Nor’easter May Be Next for New England

Hemera/Thinkstock(SILVER SPRING, Md.) -- As steps toward recovery slowly progress in the wake of Sandy, another storm may soon be hitting the East Coast in time for Election Day.

The National Weather Service’s Prediction Center issued a warning for a possible nor’easter, which may hit the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions as early as next Tuesday.

While the storm is not anticipated to be as destructive as Sandy, the prediction center anticipated the storm will “cause light to moderate precipitation around that region of the country” and “produce impacts much less extreme.”

The Washington Post reports that the European Centre Medium Range Forecast (EURO) model, which tracked Sandy over a week before it hit, shows a simulation of the storm that will bring moderate rains and gusty winds in many of the same areas ravaged by the superstorm.

The impending storm may possibly delay the recuperation efforts of both New York and New Jersey.

East Coast Digging Out From Latest Storm

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(BOSTON) -- New England is digging out Thursday after the region's third storm in three weeks dumped more than two feet of snow in some areas, including a one-day record for Boston.

Heavy snow added hundreds of pounds of weight to trees. Around Boston, a foot of snow hindered the city leaving over 100,000 customers without power statewide. The lights could be dark for four days in some places.

The deep freeze continues in the southeast, as crews in Georgia continue working to clear major highways. They say the roads are still blocked by cars left during Sunday night's storm. 

In Atlanta, schools are closed for the fourth day in a row -- incredibly rare for that part of the U.S. -- and driving conditions on busy I-85 remain treacherous with accidents littering the highway for miles.
