A spring nor'easter is predicted for the Mid-Atlantic states and New England as a low-pressure system moves through Tuesday night. Star Tribune reports March 25 that the National Weather Service said how much snow expected to fall depends on the storm's path. Frigid temperatures and strong winds will develop throughout the region.
Over half a foot of snow is forecast to hit the southeastern area of Massachusetts Tuesday night and continuing through Wednesday. Minor flooding and beach erosion along the Massachusetts coast has also been forecast by the National Weather Service in the spring nor'easter. Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket will see the worst of the storm. Snowfall could total eight to 10 inches there. Boston and the northern part of the state could get two to four inches of snow.
New Hampshire could see one or two inches of snow. Maine is forecast to get between eight and 14 inches. New York City is predicted to get less than an inch of snow while portions of New Jersey and Pennsylvania may get two and four inches of snow. Connecticut, eastern Long Island, and coastal Rhode Island are expected to get two to five inches of snow.
Other spring nor'easter forecasts include one to two inches of snow in Washington, D.C. and northern Virginia. The snowfall will occur by Tuesday afternoon with precipitation turning it into rain by late evening.
