Episode Narrative An upper-level low passed through the Mid-Atlantic on the night of the 24th. The upper-level low combined with energy in the southern branch of the jet stream, causing low pressure to rapidly intensify over New England on the 25th into the 26th. Low pressure remained nearly stationary before finally weakening and moving off to the east on the 28th.

A northwest flow around the low triggered a prolonged period of upslope snow for locations along and west of the Allegheny Front. Gusty winds and locally heavy snow reduced visibility to near zero at times, especially on the night of the 25th into the 26th.
Event Narrative The combination of wind gusts over 35 mph along with visibility below one quarter mile due to snow and blowing snow resulted in blizzard conditions for locations along and west of the Allegheny Front.
