Forecasters: New, Lesser Storm May Hit East Coast

WASHINGTON (AP) — Forecasters say another messy — and wintry — storm may cause post-Election Day problems for an already weather weary East Coast.

But meteorologists add that it’s six days out, so that’s rather early to get too worried. The forecast could change before it hits late next week.

The National Weather Service’s forecast center that watches winter storms put out a long-range notice Thursday, saying bluntly that a nor’easter is possible for the mid-Atlantic and New England.

Forecaster Bruce Sullivan says it wouldn’t be as bad as Superstorm Sandy and isn’t tropical. But it could include snow in interior New England and New York, beach erosion and high winds for areas hit by Sandy, and moderate or heavier rainfall.

    Relax! They want everyone to be scared and terrified! It’s snow! New England gets snow!!! It’s part of the whole 4 season thing… This isn’t shocking or breaking news and it probably will be a few inches or whatever and melt the next day- but then again They told us in western mass for weeks that hurricane sandy would practically devastate us and most of us ended up with no power for a day or two; now they’re saying a “lesser” storm which will probably be the killer storm and another repeat of last years October storm combined with the tornado we lived through in Monson..:
