    Northeast Storm Deepens, Clobbers Cape Cod

    UPDATE 3 PM: We're now down to 955 mb with gusts to 102 mph!

    ORIGINAL BLOG 3/26 9 AM: The storm currently off the Northeast coast is not as strong as rumored by some computer forecasting models, but at 963 mb pressure is one of the strongest we've had this season near the U.S. and is the strongest anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere right now.


    The storm is battering Cape Cod with winds over 80 mph and heavy snow. "Bombogenesis" (with an >27 mb drop in pressure in 24 hours) has occurred.


    Waves are over 25 feet at the nearest buoy (off of Atlantic Canada) and rising FAST.


    One buoy off the coast of Portland, Maine, has a webcam. It only uploads images once per hour, but it was looking pretty dicey there around noon:


    Here are some additional maps showing the storm with pressure lines, satellite and radar data, wind gusts and spotter reports:
