"Hard to believe we are getting SNOW out of a HURRICANE in West Virginia. Insane!" tweeted Dylan Dreyer on Monday, Oct. 29, 2012. This storm is following quick on the heels of Sandy.
While a powerful nor'easter lashes the Sandy-ravaged coast, snow will fall over a narrow swath of the interior Northeast Wednesday into Thursday.
A storm that will swing off the East coast on Tuesday will intensify rapidly near the mid-Atlantic coast on Wednesday.
High winds, coastal flooding and torrential rainfall will impact the mid-Atlantic coast, including the Sandy-battered New Jersey and Long Island.
Colder air across the interior Northeast will allow snow to mix in or fall alone by Wednesday afternoon. A narrow band of accumulating snow will develop on the backside of the storm from eastern Pennsylvania to southern New York state and central and northern New Jersey.
The heaviest snow, with the potential for 6 inches of accumulation, is forecast to develop over northeastern Pennsylvania to part of southeastern New York.
A wintry mix and snow will spread farther north across New York state and northern New England overnight Wednesday into Thursday.
Enough snow can fall to make some roads slippery and dangerous.
The weight of snow, sleet and ice may be enough to down some tree branches onto power lines. Scattered power outages are not out of the question.
High winds could add further stress to tree limbs across the interior Northeast, while also contributing to wintry AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.
Temperatures may even be cold enough for some wet snow to mix in as far south as Philadelphia and Wilmington, Del., for a time Wednesday into Wednesday evening.
"It would have to snow very hard to stick to the roads [this far south]; however, there is a slight chance that it could happen," AccuWeather Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.
