It's winter, but...a monster storm is coming.

And, as we now name winter storms, this one, a Nor’easter, is named Iola.

Big City Blizzards: Will This Storm (Iola) Be One?


A monster snowstorm is expected to slam into the Northeast on Monday and Tuesday, dumping what could be up to 3 feet of snow in Boston and New York, along with freezing rain and strong gusts possibly reaching hurricane level. The storm is expected to hit northern New Jersey through southern Connecticut and freeze Rhode Island and parts of Massachusetts.

By 5 p.m. ET Sunday, storm warnings had stretched to the Canadian border.

"This could be a storm the likes of which we've never seen before," said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. [CNN]

Honestly? Having grown up up there? I remember 2-3 foot snowfalls to or three times a year. Maybe that was a different timeline.

Stay safe, everyone up there!

NYC mayor on coming storm: 'The likes of which we've never seen'



ETA: Okay, so I was little and the snow just seemed higher!

The biggest snowfall on record in New York City was the storm of Feb. 11-12, 2006, that dropped 26.9 inches (68 cm), according to the city's Office of Emergency Management.


Also changed the title to remove politics!

If you can't handle cold and snow, move south. Simple math.

Except in Atlanta last year.
Those 6-8 hour drives/walks home were a bear.


Humanity has always used its mobility to settle where conditions are best for its temporary needs, from setting up residence near a plush grove of mongongo trees to retiring in a tropical paradise. The reasons are often economic: Shippers want a good port; drillers want to be over oil; power companies want a fast-flowing river to dam.

Pretty sure they had some epic level snow fall before and it was in excess of 3 feet. I think it was last winter.

The mayor is a clown.

Actually, in the city itself, it's hard to build up that kind of accumulation and it is rare. Getting the streets cleared when there's nowhere to put the snow is a huge challenge. With luck it'll melt quick/

Yeah, but they only get snow like last year a handful of times in a decade in Atlanta.

Looks like a beast of a storm stay warm and safe up there folks.

I know...but we're still traumatized down here. Snowpocalypse and all.

Don't get me wrong I wish them the best, and I freely admit to having no clue how to deal with snow in a city like that.

I've lived my entire life in the country, living somewhere like new York city would be similar to prison time for me.

Instead of fear mongering he needs to pre-position whatever extra assets he needs to deal with the situation. Have the national Guard prepare if it's going to be that bad.

Advise people on what to stock up on (before the storm is this close) help people help themselves, that said I still say he is a clown.

(note; I am stuck on my phone with 2G signal I can't dig to deeply, if he has done any of the above I apologize)

Sorry...in the video his news conference was next to what was maybe a snowplow and he was telling people to prepare and focus on safety. They know how to handle snow up there, but this is going to be a huge effort if the predictions are right.

DeBlasio's a moron. I'm certain there are New Yorkers in their 30s and above who can remember a storm like this in the city. He should realize if you have nothing to say, shut your mouth and go back to being a puppet in an overpriced suit.

Oh and DeBlasio, about 50 people spat on the ground when you showed up at the Mermaid Parade, these weren't the rich yuppies and spongers on welfare you try to cater to.

ZOMG I think it's Eye-ola...like Eye-sis! Like the eye on the pyramid!

a reply to: Yeahkeepwatchingme
I regret the error of my ways and the choice of news articles to post in that they mentioned the mayor and this is really more about the storm. I take full responsibility for this boner move and apologize to ATS for it.

ETA: The mermaid parade in June? WTH?

I grew up near Atlanta. Most years no or little snow. Imagine ten inches in Atlanta. We saw that in 93 in March, i was 16. That's what i compare deep south snow storms too and snowmaggedon wasn't it.

I know Yankees are a lot better equipped to deal with massive snow fall than we are and this one still looks intimidating. I hope y'all got a warm place, plenty of food, and maybe some booze up there. Probably gonna be inside a couple of days.

With a negative tilt front in place Boston may end up being the hardest hit city.
Wonder if the extra hype in NYC is a harbinger for an MSM event?

3 feet of snow is not unusual, its the "weather bomb" low off the coast that is a real concern. hurricane force winds will cause widespread power outages and real hardships for millions of people

one of the fall outs from sandy was nobody took the warnings very seriously. this has the potential to be a killer storm.

Yes, I've lived in NYC and I have seen the result of his stupidity. A statement like that is no surprise. And oh yeah, the storm. Blizzards are remarkably rare in the northeast. Currently stores on Long Island and NYC look like markets after Hurricane Katrina

Yep that was a fun one, I never made it home, road was blocked by 100 vehicles and no way around. Spent the night in my truck then walked the last 6 miles home. Yep it was a fun one

My youngest was one of the hundreds that spent the night at school she was safe and sound so all was good.

Looks like there are two storms? Iola and Juno? Now I'm cofused. Clipper and Nor’easter? Same thing? One coming from the Plains and Texas and heading NE and the other coming from the East?

It's gonna be 18-30 inches here in Boston. It's not fear mongering to say that it's going to be a bad storm, the winds are the bigger factor than the snow... I'm not sure about NYC totals for most amount dumped in a single storm but this is probably pretty close, we've had higher in Boston doesn't mean this isn't something to brace and prep for. Jeeze guys go easy on the people who's job it is to warn... This is how it's always been.
