Snow, sleet, wind to hit Sandy-affected areas

NEED TO KNOW
  • Areas recovering after Sandy could see severe weather
  • Winter storm, coastal flooding and high wind warnings issued

A storm moving up the northeast coastline will bring a round a heavy snow, rain, and strong winds affecting victims of Hurricane Sandy. One of the biggest concerns will be the winds as residents could see gusts up to 60 mph. That will be strong enough to knock down power lines and trees, especially since the ground is already saturated. Coastal flooding will also be a major issue for the already heavily impacted coastlines of Delaware, New Jersey, Long Island, and Connecticut, as well as the shores of eastern Massachusetts. 

The day will start off with rain, but expect some snow to mix in during the midday hours across northern Maryland, southern New York, New Jersey, and into eastern Pennsylvania. Much of New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine will also see snowfall totaling 2-4” with isolated amounts of 6” or more in the higher terrain.

The heaviest snowfall comes later this evening and into the overnight hours with some locations picking up 3-5 inches of snowfall. Expect some sleet to fall in parts of northern Delaware, New Jersey and southern Pennsylvania as well.

Areas from Long Island to eastern Massachusetts should mainly get rain. This nor’easter will mean lengthy air travel delays and bring problems along Interstate 95.
