Winter Storm On The Way

The city’s public school kids are not getting a snow day this Wednesday, but the nor’easter will be making for a bit of a slow commute this morning. By 9:05, he said, it was 6.5 inches. Schools began announcing closures Tuesday afternoon in preparation for the storm.

The energy from the storm will help fuel the upcoming nor’easter that will slam the East Coast on Wednesday and Thursday.

Snowfall rates of 1-2 inches per hour are possible, especially in eastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey during the daylight hours Wednesday.

Simpson said the storm will also bring high winds, with gusts approaching 40 miles per hour, but nothing like the destructive winds that battered SouthCoast, Cape Cod and much of the state on Friday. Washington and Baltimore will fall in the southern portion of the storm’s snow production Wednesday and are expected to experience little to no snow collection. It also caused at least nine deaths on the east coast, including two children who were crushed by trees.

“As of Wednesday night, DePrest said 7″ was reported in West Hartford, 13″ in Bristol and 19.6″ in Newtown, 3″ in New London, and 24″ was reported in New Fairfield. “It won’t be the same devastating storm in terms of wind and wet snow, but certainly a significant and impactful one”. After midnight there will be lighter snow or rain changing to a brief period of snow.

A blizzard that walloped the north-central US on Monday is forecast to transform into a nor’easter, which will hit the Northeast and New England on Wednesday and Thursday.

The city of Philadelphia could see up to 8 inches of snow.

Snow will be more dense toward the Iowa and Nebraska borders, but light snow is possible in the Kansas City area, according to forecasters.

Snow is in the forecast for the Northeast this week.

Friday’s storm brought heavy snow and strong winds, and this storm is expected to have a similar impact.

“This will be a more compact storm than the Friday system”, said Ben Gelber, a meteorologist and Monroe County native.

Thousands of people are without power Thursday morning as a nor’easter continues to bear down on the state.

It was described by various media outlets as having “the heart of a blizzard with the soul of a hurricane” as it thundered up the eastern seaboard, setting all-time low-pressure, low-temperature and snowfall records from Florida to New England.

Wednesday: Snow. High near 36.

Residents should expect downed trees, power outages, and blowing snow.
