January 22-23, 2005 Snowstorm

A clipper type system moved into the Midwest on Friday, January 21 dumping 6 to 12 inches of snow. The low moved into Pennsylvania and weakened as secondary low formed along the New Jersey coast. The secondary low intensified as it moved east, passing just south of Cape Cod early Sunday. Snow developed across the Albany forecast area late Saturday morning and early in the afternoon. By the time it wound down around sunrise Sunday and average of 10 to 18 inches fell. Snowfall was even greater across eastern New England.
