Stormy Northeast and Canada

Snow showers will spread into the Northeast interior by Friday, while a snow storm could develop over northern Maine. The rapidly developing storm will hit eastern Quebec and Atlantic Canada pretty hard. The Weather Alternative forecast posted on Ocotber 23rd indicated that between November 14th and 19th Mars' retrogade movement carried the potential to generate stormy conditions over the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. The Weather Alternative also posted the following for November 16-19: A low-pressure system, probably located near Quebec, will affect the New England area.

The Meteorological Service of Canada today posted numerous weather warnings for eastern Canada similar to the following:

A low pressure system over new-hampshire is moving northeastward while intensifying and will lie over Sept-Îles Friday evening.This system will affect mostly central and eastern Québec today and Friday.
Regions west of the track of the low pressure system will receive significant snowfall amounts...

This forecast called for cold air to sweep into the Northeast generating storms. The map at left is for the 14th. Accuweather reported:

A cold front passing through tonight (14th) and Thursday will quickly sweep out that mild air, causing rain to fall. Today's comfortable air will be replaced by a wintry blast, complete with noticeably cooler air, gusty and chilly winds and snow showers across the interior.

I am unable to post the results of the some of the forecasts from November 5-12 since I was out of the country and had no Internet service available.

At the end of World War II, it was General Omar Bradley, addressing an Armistice Day crowd, who said: “We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. … The world has achieved brilliance without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants.”
