Remnants of ‘super’ winter storm to dump ‘staggering amounts of rain’ on Southeast U.S.

February 23, 2013GEORGIAIt will be a messy weekend in the Northeast and the Deep South as the massive weather system that walloped 20 states with a snowstorm rolls off towards the Atlantic Ocean. A winter storm is expected to deposit up to 10 inches of snow in isolated pockets of western Massachusetts, and 6 inches to a foot in parts of southern Vermont and New Hampshire, and central Maine. This is not the same storm that blanketed the Great Plains, said CNN Meteorologist Pedram Javaheri, although it is part of the same overall system that spans the country from north to south. It will be much less intense, he said, and it should not affect the places hardest hit by the blizzard that plastered the Northeast two weeks ago, knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of customers. Boston will likely see a slushy mix of rain and snow that could lead to downed branches and power lines, Javaheri said. Rain will continue to soak the eastern United States from Washington, D.C., on down, especially Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. “Across the Southeast, some of the rainfall totals are going to be staggering,” said CNN Meteorologist Karen McGinnis. Parts of the central Southeast should get 4 — 6 inches of rainfall. The outgoing system will have made its mark on virtually the entire country from the southwest corner of California to central Maine, leaving its deepest imprint on Kansas. Wichita saw its second-highest storm snowfall total on record with 14.2 inches over two days, the National Weather Service said. The town of Russell in the state’s middle lay under a 22 inch layer of white by the time the storm roared by. Missouri was not far behind, with accumulations of around a foot in some places. The snow set a record at Kansas City International Airport, with 9 inches falling in a single day. The old record was 5.1 inches set in 2010. Some businesses and universities shut down Thursday as state officials urged residents to stay off the roads. The white blanket emptied the streets of Kansas City. –CNN

    The weather picture shows the Gulf stream as a non-participant in this storm front. If it were alive and active, wouldn’t there be resistance from the equator north, not letting this storm get by so easily? Maybe this isn’t right.

    Weather wars are in full effect. Which is a war waged by the banker mafia families, against the rest of humanity!
