Difficult Travel Conditions Across the South; Snow for the Pacific Northwest and Rockies

Occasional rain, heavy at times, will affect areas of the south through today. This storm lifts northward on Sunday across the Great Lakes region with rain and gusty winds for the eastern third of the country. Meanwhile, a storm approaching the Pacific Northwest will bring a wintry mixture, gusty winds and heavy snow into the Cascades and northern Rockies through Sunday. Read More >

Overview

A strong coastal storm affected the eastern mid-Atlantic and Northeast US on January 28-29, 2022. As a deep trough moved into the Southeast US, low pressure began to develop off the coast of the Carolinas during the afternoon of January 28. A high amplitude upper level steering pattern caused the developing low to begin moving north-northeastward, paralleling the US East Coast. In a classic Nor’easter evolution, the developing low phased with a frontal system over the mid-Atlantic as it moved north. This frontal system had brought light snow to portions of the mid-Atlantic during the day on the 28th, and it also brought a fresh influx of cold air to the region. As it phased with the developing coastal storm, the coastal storm began to explosively intensify as it passed offshore of Delmarva. The strengthening storm spread precipitation back into the region, which fell as all snow thanks to the fresh injection of Arctic air. With the center of the low passing a few hundred miles offshore, the heaviest snow fell near the coast, from the night of the 28th through the morning of the 29th. In eastern New Jersey and coastal Delaware, several hours of heavy snow resulted in a widespread swath of 12 to 18 inches of snow. Amounts steadily tapered off heading further inland, though some snow fell in all of the local area. In addition, with the rapid strengthening of the low, strong winds also occurred, especially near the coast. Gusts of 40 to 50 mph with a few over 60 mph were observed. The combination of strong winds and heavy snow led to whiteout conditions along the coast, and was sufficient for blizzard criteria to be met along both the New Jersey coast and the Delaware Beaches, making this the first blizzard to affect any portion of the region since 2018. Snow gradually lost intensity and came to an end during the afternoon of the 29th, as the still strengthening low continued moving northward, bringing blizzard conditions and even heavier snow to southeast New England.

The combination of the strong area of low pressure and strong winds also brought elevated water levels along the coast. However, water levels were somewhat tempered by prevailing winds during the event being more northerly than easterly. In addition, the highest surge values occurred outside the times of the highest astronomical tides. Because of this, only minor coastal flooding was observed along the Atlantic coast and back bays. The storm also brought significant marine impacts, with a combination of storm force winds, high seas, and freezing spray.

Public Information Statement
National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ
1111 AM EST Sat Jan 29 2022

...BLIZZARD CONFIRMED ON NEW JERSEY COAST AND DELAWARE BEACHES...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly, New Jersey can confirm 
that blizzard criteria was met last night and this morning along the 
coastal strip of New Jersey and along the Delaware Beaches. This 
includes areas such as the Monmouth County coast, Long Beach Island, 
Atlantic City, Cape May, and all of the Delaware Beaches. A blizzard 
is defined as three or more hours of visibility reductions to one 
quarter mile or less due to falling or blowing snow, and sustained 
winds or frequent gusts of 35 mph or greater.

Further analysis will be conducted in the days ahead to determine 
which additional inland zones, if any, reached blizzard criteria 
during this event. Further analysis will also be conducted to 
determine the exact start and end times of blizzard conditions in 
the areas where such conditions have already been confirmed.

Notable Wind, Tidal, and Marine Data

 

A few notable graphs of coastal and marine weather impacts are presented below. As is typical for a strong Nor'easter, high winds, coastal flooding, and marine weather impacts were all present during this event.

 

Environment Environment
Figure 1: Graph of sustained winds (blue line) and gusts (red line) on January 29, 2022 at the Lewes, DE Weatherflow site. Numerous gusts over 50 mph and a few over 60 mph were observed. Figure 2: Same as Fig. 1, for the Barnegat Inlet Light, NJ Weatherflow site, showing similar patterns to Lewes.

Figure 3: Plot of significant wave heights at NDBC Buoy 44009 during the January 28-29 storm. The buoy is located about 20 miles east of Fenwick Island, DE. Figure 4: Same as Fig. 4, for NDBC Buoy 44066, located about 80 miles east of Long Beach Island, NJ. Figure 5: Combined plot of wind speed, gusts, and air pressure at Buoy 44009 during the event.
Environment Environment
Figure 6: Plot of ice accretion values at the Sandy Hook, NJ NOS gauge (SDHN4) during the January 28-20 event. This can be used as a proxy for freezing spray accumulation. The data shows that ice accretion rates near to above 1"/hr occurred for several hours. These are significant and uncommon values for our region. Figure 7: Same as Fig. 6, for Ship John Shoal (SJSN4) on Delaware Bay. Ice accretion values here were not as large but still quite significant and long duration.
Environment Environment
Figure 8: Tidal hydrograph for Delaware Bay at Lewes (LWSD1) during the January 28-20 event. Water levels at Lewes peaked just slightly beneath the Moderate flooding threshold. Figure 9: Same as Fig. 8, for Great Egg Harbor Bay at Ocean City (ONCN4. Minor flooding also occurred here. In addition, northwest flow after the storm caused a significant drop in water levels, and the station nearly reached its "low water" crtieria on the night of January 30.
