Spring Noreaster coming again? 6-inches of snow to blanket New England area

With a spring Noreaster aka Nor'easter forecast for the New England and Mid-Atlantic areas Tuesday, residents are bracing for a potential blizzard. Meteorologist say another 2014 winter snow storm off the East Coast is predicted to dump up to a foot of snow or more in areas already recovering from a very active season, according to a March 23 AOL news report.

On the coming Northeast spring snow storm, one meteorologist had this to say:

This is going to be a very strong storm, there's no question about that." And just when residents along the snow corridors were looking towards the first day of spring, news of a blizzard suddenly dulled the celebration.

The East Coast winter storm is likely to be spawned by two events: an upper-level disturbance from Canada on a collision-course with a low-pressure area spinning up off the eastern coast of Florida by Tuesday morning.

The spring Nor'easter will form when the two systems collide later that night. As a consequence, a wintry mix of precipitation will blanket the area south of the Tri-State area and as far north towards the Greater Boston area and Bangor, Maine.

However, according to weather computer models, the storm and intensity are points of contention. Some models show the I-95 corridor overcome with a rain event, while Washington D.C. and areas further north will experience snow accumulations.

Perhaps, the best-case scenario is to have the storm form off the coast in the Atlantic Ocean, which would spare land areas and possibly leave rain in its wake.

Nonetheless, New England and Mid-Atlantic states will still experience windy conditions and rapidly-falling temperatures as the systems merge. The good news is that by Friday, spring-like conditions will return to the area, making the impact of the spring Nor'easter short-lived.

Stay tuned for more on this developing story.
