  1. Also, this Northeaster is months early compared to last several years, especially since it’s solid snow around DC, or appears to be by radar.

  2. No kidding! I am about 45 miles west of Virginia Beach, in Smithfield VA. Here we do not have blizzard warnings, but I have been in a blizzard and it sure does sound like it (too dark to see but the wind is sure blowing and snowing since dusk). Howling winds.

  3. i just looked at the TPW setting on nullschool earth
    that shows moisture levels in cloud etc
    its at 5kg per sqmetre on land
    the ocean is higher and the stormswirl looks nasty
