Another nor'easter to bring HEAVY snow to New England

Posted: Updated:

Another nor’easter system will bring treacherous travel and heavy snow amounts to parts of New England toward mid-week.

What is a nor’easter? It is named for the northeasterly winds over New England’s coast on the north side of a strong area of low pressure.

These winds bring in moisture from the Atlantic, and with cold air in place, snow becomes likely. Because it is occurring on the north/northwest side of the low pressure system, “deformation banding” often can form with convective enhancement to the snow rates.

All in all, a heavy, windy snow event is on the way for some of the same areas hit last week with a different nor’easter!

From Wednesday to Thursday, snow totals will vary but could reach up to over a foot in areas *just* north of NYC/Boston. Even still, significant travel disruptions are likely.  

For areas near the coast, coastal flooding, beach erosion, and gale-force winds often occur.
