Evolution Animation of #Blizzard2017.

#Blizzard2017 will be one for the record books.  This system was a powerful combination of two different atmospheric jets, combining in just the right location, at the right position, to induce a rapidily strenghtening low pressure system just offshore.  As the system pulls northward along the coast, its position will enable strong onshore winds bringing larges amounts of moisture.
