    They say it will happen it's just a matter of what track it will take, it won't be anything like Sandy but for the people who have lost everything or just cleaning up the destruction it will suck.

    That sucks. I hope they get power to the folks living in apts. and condos that have no possibility of using a generator or wood stove asap.

    Boy I hope that doesn't hit the northeast. They've been wrong before, I sure hope this doesn't happen. My heart goes out to those in NJ, NY, and the entire northeastern seaboard....

    Yea, there are many people a lot worse off than me. My thoughts are with them.

    Zap, that european model should nail it on the head again. It should hug the coast with rain/sleet/snow and 45 mph gusts. Terrible for those w/o shelter, heat, and power.

    Definatley not needed here, so much destruction. We're counting our blessings that we were relatively unscathed.

    the last i have read is a couple models have this going east a little more then first thought
    although a couple are still going with the storm passing over the 40/70 "benchmark" which is the
    perfect track to dump either heavy rain or snow on the effected areas

    Looks like the very same area that took the worst of Sandy. I predict an increase in woodstoves and generators in the next few years.

    The one thing I said to myself, with all of the destruction was that I didn't have to worry about being cold.

    Amen for that. One less thing to worry about.

    What About the Snow Potential?
    There will be a fine western edge to the precipitation shield, likely somewhere over Pennsylvania, Maryland or West Virginia. It is that western edge that will determine where and how much snow falls.
    The western and also the northern edge of the precipitation shield will tap into some colder air in place over interior New England and interior parts of the mid-Atlantic.
    [​IMG]
    The potential exists for several inches of heavy, wet snow, especially across the ridge tops of central Pennsylvania into the Pocono Mountains and Catskills of New York. That snow threat could extend into the Berkshires of Massachusetts into central and northern New England on Wednesday depending on the extent of the precipitation.
    With some uncertainty, it's a little early to be talking snow amounts, but certainly depending on how things line up, there can be enough to cause additional power outages and tree damage in the interior.
    Residents along the East Coast should continue to check back with AccuWeather.com as we continue to monitor the upcoming storm and refine its details.

    Local weather here says mix during the day, snow at night. My worry for everyone is the trees that have been weakened already. We shall see.

    Hopefully they can get the power back on to most people before this storm hits. And hopefully this one does not turn into a pain in the ......
