - well, good luck with that. Folks like you have been trying to discredit the IPCC for a couple of decades now. It hasn't worked so far but some folks just seem to enjoy tilting at windmills.




They don't? What is the IPCC projected most likely range?

Quoting Bordonaro:


Have his wife go run a lukewarm bath, give him something like fruit juice, Gatorade, no alcohol and no caffiene. Have his wife take his temperature. If it is below 93F, he needs to go to the emergency room, he needs to dry put on some dry clothing, if he refuses to take a bath.


Man, do I not miss that. And it always snowed on my birthday... 125' driveway + sidewalk.

Quoting Jeff9641:


I think Florida is in for a lot of rain late next week. What are your thoughts on this IKE?


Hoping to see a flake of snow here in the panhandle.

I agree...looks wet for Florida.

Quoting OuterBanker:
So I went outside, told him I had WUed about him and told him the plan (didn't want to take time making hot chocolate). AND it worked, he came in. Don;t know if it was the publicity on WU or the thought of making some hot chocolate or what, but it worked. He's in and looks like crap. Head soaked, hypothermic, and a little incoherent. We will watch him close and can have him at Fairfax Hospital in five minutes, but I think he will be okay. Thanks Bordonaro
