Big Nor’ Easter Snow Hits East Coast This Weekend (Jan 22 – 24, 2016)

Meteorologist Rob Guarino reports from Syracuse for a SnowPlowNews update. Syracuse is getting dumped on while in the midst of a heavy lake squall. Current models are indicating a big snow storm coming to the East coast region this weekend.



It’s pretty safe to say, “we called it”. The first real snow storm of the season is on its way to the East coast and should arrive early this weekend. The question is, “how big will this one be”?

The European forecast model has been the most consistent over the last few days while the other models are starting to line up. All indications are pointing to this being the ‘real deal’. As the system moves in from the Southeast and the two jet streams come together, we’ll have a pretty nasty storm to deal with.
