Editorial Reviews

Review

If there were a gold standard for weather reference books, it would be the two-volume "Northeast Snowstorms." -- Wall Street Journal, November 4, 2006

The snow-crazed can relive the drama of great snowstorms and the fascinating processes that make great snow machines tick. -- WeatherWise, March/April 2005

From the Publisher

This two-volume set is the culmination of more than 50 years of combined professional experience from the foremost experts in the field. Previously, Kocin and Uccellini co-authored Snowstorms Along the Northeastern Coast of the United States, an out-of-print volume that was significantly expanded and updated to become Northeast Snowstorms.

Hello all, My name is phil and the first thing i want to say is that this is the most informative collection of north east snow storms that ever was!! Kocin did a supurb job, the book is in 2 parts book 1 is about 300 pages or so and goes into all kinds of details of what nor easters are, how they form, where do they go, etc. then he takes a look at climatology, he explains how computer models are interpreted and forecasted. He goes over aspects of snow storms from different parts of the USA and compares them to the north east. The focus on the book is from Virginia north to Maine! He will go over el and la nino. He discusses what -NAO is and what and NAO is period. He discusses the several ways that the NE gets snow storms-that is how they track, and where were they a few days before. He uses many graphs and maps to show past storms tracks and how they evolved into "the big one". He gives detailed accounts of averages and anomolies from several major NE cities from VA to ME. He will get a little technical but easily readable by any current meteorologist. He will go into Mesoscale events, and dynamical and physical processes that influence the NE snowstorms. He will also introduce his NESIS indicator of snowstorms, which is kind of a numerical scale much like how hurricanes area rated. He uses principles like how many people were influenced by the system, how deep and extensive was the snow totals, winds, air pressure and temperatures will all play a role in the NESIS scale, then a number will be issued on those factors and he represents many storms in both sections of the book, but tells about it in the first.

The Second Book is approx. 500 pages of very detailed Moderate to crippling snowstorms.

The 2 winter weather experts have done it again. They've published an updated comprehensive guide to winter storms affecting the East Coast of the United States, a companion to their original book, "Snowstorms Along the Northeastern Coast of the United States: 1955 to 1985" which was first published back in 1990.

The guide is a 2-volume set: the first volume covering synoptic descriptions and comparisons of over 30 snowstorms occcuring along the East coast of the U.S., as well as some major ice storms (and sleet) that have affected the region.
The second volume gives an in depth and detailed look at 32 selected snowstorms between 1950 and 2003, as well as a shorter detailed review of some selected storms from 1899 through 1950. Ice storms that were descrivd in Volume 1 are given a more in depth and detailed look in Volume 2. (these termed "Near Miss" events)

Also included with the 2-volume set is a DVD which contain data on the described snowstorms is a welcome addition.
These 2 volumes are a must for the winter weather enthusiast and amateur meteorologist who want to delve more deeply into the aspects of snowstorms affecting our section of the U.S. and what makes them "tick."

Just as with the original work, which I purchased back in 1991, I couldn't wait until the 2-volume set arrived at my home. This new publication exceeded all of my expectations. I've used it as a reference several times in the 3 short weeks since it came into my possession.

This was a gift for my son who is a weather geek. He LOVES these books! He asked for them because the weather experts on his weather boards recommend them.

If you have an interest in winter weather, this is the book for you. It can be read by just about anyone, and the illustrations do an excellent job of helping you understand the patterns that lead to massive snowstorms. An excellent excellent purchase.

Any weather/snow lover will have to have this book. It is especially enjoyable as I am old enough to have lived through many of these storms in years past and so have personal experience add the technical aspects that I did not know at the time.
