Nor’easter to Bring Rain, Snow to Area

Coastal areas could see flooding.

A Nor’easter will bring plenty of wintry precipitation into the area starting this afternoon, forecasters say. NBC 10 reports:

Light rain will move into the area by Monday afternoon with the possibility of a wintry mix north of the Philadelphia area.

The rain will grow heavier Monday night into Tuesday. The rain will be heavy during the Tuesday morning rush and there will also be gusty winds. Flooding is also possible in some areas as two to three inches of rain are expected to fall in the region.

The rain could turn into snow in parts of the region, the U.S. National Weather Service at Mounty Holly says.

At this point, due to the track of the storm being close to the coast, most areas will experience mainly rain.

• There is the potential for snow and mixed precipitation Monday night mainly north and west of the Interstate 95 and Interstate 80 corridors. By daybreak Tuesday, most locations will become all rain except for the Poconos and extreme northern New Jersey. Similar to the pre-Thanksgiving event, precipitation type will be elevation dependent.

• The rain could mix back with some snow before tapering off Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

So, you know: Bundle up.
