AccuWeather says another nor’easter will form and hover along the East coast next week, just in time for Thanksgiving.
How close to the coast the storm tracks will determine how unsettled the weather gets in the I-95 corridor to the Appalachians.
Major cities that could be within the storm’s reach include New York City, Philadelphia, Boston and Washington, D.C.
The early indications are the storm will not be as cold as the storm that brought last week’s fiasco. For most locations, it looks like a “rain or no” situation. The heaviest rain may have trouble backing westward over the central and southern Appalachians.
Some snow would be possible, if the storm were to spin into colder air farther north over part of New England.
One scenario has the possibility of rain and breezy conditions developing over the Carolinas, Virginia and the Delmarva Peninsula Sunday. Rain and wind would pick up and continue to spread slowly northward through the middle of the week.
At least during the early stages, the storm should not be as intense as last week’s nor’easter. However, it may get stronger during the middle of the week, at which point it could wobble into eastern New England or get kicked out to sea.
