COMET Case Study 024: East Coast U.S. Explosive Cyclogenesis 2000 Data at UCAR/JOSS/NOAA/CODIAC

Abstract: Case 024 follows the formation and rapid intensification of a cyclone
off of the southeastern U.S. coastline. The storm moved almost due
north, affecting nearly the entire eastern seaboard. In retrospect,
this storm's intensity and position was difficult for the models to
predict accurately, posing a forecasting challenge for NWS offices in
the affected region. Heavy snow fell from the Carolinas, through the
Washington D.C. area, and into New England, with at least 5 deaths
reported. Record snowfall amounts fell across North Carolina, with the
Raleigh-Durham area most affected.
