4th Nor’Easter in a Month May Dump 14” of Snow on New York
It’s not over yet. Forecasters early Tuesday upped their winter storm warning for New York City as two systems appeared to combine and now threaten to drop more than a foot of snow—on the second day of spring, no less. As much as 18 inches is expected in Philadelphia, with significant accumulations predicted for Washington, D.C., Boston, and Connecticut. The National Weather Service says the sleet will begin late Tuesday, but the heaviest snow will come Wednesday afternoon, along with yet another round of high winds, coastal flooding, and even more power outages. It will be the fourth nor’easter to hit the region in less than a month.
