It's slushy out there now, not icy, doesn't seem as cold as predicted.

It's actually too cold this morning for salt to work effectively. Going to be slick roads in places.

This is turning into a really big storm, but per the models, will stay off shore far enough that we won't have a repeat of the 2010 blizzard (complete with thunder-snow).

Below are two models showing a range of potential snow falls. The guys at Weatherbell think the storm will get dragged more West, giving us snow totals of about 6-12 inches. The storm may drop 60+ inches in parts of Maine and eastern Canada.

PSE&G prepares for approaching winter storm and record cold
Extra personnel and equipment at the ready


(NEWARK, N.J. – Jan. 3, 2018) Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G), New Jersey’s largest electric and gas utility, is preparing for an approaching storm system that is predicted to bring accumulating snow, gusty winds and record cold temperatures to the utility’s service territory beginning early Thursday morning.

“Although we prepare our system for bad weather year-round, we take every storm with the potential for outages seriously,” said John Latka, senior vice president of electric and gas operations for PSE&G. “We have additional personnel scheduled and on standby, with auxiliary equipment at the ready for this first storm of 2018.”

PSE&G also has extra personnel on hand to respond as quickly as possible and handle emergency requests. Both PSE&G’s appliance service business and call centers are prepared to respond to additional customer “no heat” calls as temperatures remain low during the next several days. From Christmas to New Year’s Day, PSE&G responded to more than 15,300 no heat calls – making it the busiest holiday week in nearly 20 years.

In anticipation of the storm, PSE&G is taking the following steps to ensure that the utility is ready to respond to resulting power outages:

Arranging for contractors, including tree crews, to assist the utility’s own skilled workforce.
Ensuring that additional supplies, including poles, transformers and other pole-top equipment, are on hand.
Refueling all vehicles.
Testing generators at utility locations.
Coordinating with county and municipal emergency management personnel to inform them of outages and expedite restoration efforts.
PSE&G urges its customers to be cautious during and after the storm:

Downed wires should always be considered “live.” Do not approach or drive over a downed line and do not touch anything that it might be in contact with.
To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, do not run any gasoline powered engine, including generators and snowblowers, in a garage or any other enclosed space.
Customers should report downed wires or power outages by calling PSE&G’s Customer Service line at 1-800-436-PSEG. Also, customers can report outages at www.pseg.com or by texting “OUT” to 4PSEG (47734). The utility’s mobile-friendly website includes an “Outage Map” that is updated every 15 minutes and displays the location and status of power outages in PSE&G’s service area.

Depending on how far West the storm tracks, we could get 3" or we could get 20+ inches. Its so cold that the conversion of water to snow is pushing 1 inch:20 inch.

The latest Euro model shows extreme cold after this Nor'Easter pulls away. Possible -10F on Saturday north and west of NYC.

(Still a lot of unknowns - there should be a little more certainty later on today)

Resized Image


By Jeff Goldman | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

A storm that could dump up to 7 inches of snow in parts of New Jersey and pack wind gusts of up to 45 mph starting Wednesday night into Thursday morning's commute continues to track up the east coast.

Forecasters are increasingly confident the chances of the storm moving far enough off the coast and missing New Jersey completely have diminished.

South Jersey and areas along the Shore are expected to get hit the hardest with 4 to 7 inches, while northwestern parts of the state may dodge the snow almost entirely. The interior portion of the state should receive about 3 inches but a westward shift of the system could push those amounts higher.
