As I write this, the system that produced the rain and wet snow over northern Ohio is phasing with the east coast system. This current radar loop (as of mid morning Friday) illustrates this beautifully.
Why are the snowfall amounts so high with this storm? The answer might lie in the well above normal sea surface temperatures in a few spots along the New Jersey coast up to Maine. This may add additional moisture into this already formed nor’easter.
