Looming Nor'easter to Drop the Other Shoe on East Coast

08 March 2018

Along the coastline, rain and snow will fall, but the trend will be for the snow to move towards the coastline overnight.

Thundersnow, a rare snowstorm event that includes lightning and thunder, is reported to have hit New York City as Mayor Bill de Blasio warns New Yorkers of a "very intense burst of snow" on Wednesday afternoon that could adversely impact their commutes. Wind gusts to 35 miles per hour are possible in northeastern New Jersey. "Roads will be snow covered and slippery, and the weight of the wet snow could bring down tree limbs and power lines as well".

Just days after a potent storm hammered the Northeast and New England, yet another nor'easter will dump up to 18 inches of snow from Pennsylvania to ME into Thursday.

A second nor'easter is barreling through the East Coast Wednesday, just days after a deadly storm tore through the region.

The potential for yet another major storm may not be what people in the Northeast want to hear or read about, but there is that risk later next weekend into early the following week.

Snowfall reports from the agency as of mid-afternoon Monday totaled as much as 6 inches in South Dakota and 9 inches in North Dakota and Minnesota.

So, it doesn't look like we end up with the "jackpot" for snow.... but this is still an impactful storm. But within another system coming, here's what NWS said: "With residual tide anomaly expected to linger thru midweek and the approach of another significant coastal storm.another round of splash over and erosion appears likely".

A slight consolation is that the storm is not expected to bring the coastal flooding like the one last week.

Saturday will be partly cloudy and seasonable with high temperatures in the mid-40s for much of the region, and Sunday will be sunny early followed by increasing clouds as the next area of low pressure begins moving toward the area from the west.

While the Northeastern Seaboard struggles to restore electricity and normalcy while digging out from the last storm, more trouble is on the way.

He said northwest Providence County is expected to get anywhere from 6 to 10 inches of snow.

Further north, snowfall estimates range from 3 to 5 inches in Aroostook County, to possibly around a foot of snow for Millinocket and Greenville. Cloudy, with a high near 35. "New Yorkers should take mass transit if possible and allow for extra travel time", officials said in a news release.

Snow. Low around 33. Chance of precipitation is 100 percent. New snow accumulation of 4 to 8 inches possible. They're predicting at least nine inches of slushy snow in New York City.
