  1. Third blizzard in a row in the US so far this March! California, New York and now the Northern Plains. Doesn’t look like snow is a thing of the past anytime soon.

  2. The local guys here in the Northeast are saying that there will be small bands up to 16 inches.That’s pretty good for a March storm.

  3. Maybe snow over more area. That previous storm was very strong offshore, however it wasn’t all snow in MassChussetts, though more area than forecast, this one might be more snow to the coast, have to wait and see, it snowed a lot more coastally with the last one than they thought, though.

  4. There are essentially no portable electric generators left for sale in the Northeast. Those that weren’t bought earlier for shipment to Puerto Rico have been snapped up by people left without power due to the last storm. Good luck if you lose power in this storm.

  5. Weather in Moscow: strong March frosts and the first spring thaw

    Video – At the end of last week, on March 1 and 2, when bad weather was raging in the UK, the Airbus A380-800 passenger liners that arrived at Birmingham airport were forced to land in extreme conditions.

  6. It looks like it’s snowed some in Chicago again already, plus the blizzard in the Dakotas, from the setup it could be quite a storm.
