Is it because of the wind threat possibly being under played due to the models not showing it?

      These things are tough.    SPC doesn't want to issue a severe box for these strongly-forced low-topped things with little lightning.    And you could argue that the overall high wind warning covers it, although that's for general synoptic winds and not a squall line.    LWX is on top of it - all they can really do is issue severe t-storm warnings.    I would think that if it holds together as it approaches DC metro, they'll issue the warnings way in advance.

Downeast Maine will get 33 inches of snow accompanied by 67 mph wind gusts. Pure Heaven! I'd be out jebwalking in a T-shirt

 

Those ppl better get their sh!t together and start shoveling that snow! Don't make me have to come up there and show them how to dig snow!

Worried for life and property or winds verifying? Serious question. :lol:

         Yeah, if it holds together, you're looking a widespread 60 mph gusts taking down trees and power lines while a lot of people are sleeping and unaware of the threat.

Jeb! 

It's Portland, ME. Not all of that is what has fallen in this storm, but it's ripping here. I'll be sure to keep jebwalking in your honor!

That is pretty damn low topped, there is a lot of lightning in Garret county but none near Hagerstown.

Post hundreds of pics or it never happened!

One question I have is why are you not up in Bar Harbor in the BLIZZARD WARNING? If I was gonna go on an epic blizzard jebwalk I'd be at the epicenter! I'd jebwalk in a T-shirt in zero visibilities in 5 inch an hour snow rates in 70 mph wind gusts!

Just walked outside.  Has to be the warmest NW wind in Feb in the history of the world.  That should be a bitter cold arctic blast. Almost balmy.

I know what you mean, I just walked out there to see what the wind was like, its pretty mild. Its gusting, and you can already hear that deep throated ROAR higher up, this storm means business

The latest RAP gets really good winds down pretty low (looking at BUFKIT from PSU site)

I would never expect such a wind burst around here without precip.  Watch some of us get a coating behind this stuff. :rolleyes:

 Lots of AFD's in New England making absolutely compulsive reading, and I am lovingly pasting them all into notepad, then I place em in my capacious flash memory. I had a 128 gig one just for AFDs, there are gonna be tons of memorable ones this spring:wub:

One would think NWS would consider changing the name of the warning to Severe Storm Warning as opposed to Severe Thunderstorm Warning. It always seems awkward when they issue one for storms which have very little chance of any T&L.

There is no such thing in SAME coding. So it's either a severe tstm warning or no warning.
