The February 2-4, 2023 North American blizzard was a fast moving and powerful blizzard that blanketed much of the Eastern United States and Canada during Early-February 2023. Owing to its origins from an Alberta Clipper, it started out as a weak low pressure system, tracking from Arkansas on February 1 to New Jersey on February 3, by then a powerful nor' easter. In advance of the blizzard, a state of emergency was declared 11 Northeastern states and 4 Canadian provinces. Winter Storm and Blizzard warnings were issued across the region. More than 75 million were affected by the blizzard, including 800,000 who lost power, and 8 deaths claimed. Numerous flight, train, and bus services were also canceled. Up to 4 feet of snow fell in the hardest hit areas. Forecasting for the storm was controversial, as it tracked closer to the coast than anticipated. As a result snow totals were far less than originally expected.
