Massive Nor’easter expected to bring winds, snow, cold blast to Northeast for late March

Quote From Source:

As a massive winter storm at sea known as a Nor’easter prepares to skirts the Northeast coast of the USA, bringing with it high seas and bitterly cold weather in its wake, Dr. Ryan Maue writes:

Massive Nor’easter will develop a warm-core thru a seclusion process.

Compare previous image w/Hurricane Sandy– same 850-mb Wind speed & MSLP. Nor’easter wind field much stronger/larger.

[It is] maybe 4 times more powerful than Sandy based on integrated KE of wind field.

The biggest difference here is the track, Sandy made landfall in NYC, this nor’easter is not expected to there, but will skirt the coast and will make landfall later in Newfoundland, But, it will have a significant effect on the northeast USA due to its ability to transport air mass.

  • Pretty crazy to see a storm turn warm-cored this early in the season in that area though when I was going to school for meteorology and climatology, one of our books we had talked about Arctic hurricanes…basically huge storms that have warm-cores. They don’t happen very often thus many meteorologists don’t even know about them but they can create some pretty big storms.
