East coast, keep on with your snow dances…
As we head into the weekend, the National Weather Service has issued winter storm warnings all over the east, expecting to bring powder to the mid-Atlantic and southern New England.
How much snow and where?
- 6” or more is possible in Eastern Pennsylvania and much of New Jersey, southern and eastern New England, New York City Tri-State area and possibly the Philadelphia metro area. Find NY, NJ, and PA lift tickets.
- Parts of Long Island, southeast Massachusetts and downeast Maine could see up to 12” of snow. Find New England lift tickets.
- Light accumulations are expected into the mid-Atlantic region, including the Baltimore and Washington D.C. metros. Find Mid-Atlantic lift tickets.
Below is the forecast for this week, according to weather.com.
- “Snow spreads from the Ohio Valley and Appalachians into the parts of the Mid-Atlantic states.
- The line separating rain from snow is still somewhat uncertain, but looks to set up generally along I-95 near the Washington D.C. and Baltimore metro areas.
- At least some snow is most likely overnight north of Interstate 95, including Philadelphia, the New York City Tri-State area and southern New England before dawn Thursday.
- Snow, heavy for some, may linger in parts of the mid-Atlantic states as far north as New York City through the morning before tapering off/ending by early afternoon.
- Farther north, snow, heavy at times, will persist much of the day in New England, especially in southern and eastern New England.
- Snow will gradually taper off in far eastern New England Thursday night. They will be most persistent in Cape Cod (ocean-effect bands) and in Downeast Maine.
- Winds will intensify quickly along the northeast coast Thursday, with gusts over 50 mph possible in far southeast New England, capable of some downed tree limbs and wires.
- Some minor coastal flooding is also possible in eastern Massachusetts.”
