US Northeast Braces for Third Powerful Storm in Two Weeks

Nor'easter set for Tuesday, messy morning commute

Parking bans and school cancellations popped up in Channel 3's system on Monday. High-end snow forecasts tack on several more inches of snow throughout the state, though there is only a 10 percent chance of the high-end scenario unfolding.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for northern Connecticut, Rhode Island and much of MA from late Monday night until Tuesday night.

The chance of snow showers drops to 50 percent on Thursday and continues with scattered snow through the weekend.

"Travel will be very hard to impossible, including the morning commute on Tuesday and possibly the evening commute on Tuesday", the Weather Service said.

The Federal Courthouse in Central Islip will be closed Tuesday, March 13, due to the incoming storm. Winds may be 30 to 40 miles per hour, gusting up to 65 miles per hour.

The week started off sunny with highs near 44 expected.

As with last week's storm, the biggest factor Tuesday will be the precipitation, according to Nouhan. He said people shouldn't be misled by the rain that fell early because snow was anticipated later in the day and suggested motorists should home.

It will be the third winter storm to rake the East Coast since March 2. A renewed surge of cold air will then become entrenched over the eastern US behind the storm, leading to unseasonably cold temperatures for March to continue through the middle of the week, with Florida also feeling the effects of the colder weather. Only minor coastal flooding is predicted.

The Northeast is bracing for a third nor'easter to impact the region in less than two weeks - and it is expected to bring snow and heavy winds starting Monday night.

Shopping plazas along Route 209 were filled with utility crews brought in from other states to help get power restored. "They didn't know where else to go", Gehl said. Winter Storm Skylar will cap off the 11-day nor'easter trifecta when it swipes New England on Tuesday. Bangor got 82.6 inches of snow from November 2016 through April 2017, but so far this winter has gotten 87 inches.

"It's been a very active pattern", said Eswar Iyer, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wakefield, Virginia. All that really means to us is that, depending on which way the wind blows the gulf stream flows, we're going to have to wait for actual signs of spring instead of celebrating the Spring Equinox, which by the calendar, is scheduled for March 20 at 12:15 p.m.
