Another Winter Storm This Weekend?

Spring may be nearly two weeks away, but winter seems to be making (at least!) one last stand.

“We think there’s going to be a storm developing across the South this weekend, bringing heavy rains and thunderstorms to portions of the southeastern U.S,” Jon Porter, VP and head of AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions, told Cheddar.

“It does look like that’s going to be a threat to the Middle Atlantic and Northeast as we head into Sunday and Monday.”

The East Coast is still recovering from the second nor'easter to hit the region in the past week.

Just Wednesday, a New Jersey school teacher was struck by lighting during the thundersnow, and some New Yorkers were barricaded by up to 26 inches of snow. The snow fell at a rate of two to three inches per hour.

By Thursday morning, Winter Storm Quinn had left more than 1 million people without power. Porter told Cheddar that it’s going to take some time before everything is restored.

While a storm this weekend is not a “sure bet,” Porter told Cheddar “it’s something to watch as we head into the next several days.”
