    Nor'easters are sooooo amazing! Only thing that rivals them are polar lows and lake-effect, but it's uncomparable watching them slide across the east coast.

    Brilliant snowfall for October; halloween is going to feel really cool over there if it lies for 2 days now. But with the very warm sst's and cold air- a lot of snow is going to fall.

SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...LATEST WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS THAT INTENSE VORTICITY CENTER/SHORTWAVE TROF HAS DROPPED INTO BASE OF LARGER SCALE TROF AND HAS NOW BEGUN LIFTING NE INTO S WV/W VA. BACKING AND HIGHLY DIFFLUENT FLOW AHEAD OF THIS SYSTEM HAS INCREASED LARGE SCALE ASCENT OVER THE REGION DURING THE LAST SIX HOURS AND CLOUD PATTERN HAS BEGUN TO TAKE ON CLASSIC COMMA HEAD WITH MID-LEVEL DEFORMATION AXIS EXTENDING ACROSS PA. IT APPEARS AS THOUGH DRY SLOT ASSOCIATED WITH ABOVE MENTIONED VORTICITY CENTER/JET STREAK WILL CONTINUE LIFTING NE THROUGHOUT THE AFTERNOON AND PUSH OVER THE DCA AREA AND TOWARDS S NJ BY LATE THIS AFTERNOON. THIS WILL LIKELY PLACE THE BEST COMBINATION OF FRONTOGENESIS AND INSTABILITY ALONG AN AXIS FROM CNTRL PA ENE TOWARDS E CNTRL PA AND INTO N NJ/S NY AND THE CATSKILLS REGION OVER THE NEXT THREE TO SIX HOURS.

CURRENTLY, THE MOST IMPRESSIVE OF THESE BANDS APPEARS TO BE ORIENTED FROM JUST N OF JST ENE TO VIC OF UNV AND THEN ENE TOWARDS VIC OF AVP.

    Bearing in mind it has only snowed in October in New York four times since the 1800's, it's snowed more in London in October then it has in New York so this is really unusual.

    Previous record was only about an inch set in central park. Already at 2 inches with 6-9 expected there. Westchester, NY is expecting over a foot.

    It's just a low from the south west I think

    Is this a nor'easter or just a low venturing up from the sw?

    Same thing, yes it is a nor'easter.

    They either get nor'easters (unless the low comes too far west/north) or they get lows traveling W-E across Canada (hence why they can get lake effect snow).

    Manhattan currently has gusts to 21mph, NE wind and snow.

    Last time I checked nor'easters originated in the Atlantic?

    Nor'easters are lows coming from the south west. They form in the gulf of mexico, get loads of precipitation as it tracks across the east coast. It pulls in a lot of cold arctic air as they drive north and give quite cold air to the eastern seaboard area; sometimes delivering copious amounts of snow.
