Analysis of the March 13-14 Nor'easter Near It's Peak Intensity! (credit: Meteorologist Jordan Rabinowitz)
DISCUSSION: As of early on the morning of March 14th, a major winter storm got cranking towards its point of peak intensity. This period of time was characterized by intense precipitation rates (i.e., both in the colder and warmer sections of this storm's associated precipitation shield) moving across semi-coastal as well as more interior sections of New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, eastern Pennsylvania, and beyond. At certain points, there were confirmed hourly snowfall rates of between 2 and 4 inches per hour. Thus, this was a very high-impact winter weather event which impacted millions of people across the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast over the past 24 to 36 hours.
