Another winter storm headed for region

The only people who might be happy are skiers and ski resorts looking to extend their season.

The nor'easter that will form overnight will bring a foot or more of snow to Sussex County, hitting the same area that is recovering from power losses with additional outages, according to the late-afternoon forecast by the National Weather Service forecasting office in Mount Holly.

Snow will change over to rain by late morning, which will continue until the storm ends.

The storm system rolled in from the Pacific and is making its way to the East Coast. Syracuse is likely to get 4 to 6 inches.

The Wednesday evening commute into Thursday morning will be problematic for driving conditions. Be prepared for significant reductions in visibility at times.

Airline disruptions were already beginning to mount Tuesday afternoon, with 660 flights canceled around the USA for Wednesday, according to FlightAware, an airline tracking service. This includes Philadelphia, New York City, Hartford, Albany, Portland and much of the Boston metro area.

A winter weather advisory has officially been issued by the National Weather Service, and northern DE buckles up as the second Nor-'Easter in six days prepares to move through the region.

The coastal flood threat will be lower in comparison to Friday's storm and tides won't be as strong, but a watches are still in effect. Damages from the storm may exceed more than $1 billion in insured losses, according to Jonathan Adams and Derek Han, Bloomberg Intelligence analysts.

He said China defended and contributed to the UN-centered global order, but also said some reforms were necessary. The move followed a preliminary finding in August by the U.S.

As I mentioned, I am anxious about power outages.

About 200,000 homes and business across the Northeast remain without power, down from about 2 million at the last storm's peak.

"We definitely don't need this, but we will be prepared", said Montgomery County Emergency Services Director Jeff Smith.

Winter storm watches stretch as far south as northern Maryland, northern DE and southern New Jersey, as far west as parts of the Mohawk Valley of NY and as far north as northern Maine. Parts of the state were especially at risk because nor'easter-driven wind last week left trees and utility poles vulnerable. Meanwhile, states of emergency remain in place in Dutchess, Putnam, Sullivan and Westchester counties. The weather service predicted temperatures would rise to a high of 40 degrees on Wednesday, with a low of 35 on Wednesday night.

After noon tomorrow the snow will pick up in intensity over inland areas, but it will be raining along the coastline. Those heavier amounts will extend into CT, potentially burying Danbury, Waterbury and Meriden. Forecasters expect a very sharp rain-snow boundary west of the Interstate 95 corridor, with plenty of concrete-heavy snow north and west of the boundary and rain and smaller amounts of snow, or no snow at all, on the other side.

Scattered power outages are possible from wind and heavy, wet snow.

"Honestly, there's nothing any of us can do; if it's coming, it's coming", Smith said.
