[quote:Luisport:MV8yMDM5MzAyXzM0MzI1MTE5XzY1MjgyNURG] First Hurricane Sandy, now Winter Storm Athena for the Eastern U.S. Posted by: Dr. Jeff Masters, 02:57 PM GMT em 07 de Novembro de 2012 Winter Storm Warnings are up for Southwest New Jersey, Northern Delaware, and Southeast Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia, PA, where Winter Storm Athena is expected to drop 3 - 5" of snow today through Thursday morning. Slushy accumulations of up to 1" are likely in Baltimore, and non-accumulating snow will fall as far south as Washington, DC. Athena, the season's first Nor'easter and first winter storm to get a name under The Weather Channel's new naming system, is spreading rain and high winds into Southern New Jersey and Eastern Long Island, NY this morning. Winds at buoy 44025, about 40 miles offshore from the coast of Central New Jersey, reached 36 mph, gusting to 45 mph, with a significant wave height of 12.5', at 9 am EST. Winds at Atlantic City, NJ gusted to 28 mph at 4 am EST, and the airport had picked up 0.13" of rain as of 9 am. Athena is building a storm surge that has already reached 2.2' at Atlantic City and 1.8' at New York City so far this morning. A storm surge of 2 - 3.5' is likely along the section of coast most heavily damaged by Sandy's storm surge, and battering waves up to 20' high will cause moderate beach erosion along much of the New Jersey and New York shoreline. The storm surge will cause minor to moderate flooding during this afternoon's high tide cycle near 1 pm EST, and again at the next high tide, near 1 am EST Thursday morning. Fortunately, the high tides this week will be some of the lowest of the month, since we are midway between the new moon and full moon. Wind gusts from Athena will likely reach 50 mph along the coasts of New Jersey and Southern Long Island, NY, and could hit 60 mph on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I expect that Athena's winds, rains, and wet, heavy snows will cause up to 50,000 new power outages today. As of early Wednesday morning, 676,000 customers were still without power in the wake of Hurricane Sandy (down from a peak of 8.5 million customers.) http://www.wunderground.com/blog/JeffMasters/comment.html?entrynum=2289 [/quote]
