East Coast could see yet another winter storm midweek

DOVER, N.H. — Now that winter has us firmly in its grip it just doesn’t want to let go.

Next week the East Coast is in line for yet another storm bringing snow and a mix of rain and sleet.

The storm is expected to reach the Atlantic Coast by Wednesday and last into Thursday.

Though the East is still recovering from two back-to-back winter storm systems, this next potential storm is expected to pack a punch — possibly a knockout one.

However, it is still too early to really tell what kind of damage this storm could do, according to the National Weather Service.

Conditions at most levels in the nearby atmosphere and well away from the storm throughout North America will favor explosive development.

At this point, the storm could become a real monster, according to Acuweather.com.

While being too cold and stopping shy of becoming a tropical system, it could have serious impact to life, property and travel plans.

According to Chief Accuweather.com Meteorologist Elliot Abrams, “There may be similarities to a storm which affected much of the same area around March 6, 1962.”

This storm comes on the heels of Wednesday’s messy mix of snow and sleet and rain that struck New Hampshire and Maine and caused numerous power outages and car accidents throughout the region.
