ALERT: The National Weather Service has issued numerous winter storm warnings including blizzard warnings for the area from Washington, DC through Pittsburgh, New York and most of New England starting late Sunday night, January 25 through late Tuesday afternoon, January 27.
A cold high pressure area over eastern Canada will be colliding with a low pressure area off Virginia causing huge amounts of Atlantic moisture to be chilled and the resulting snow and high winds will create near white out conditions. This will include some coastal flooding with very strong southeasterly winds. Some areas in the warning area could see over 24 inches of snow with significant drifting. This can potentially be a life threatening storm with loss of power in areas and roadways that will be impassable.
