Public Information Statement

Statement as of 5:38 PM EST on February 08, 2016


... Blizzard of February 8th 2016 in southeast New England...

Blizzard conditions were reached at six locations in southeast New
England on Monday February 8th 2016.

The definition of a blizzard is that falling and/or blowing snow
reduces visibility to below a quarter of a mile along with winds
that frequently gust to 35 mph or more... and that these conditions
are the predominant reported condition for 3 consecutive hours.

When reviewing whether a particular observation location had
blizzard conditions... we counted visibilities equal to a quarter
of a mile since that is quite low for an automated visibility
sensor to be able to detect.

Six locations are listed below along with when the blizzard
conditions occurred:

Nantucket MA... blizzard conditions occurred for a period of 5
hours and 3 minutes from 920 am to 223 PM on February 8th.

Marthas Vineyard MA... blizzard conditions occurred for a period of
4 hours and 42 minutes from 903 am to 145 PM on February 8th.

Chatham MA... blizzard conditions occurred for a period of 4 hours
and 57 minutes from 914 am to 211 PM on February 8th.

Hyannis MA... blizzard conditions occurred for a period of 4 hours
and 39 minutes from 917 am to 156 PM on February 8th.

Falmouth MA... blizzard conditions occurred for a period of 4 hours
from 1115 am to 315 PM on February 8th. Gusts at 1055 am were
only 33 mph... below criteria. If meeting criteria... then blizzard
conditions would have been observed from 1015 am to 315 PM for a
period of 5 hours.

Plymouth MA... blizzard conditions occurred for a period of 3 hours
and 44 minutes from 925 PM to 109 PM on February 8th.

One other location either had near-blizzard conditions but missing
data which made it impossible to evaluate.

Marshfield MA... blizzard conditions occurred from for a period of
2 hours and 30 minutes from 1255 PM to 325 PM on February 8th. The
1225 observation was missing... but should this have been an
observation meeting blizzard criteria... then blizzard conditions
would have been met.
