Fourth snow storm to hit New England and mid-Atlantic

Spring is all set to arrive on Tuesday but it seems like winter isn’t ready to leave yet. It is likely that the low-pressure system moving around Southeast on Asia may hit the lands and will expectedly develop into other “nor’easter”, as reported by CNN meteorologist Jenn Varian. This may possibly bring in a storm accompanied by rain and snow along the mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions. This will mark the fourth storm to hit the eastern coasts in three weeks.

Snow Storm: Statements of officials

The exact location of where the storm will hit is yet not confirmed, as said by Varian. He further added, “If the storm remains too far east off of the coast, then it will not reach Boston/other New England coastal cities. Snowfall accumulations at this time are with very low confidence.”

CNN meteorologist Haley Brink told that the storm may likely hit mid-Atlantics. It is also expected that it may snow in Washington beginning from Tuesday receiving a snow of 4 to 6 inches. The south of New England will get about 2 to 4 inches.
