The Northeast Faces Its Third Winter Storm in 2 Weeks
The northeastern United States will experience its third nor’easter storm in two weeks on Tuesday.
Winter storm Skylar will bring blizzard conditions — including high winds up to 60 miles per hour and a foot or more of snow — through the area beginning Monday evening.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for southern Maine, New Hampshire and Boston and its surrounding areas. A winter weather advisory is in effect for eastern New York (including Long Island), Pennsylvania, and northern New Jersey through Tuesday evening.
New York City is predicted to see less than one inch of snow from Monday evening through Tuesday morning. However, around Boston, snow is predicted to fall at a rate of two inches per hour. Coastal flooding is likely around Massachusetts. The storm will likely rapidly intensify as it moves up New England in a process known as bombogenesis.
