A storm right out of the Mutara Sector could be heading our way - or it could miss us entirely. But weatherpeople are concerned enough that we've raised
shields the French Toast Alert Level to Yellow/Elevated.
Regardless of where the storm winds up, though, it's going to have some major "bombogenesis" - a scary word that means a dramatic drop in pressure - as the gathering clouds of a killer death storm begin to assemble.
As even the normally reserved forecasters at the National Weather Service note, one computer model shows a potential "EPIC SNOWSTORM/BLIZZARD FOR EASTERN NEW ENG" for Tuesday into Wednesday.
Gah! NWS, however, adds this particular computer model is a bit of an outlier, but then continues that, well, it's too early to say where this bombogenetic storm will head, although people on the Cape in particular should stay tuned for further details. But they add: "ACCUMULATING SNOW LIKELY ACROSS MUCH OF SNE."
The Weather Channel's Jim Cantore agrees, saying that if that one model does prove right, we could see "major blizzard" in the Boston area.
