Strong March Storms
05:10 AM EST - 03 March 2001
For more information and discussion regarding the northeastern US storm, I recommending visiting Gary Gray's Millennium Weather at millenniumweather.com. Specifically his forecast discussion located here . Looks like there is a decent possibility for a unique major snowstorm up there, so good luck all in the north.
Currently, Southern Georgia and the panhandle are getting hit with some very strong storms...
Sometimes some very destructive storms can form outside of the tropical season. These storms sometimes are called "Noreasters", and a situation is developing where the mid-atlantic and Northeastern states may be under the gun on one of these over the next few days. Causing a lot of beach erosion as well as the potential for damage. The low now in the Gulf of Mexico has a chance at becoming one of these systems, that may cause a great deal of snow and a lot of wind in the northeastern US. It may give Florida a small bit of rain before heading up the east coast.
I'm not as well educated on these systems, but in the past some have been surprisingly powerful. Folks may want to keep watch on this one. West coast Floridians may want to keep watch for coastal flooding-- Especially towards the panhandle. Wind damage is also possible.
