The Weather Channel reports:
Winter Storm Toby will spread yet another swath of snow, not to mention wind and coastal flooding, into the East through Thursday, the fourth nor’easter in less than three weeks and potentially one of the heaviest snowstorms this late in the season along parts of the I-95 corridor.
Winter storm warnings, where snowfall is expected to be heaviest, extend from eastern Massachusetts to the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina, including the cities of Boston, Providence, Hartford, virtually the entire New York City Tri-State area and Philadelphia.
The New York Post reports:
“The wintery mix during the evening commute will change to all snow overnight (Wednesday) as the temperatures fall to the upper 20s,” AccuWeather meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said. The snow will intensify during the day Wednesday and is expected to cause problems for commuters, as well as flight delays and cancellations, she added.
Before the system heads off to Nantucket early Thursday, between 6 and 10 inches of snow may blanket the city – and even more in the northern suburbs, where more than a foot is expected. “The heavy, wet snow and winds of as much as 45 mph will also cause tree damage and power outages,” Pydynowski said.
It’s possible that the storm could affect travel to Washington DC for Saturday’s anti-gun march. Plan accordingly.
For the fourth time in the last three weeks, we're preparing for a nor’easter that is forecasted to disrupt operations Wednesday and Thursday at airports along the U.S. east coast. https://t.co/hqsZoLli8y
