Winter Storm Jonas: Snowfall rates of 1 to 3 inches per hour in Washington, D.C. and New York City areas. The combination of winter storm strong winds and heavy snow will continue to create life-threatening whiteout conditions for anyone attempting to travel this weekend, as well as wide-spread record coastal flooding.

Winter storm Jonas and your boatCheck your boat after it’s safe to travel again. You might inspect your boat for these three potential issues: 1. Possible 50 to 70mph winds could blow off or whip snow up under a boat’s protective coverings, 2. Accumulation of ice and snow creates weight issues for boat wraps and coverings, 3. Coastal flooding from storm surges combined with a full moon this weekend will make tides higher than usual.Jonas Storm snow and ice on a boat Snow-Boat
