It may be spring, but now forecasters are calling for a “Noreaster” winter storm for Tuesday and Wednesday. It could dump a foot of snow for spring and could be worse in other areas.

The National Weather Service predicts a very strong storm.

Spring Snow in Forcast

“This has the potential to be a very significant storm. … but it is too soon to get any more focused than that,” according to the National Weather Service.

WPVI took a look at the chance of the storm making a huge impact on land. “Right now, the possibility of it coming closer to the coast to give a heavy swath of plowable snow along I-95 - right now it looks like a 40 percent chance.”

At this point, the storm is difficult to forecast since it’s still in its developing stages. KYW-TV points out there’s also the chance all that snow, and even rain, could simply fall over the Atlantic Ocean - leaving the Northeast out of the woods.

Noreaster To Bring Flooding

Forecasters also predict the storm to bring strong winds and possible flooding along the Atlantic coast. A ‘Noreaster’ storm is a big shock, since temperatures have risen for spring. It’s been a strange winter this year.

Could the Climate Change stories be true? Well, this isn’t the first time for snow during early spring.
