February Storm Versus December Storm in Mid-Atlantic

Most Recent Storm

Just a quick post to show the snow depths in the Mid-Atlantic region following the most recent storm compared to the December storm…

The snow depth as of this morning (Feb 7, 2010):

Comparison

The main difference that I see is that the second storm had a larger area of very heavy snow, which is indicated by the dark blue color on the map. The dark blue area shows areas that had 20 or more inches of snow on the ground.

In addition, the very heavy snow from the second storm extended a little farther to the north into Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
