972 millibars…landfall on MA coast

At 10pm the coastal storm was making landfall on the coast of Massachusetts near New Bedford with a central pressure of 972 millibars (28.70″).  It is interesting to note that just a couple days ago computer models were forecasting landfall on the New Jersey coast.  The 200 mile shift to the north means we’ve had much less snow, at least so far!

At midnight, a wind gust to 46 mph was recorded at Martin State airport with gust to 47 mph at Reagan National.  A High Wind Warning and a Winter Weather Advisory remain in effect overnight due to the possibility of wind gusts over 50 mph and 1-3″ of snow through Friday afternoon.
