The above model image is of precipitation type roughly 3 days out, superimposed on forecasted MSLP values. The MSLP values indicate that the GEM model is predicting this storm system to get as low as 967mb. While that is certainly strong, it pales in comparison to the 940mb observation in Superstorm Sandy. Regardless, this storm will have many impacts, including:
•Additional beach erosion
•Additional loss of power and other services
This is the 102 hour snowfall forecast from the latest GFS (American) model:
The reason I haven't covered this too much is because storms can leave you uninterested in similar events for a while. For example, after tracking the 2011 Chicago blizzard, I had no desire to forecast snow for a good 5 days after the event, and I think the same is happening here in the wake of Sandy. I apologize, and I want to cover it more, but I have a feeling there won't be too many updates as this system comes along.
