Winter Storm Skylar third nor’easter in 2 weeks
Yet another nor’easter, Winter Storm Skylar, is impacting the north east coast of the United States today, and is expected to bring heavy snow accumulations to the region.
Winter Storm Skylar follows Riley (March 1-4) and Quinn (March 7). All three storms delivered high winds and heavy snow, and in the case of Riley, coastal flooding.
And like Riley, Winter Storm Skylar is considered a weather bomb: it has met the definition of bombogenesis, which refers to a rapidly intensifying area of low pressure. To meet the threshold, the storm’s central pressure must drop at least 24 millibars within 24 hours.
