The good news is that although this storm is still expected to develop into a significant storm, development and nearly all of the effects will be well offshore.

Here’s what we know: By the beginning of next week, a low pressure area will form off the coast of the Carolinas then move northward while remaining offshore. Should this occur, another round of locally heavy rain and gusty coastal winds could impact these regions from late Sunday through early Thursday.
Unfortunately, there’s plenty of bad news to report and it started this morning with many areas of the New York Tri-State region dipping into the 30s for overnight temperatures. Remember, many of the country’s heartiest residents are still without power and heat and, in many cases, housing. The cold is only the beginning. As the nor’easter approaches, the wind should start to pick up tonight, the rain moves in tomorrow midday, then the snow by tomorrow night (yes, snow). All the while, the winds continue to build.
It’s starting to look like late next week a nor’easter will develop and then threaten the northeastern United States. It’s difficult to begin putting these thoughts into a blog. More difficult will be the client video that I’ll produce in just a few minutes. Can this really be happening, to the same place, again? It looks like it could be so.
My Inbox is filling with chatter and I’m not surprised. It looks like a strong low pressure system will be taking shape in the Gulf of Mexico threatening to bring (additional) flooding rains to southeastern Texas then move to the Mid-Atlantic states by Sunday. It has the attention of all the ImpactWeather forecasters within arm’s reach of a keyboard.
More snow. And not just more snow but MORE snow. Yesterday’s StormWatch graphics indicated an impressive band of 12+ inches from the New York Tri-State through New England. Today, 18+ inches is indicated across southern New England and perhaps even Long Island (depending on the exact storm track). This morning’s indicators suggest a low pressure […]
Yet another nor’easter is taking aim on the Northeast with, yet again, significant snow in the offing. However, some uncertainty remains in the forecast as the low, still in the Gulf of Mexico, may push a bit farther off the East Coast than presently thought.
Today’s YourWeatherBlog entry deals with today’s nor’easter and the continuing nor’easter threat next week — which will be the fourth nor’easter in about four weeks.
The low pressure area that was in northeastern Texas this morning is expected to be off the coast of New England by later tomorrow. It’s a fast-moving storm system, and that’s a good thing. Should it slow, snowfall amounts from the South to New England would be significantly larger.
Storm Development Outlook. A large upper-level storm system will combine with a southward moving cold front resulting in a risk of locally heavy snow from the northern High Plains of eastern Wyoming, western South Dakota, and Nebraska south and east into the Midwest and middle Mississippi River Valley on Wednesday. Snow will then sink further south into the Southern Plains of eastern Kansas, northern Oklahoma, and Ozark Mountain regions of northern Arkansas and southern Missouri on Wednesday night before the entire low pressure system pushes to the east into the Tennessee Valley on Thursday. Snow accumulations through midday Thursday will generally range from 3 to 5 inches in most locations across these regions; however, a swath of 6-inch snow accumulations will be possible from central Nebraska through northeastern Kansas, and northern/central Missouri. This includes the Kansas City and St. Louis metropolitan areas.
