Snow Squall Warnings 2019 | N.J. and Pennsylvania Swept Under Fierce Snow Storm
Situation turned from bad to worse, air temperatures took a big nose dive down into the single digits on Wednesday night (30 Jan 2019) and then a series of fierce snow squalls hit New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
The squalls were rapid but ferocious, packing dominant winds, creating hazardous driving conditions and prompting the National Weather Service to issue a sequence of rare snow squall warnings.
Snow squalls are extreme bursts of intense snowfall that move quickly and often dump a fast coating of snow on the ground, creating slimy driving conditions. They also bring forcefull winds, which blow the snow sidelong, sharply dropping visibility for drivers.
Many snow squalls are like passing shots, sometimes losing power after 10 or 15 minutes, but some can last as longer as some eyewitness reports have come in claiming sessions of a hour or even longer.
Here’s a look at some of the huge snow squalls captured raw on camera as they swept across the effected regions on Wednesday.
