Winter Storm Clobbering the Eastern Seaboard

January 4, 2018
Winter Storm Grayson is clobbering the Eastern Seaboard with blizzard conditions, damaging coastal flooding, and destructive winds that are leading to increasing power outages in New England as fresh bitter cold Arctic air settles in through the weekend.
Happening Now
Whiteout conditions continue to lash an expansive swath from the Jersey shore and New York City Tri-State area to parts of New England as Grayson continues to intensify.
The storm has apparently undergone bombogenesis, rapidly intensifying in strength to rival that of a hurricane. Operations for various airports have been disrupted, including: Baltimore Washington (BWI), Charlotte (CLT), Greenville/Spartanburg (GSP), Jacksonville (JAX), Norfolk (ORF), Raleigh Durham (RDU), Richmond (RIC), Washington Reagan (DCA), Philadelphia (PHL), New York/LaGuardia (LGA), and more, according to several major airlines.
Additionally, while the ports of Charleston and Savannah have reopened, ocean terminals in the Port of Virginia are closed for the day. Cargo movement may be impacted in the Eastern states through the week—KWE offices in New York, Philadelphia, and Boston have also closed due to the harsh weather.
KWE will continue to monitor the situation and post updates.
