Nor’easter Building Up on the East Coast
(NEW YORK) — After an early spring, a late season Nor’easter will move up the East Coast Sunday through Monday bringing torrential rain, strong winds, high waves and snow.
Parts of 10 states are under flood watch advisories from New Hampshire and southern Vermont and Massachusetts, south to New Jersey, Delaware and eastern Pennsylvania. Big cities under flood watches through early Monday include Boston, Hartford, New York City, Philadelphia, and Wilmington, Del., which may see two to four inches of rain.
Areas further inland, from western New York and western Pennsylvania down into West Virginia and Maryland, could see winds from 20 to 40 miles per hour and major snowfall. In high mountain areas like northwest Pennsylvania’s Allegheny Mountains, snowfall could exceed a foot. Counties in and around Pittsburgh could see 3-4 inches of snow.
The worst of the storm is expected to hit late Sunday and continue into Monday.
