Winter Storm Alert – Code Yellow – December 14, 2020

Fleets across the Northeastern US are preparing for a major nor’easter winter storm, which is forecast to bring heavy snow, winds, and coastal flooding as soon as Wednesday. CBS reports the storm could be the strongest in nearly five years, bringing over a foot of snow in New York and other Northeastern cities.

Similar to hurricanes, nor’easters are low pressure cyclones, typically developing in the winter and striking (as the name suggests) the northeastern US. A storm system making its way across the continental US from the Rockies will meet up with an area of low pressure coming from the Atlantic by mid-week, releasing heavy storm conditions over the Northeastern US starting Wednesday.

Winter storms can pose challenges for fueling infrastructure, making roads impassable until conditions improve. Sites requiring fuel in the Northeast should pay close attention to weather forecasts this week to ensure they can remain operable. In addition, freezing weather conditions can cause water in fuel tanks to freeze, potentially blocking filters.

Mansfield is currently on Code Yellow for the Northeast, monitoring the storm’s progress and its impact on fueling infrastructure and local fuel distribution.
