PostSubject: THIRD STORM COMING FOR EAST COAST?   Fri Mar 09, 2018 11:50 am


Third Coastal Storm in 10 Days Could Affect the East Coast Early Next Week

Story Highlights

- The East Coast could be facing another coastal storm early next week.

- This would be the third coastal storm in 10 days, following Winter Storms Riley and Quinn.

- The magnitude of impacts, if any, from this third potential storm is unknown at this time.

March is off to a roaring start for the East Coast with two strong coastal storms in five days and another potential one looming for early next week.

First was Winter Storm Riley, which brought destructive winds, heavy snow and severe coastal flooding to the Northeast late last week. Now Winter Storm Quinn will continue to dump heavy snow on the Northeast Thursday.

(MORE: Winter Storm Central)

After Quinn departs Thursday night, we'll turn our attention to the next potential East Coast storm candidate.

To be clear, the impacts, if any, from this potential storm early next week are unknown at this time.

Specifics on the forecast will hinge on how the upper-level weather pattern evolves this weekend. Specifically, the evolution of energy in the upper atmosphere that is currently thousands of miles away from the eastern United States over far western Canada.

That energy will first bring snow to the Mountain West as it slides east on Friday, including the Cascades and the northern Rockies.

Upper-level energy from the northern Pacific Ocean will spread across the eastern states by late weekend or early next week, potentially aiding in the development of low pressure.

Thereafter, the energy will spread into the eastern states this weekend, and, once again, low pressure could strengthen near or off the East Coast early next week.

Some cold air should still be in place, partially due to the fresh snowpack from both Riley and Quinn.

Depending on its location, strength and track, the low-pressure system could be yet another coastal storm for parts of the Eastern Seaboard.
