If you mean the worst snowstorm in 90 years in Washington DC, try the BBC website for pictures and weatheronline has the GFS for north America.

As regards the latest GFS output, certainly looking like much colder air into the SE of England than the other two main models were going with this morning. Having said that, I find it very difficult to believe a model several days out, when it has got the starting point wrong. It's supposedly overcast here at the moment, but it has actually been sunny all day.

I've been in New York when it's been feet under Snow. You really don't understand Cold until you have stood by the Hudson with a Northerly Wind. It does not matter how many layers of clothing you wear, it rips right through them.

This storm reminds me of '91 when my Husband was stranded on a plane in JFK for 9hrs, just sitting on the runway!! They could not clear the runway enough for planes to leave.

They got everyone off eventually and he got a lovely free ride home on Concorde the following day!!

Don't envy them at all. When this sort of thing happens with 3ft or more, power lines break with the weight of the Snow, then you have no heating, lighting etc and people die of the cold.

:rolleyes::cold: :cold:

massive amounts of snow and major disruption in parts. lots and lots of people without power now sad.gif

http://news.bbc.co.u...cas/8502700.stm

Hundreds of thousands of people remain without power in Washington DC and nearby states after a blizzard blanketed the area with record snows. Electricity was cut to at least 300,000 homes as the snow felled trees, and cut power lines. Emergency workers are struggling to restore power.

Washington got up to 2ft (61cm) of snow, one of the heaviest snowfalls in decades.

The storm disrupted transport from West Virginia to southern New Jersey.

A record 3ft (91cm) of snow fell on Maryland.

Looks like more snow is on the way for some of those areas, maybe up to an extra 10 inches in DC but 12-16 (Maybe 20) inches is possible for Philadelphia upto New York.

WASHINGTON — Road crews, power company workers and plain old homeowners with shovels struggled in gleaming sunshine on Sunday to clean up from a weekend of record snowfall here, but they faced little hope of returning to normalcy soon because five or more inches was forecast within days.
Even as the department was laboring to clear out the remains of the snowstorm that hit the region on Friday and Saturday, officials were looking over two forecasts that predicted more snow on Tuesday. One called for 5 to 10 additional inches, the other for 6 to 12 inches

Clearly not much interest on this it would seem. If anyone does take a look rough amounts will likely to be 30cms for washington dc, philly 48cms and newyork 29cms from this storm. Those that enjoyed the snow at first over there might be getting sick of it soon. Next major storm maybe as soon as the start of next week. :)

Think we maybe to concerned with our own winter storm by then. :):D :D

Some people here know that I'm probably snows biggest fan (behind Terminal Moraine reglaciations a tad too far) and was just wondering if there is even a remote chance of us getting any of this insane snow withing the next few months. That 38" is looking perfect, but too give me everything I want 5ft-10ft would be nice. Anyway I'm just getting the plane back from doo-da land and just want to know if we could get 20" this year?

By the way I have considered moving to the states but unfortunately I'm only 14 and my mum doesn't approve.

Interesting, I hope they get the photos

Florida has the same problem that we have when it comes to snow

Predictions of an inch of snow were enough to close schools in the Florida

    Heat building - But not before a northwestern soaking

    The weather has thrown up two things to focus on during the coming hours and days. First the rain across the north and especially northwest of the UK, with some heavy, persistent downpours today in western Scotland in particular. Second, the build of heat later this week from the south, with temperatures forecast to rise into the mid-thirties, for some at least, by Friday. Read the full update here
