More and more signs are pointing toward a major storm along much of the Atlantic Seaboard next week, meaning a wind-whipped snow for some areas and wind-driven rain for others.

The storm could rank right up there with the Christmas Weekend Blizzard and could hit part of the same area, or different areas farther inland. No matter what, it looks like a "big deal."

While the storm will have its nasty moments over the Rockies, Plains and part of the Midwest this weekend into early next week, it will be at its worst along the Atlantic Seaboard, where it is forecast to markedly strengthen. Arctic air building into the Northeast will also be a major factor in the big storm that will unfold.

Japan: More snow, rough weather on way

The Meteorological Agency said Sunday that the cold snaps and heavy snowfall seen across the nation have been caused by a cold air mass and wintry pressure pattern hovering above the archipelago

The weather agency warned that strong winds, heavy snow and high waves would continue to pose hazards through Monday in several areas, particularly along the Sea of Japan coast.

West Japan Railway Co (JR West) said it canceled five overnight trains between Osaka and Aomori and between Niigata and Sapporo because of winds and heavy snow.

Temperatures dropped to as low as minus 8.9 degrees in Shikoku in the town of Motoyama, Kochi Prefecture, minus 7.8 in Tsushima, Nagasaki Prefecture, minus 5.8 in Ube, Yamaguchi Prefecture, and minus 4.5 in Kobayashi, Miyazaki Prefecture, marking an all-time low since observation began.

Hirakawa in Aomori Prefecture also tied its record low at minus 15.6, while temperatures fell to a more temperate 1.1 in metropolitan Tokyo, marking the season's first frost day in the capital.

According to an updated winter forecast released today by AccuWeather.com, a strong La Nina in the equatorial eastern Pacific will continue to cause extreme weather for the remainder of the winter of 2011 across much of the country. The difficult part of the forecast is where the extreme weather will occur and whether or not it will occur with regularity.

Despite some reports that La Nina was weakening, the current La Nina is still going strong and many forecasters predict that it will persist into the Spring and potentially even the Summer and Fall of 2011. AccuWeather.com long range forecasters believe that due to the strong La Nina, colder than normal temperatures will continue to affect the eastern states, particularly the northeast and the Capital Region of upstate New York, into early February. Continued cold outbreaks are expected through the end of January, with the deepening snowpack primed to make the outbreaks even more extreme.

Another snow storm barrels down on NYC and Boston

(Reuters) - A winter storm bearing down on the Northeast could dump another 6 to 12 inches of snow on New York City by Wednesday, 10 days after a powerful blizzard paralyzed the city and tarnished the image of Mayor Michael Bloomberg over the city's response.

The brunt of storm was expected to hit on Tuesday night and continue into Wednesday morning, likely disrupting travel, the U.S. National Weather Service said.

Boston could get hit with 12 to 15 inches (30 cm to 38) of snow, the weather service said.

The same storm that battered the southern United States on Monday was moving north up the coast and was due to mix with an upper level disturbance in the northern Great Plains that was heading eastward, producing heavy snow and winds with low visibility.

East Coast Fish Die-Offs Linked to Extreme Cold Snap by Brandon Keim

The death of 2 million fish in Chesapeake Bay isn’t a sign of apocalypse, historical or otherwise, but it does offer a chance to consider what could happen if colder winters become routine in the eastern United States.

Some climatologists have proposed that, paradoxically, a warming Arctic will actually push cold air south, producing patterns like the one believed to have caused the Chesapeake fish kill.

If cold snaps grow deeper even as year-round temperatures rise, Chesapeake Bay’s ecosystems would adapt — but perhaps not, as is usually forecast, through the northward migration of warm-loving species, but by favoring species that can handle extremes.

“The long-term makeup of ecological communities is more driven by extremes than average conditions,” said Boris Worm, a marine biologist at Nova Scotia’s Dalhousie University. “Whatever can survive the extreme makes it in the long-term.”

The Chesapeake Bay fish kill was the latest in a series of animal die-offs to gain attention — and more than a little hysteria — after the dramatic New Year’s Eve death of 5,000 red-winged blackbirds over Beebe, Arkansa,s and the subsequent report of 100,000 drum fish dying in the Arkansas River.

Snow returns to Britain as council just 50 miles from Britain's biggest salt mine buys fresh stock... from PERU by Liz Hull

A council less than 50 miles from Britain's biggest salt mine is importing thousands of tonnes more than 6,000 miles from Peru to replenish stocks lost to the big freeze.

Rochdale Council took the drastic action after transport bosses became concerned that grit levels could fall critically low for a second year running.

Although much of the UK will enjoy a much welcome spell of milder weather this week, forecasters last night warned that winter is not yet over.

Residents in the north east of England yesterday woke up to a fresh sprinkling of snow and the Met Office refused to rule out a return of the freezing temperatures which crippled much of the UK last month.

People in parts of Scotland awoke to the sight of snow on Saturday, with up to four inches reported in some places.

It was the coldest December on record and there's a triple weather whammy on the way with rain, sleet and snow hitting the south tomorrow.

A fresh blizzard is expected in long-suffering Scotland with as much as four inches falling on higher ground over the next two days.

By Friday, parts of the West Midlands and Wales could see up to two inches of the white stuff. But London has had a lucky escape with temperatures as high as 10c (50f) this weekend.

Much of the country is at risk of new falls although forecasters admit there is 'a lot of uncertainty' about how bad it will be.

Met Office spokeswoman Sarah Holland said:'There is a chance of snow, but not anywhere near as bad as before Christmas.'
