The February 5–6, 2010 North American blizzard, commonly referred to as Snowmageddon, was a Category 3 ("major") nor'easter and severe weather event. The storm's center tracked from Baja California Sur on February 2nd, 2010 to the East coast on February 6, 2010, before heading east out into the Atlantic. Effects were felt to the north and west of this track in northern Mexico, California, and the Southwestern, Midwestern, Southeastern, and most notably Mid-Atlantic States. Severe weather, including extensive flooding and landslides in Mexico, and historic snowfall totals in every one of the Mid-Atlantic states, brought deaths to Mexico, New Mexico, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland.

  • La tempête de neige du 1er au 6 février 2010 le long de la côte est des États-Unis et du Canada est un événement météorologique exceptionnel qui a affecté la Côte Est des États-Unis et celle du Canada. Elle fut surnommé Snowmageddon et a été classée comme tempête du Cap Hatteras de catégorie 3. La profonde dépression s'est formée aussi loin que la Californie, donnant des pluies diluviennes du nord du Mexique au sud-est des États-Unis, tout particulièrement dans les États de Caroline du Nord, Caroline du Sud et de Géorgie. En arrivant le long de la côte est des États-Unis, l'air froid venant du nord-ouest s'est engouffré dans le système et les précipitations se sont transformées en neige abondante et poudrerie rendant la visibilité nulle, un vrai blizzard de la Caroline du Nord aux provinces de l'Atlantique au Canada. Selon des météorologues, Washington, D.C. la capitale fédérale, a connu un des épisodes neigeux les plus intenses depuis 90 ans. Certains endroits ont reçu entre 50 et 100 centimètres de neige. La circulation des trains, des avions et des autoroutes a été arrêtée dans les régions de Baltimore, Philadelphie et de Washington, D.C., et perturbée ailleurs. Une autre tempête aussi intense a affecté les mêmes régions trois jours plus tard. (fr)
  • Снежная буря в США 1—6 февраля 2010 года произошла в районах Среднего Запада, Юго-Запада и Средней Атлантики США. Стала результатом внетропического циклона, протянувшегося от Калифорнии и Аризоны через северную Мексику и юго-восток США. По интенсивности циклон является одним из сильнейших, кроме снежной бури вызвал наводнения и оползни с человеческими жертвами в Мексике и в американских штатах Нью-Мексико, Мэриленд и Виргиния. Наиболее интенсивный снегопад с метелью был зарегистрирован в части Мериленда, а также в других штатах Средней Атлантики. Снежный покров местами составил 0,51—1,02 м. Это привело местами к закрытию аэропортов, железнодорожного сообщения и автомагистралей. (ru)
  • The February 5–6, 2010 North American blizzard, commonly referred to as Snowmageddon, was a Category 3 ("major") nor'easter and severe weather event. The storm's center tracked from Baja California Sur on February 2nd, 2010 to the East coast on February 6, 2010, before heading east out into the Atlantic. Effects were felt to the north and west of this track in northern Mexico, California, and the Southwestern, Midwestern, Southeastern, and most notably Mid-Atlantic States. Severe weather, including extensive flooding and landslides in Mexico, and historic snowfall totals in every one of the Mid-Atlantic states, brought deaths to Mexico, New Mexico, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland. Most crippling was the widespread 20 to 35 in (50 to 90 cm) of snow accumulated across southern Pennsylvania, the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland, Delaware, and southern New Jersey, bringing air and Interstate Highway travel to a halt. While rail service south and west of Washington, D.C. was suspended, rail travel between D.C. and Boston was available with limited service. Blizzard conditions were reported in a relatively small area of Maryland, but near-blizzard conditions occurred across much of the Mid-Atlantic region. This event was the second of four nor'easters during the 2009-2010 winter that brought heavy snow to enough of the Northeast's population to be numerically recognized by NOAA's NESIS intensity rating. The first and third of these systems, the December 2009 Nor'Easter and the February 9–10, 2010 North American blizzard, respectively, combined with this event to bring the snowiest winter on record to much of the Mid-Atlantic. Additionally, this event was the second of three major Mid-Atlantic snowstorms that occurred over a 12-day period; each subsequent storm focused its heaviest snow slightly farther north: the January 30, 2010 storm (not recognized by NESIS) dropped more than a foot of snow across Virginia and the lower Chesapeake Bay region, while the February 9–10, 2010 North American blizzard bulls-eyed the Maryland-Pennsylvania border with as much as 38.3 inches.
