Discussion

The threat for widespread power outages is very high today in the DC metro region given the expectation of wind gusts to 70 mph and the saturated grounds from recent rains which tend to weaken the root support system. As a result of intense high-latitude blocking to our north, this rapidly intensifying ocean storm will run into an “atmospheric brick wall” near Cape Cod, MA this morning and rather than taking the usual track for a nor’easter off to the east of Maine, it will be forced to the south. As it drops south, colder air is also plunging southward and so will the rain/snow line. The rain will likely mix with or change to sleet and/or snow at times today in the DC metro region, but the biggest factor from this powerhouse storm will be the extreme winds.
