Midweek Storm to Bring Strong Winds, Possible Snow
With Sandy's damage still affecting some areas, New England is bracing for another storm.
Lexington, some of Middlesex County and other parts of southern New England are in store for more rough weather this week as a nor'easter heads this way Wednesday and into Thursday morning.
Forecasters are predicting strong winds between 25 and 35 miles per hour with gusts up to 65 mph. Additionally, the storm will be bringing chilly temperatures and rain—possibly even snow in some areas.
"A period of accumulating wet snow is possible across portions of the region—especially along and west of the I-95 corridor. Accumulations at or less than an inch are anticipated over southeastern New England including the coastal plain, Cape and Islands," according to a hazardous weather alert issued by the National Weather Service.
The nor'easter is expected to hit the Northeast from Cape Cod down to New York City, which was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy last week. This incoming storm's winds are expecting to be even more damaging as many trees, limbs and structures have already been weakened by last week's superstorm.
Forecasters at The Weather Channel are also predicting coastal flooding with the nor'easter in some areas. Unlike during Hurricane Sandy, the flooding will not coincide with astronomical high tides.
