Another nor'easter to blast East Coast with heavy snow, strong winds

Another nor'easter to blast East Coast with heavy snow, strong winds

Unlike the previous storm, meteorologists expect far more snow between Wednesday and Thursday as temperatures are lower in impacted cities, including Philadelphia, New York City, Hartford, Albany, Portland and Boston.

Tonight: An inch or two of light snow, maybe mixed with rain, will fall tonight. The New York City Department of Sanitation has issued a Snow Alert, with Alternate Side Parking rules suspended through Thursday, as well as a hazardous travel advisory for Wednesday. Winds will increase as well, but not to the level of the intense 60 mile-per-hour northwesterly gusts we had from the last storm. But scattered outages are still possible from a combination of gusty winds and a heavy wet snow.

A strong winter storm is threatening to deliver gusty winds and heavy snow to the Northeast, where crews still are working to restore power to more than 100,000 customers after the weekend's deadly "bomb cyclone".

Depending on how quickly the storm strengthens, it may turn northward and hug the coast enough to bring flooding rain, travel-snarling snow, strong winds and a round of coastal flooding to the mid-Atlantic and New England. Lighter snow will linger through mid afternoon Thursday before ending. The county received anywhere from 8 to 30 inches of snow, depending on the location. High: low-mid 40s.

The computer models on Monday pointed to 12-18 inches of snow for the southern third of Sussex County and south and west into Warren and Hunterdon counties as well as Monroe and Northhampton counties in Pennsylvania.

Turkey detains four Iraqi nationals for planning attack on US Embassy
Meanwhile, Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozda─č said that Turkey is the country most effectively fighting against Daesh. The Anadolu Agency said police detained four Iraqi nationals in connection with the threat against the embassy.

The snow will be heavy at times, especially from midday Wednesday through Wednesday evening, where rates will be 1 to 2 inches per hour. With this being a heavy, wet snow, it is likely that trees and power lines could be brought down from the weight of the accumulating snow, resulting in power outages. In New York, White Plains and points north could get as more than a foot. Winter weather advisories are in effect for southwestern New Jersey and northern DE due to the rain/snow line uncertainty.

Since Feb. 1, northwestern New Jersey has received more than 200 percent of normal precipitation, Drag noted.

Snow should end from southwest to northeast Wednesday evening as the storm pulls away, with winds still blowing briskly Wednesday night and shifting from the northwest behind our departing storm.

We'll keep you posted as information becomes available, but in the mean time, start planning for a snow day.

Sunday, the high will be near 48 with mostly sunny skies, the weather service said.
