Coastal storm pounds northeast

A major coastal storm has again hit the Northeast, bringing snow and rain as well as high winds to the I-95 corridor from Washington, D.C. to Boston. The same storm that brought rain and snow to the Midwest earlier this week has now moved off of the coast of the Mid-Atlantic. After moving over the ocean, the storm began to rapidly strengthen, resulting in additional precipitation and high winds for much of the Northeast region. As of Thursday evening, the National Weather Service had issued winter storm warnings, high wind warnings, and flood warnings up and down the coast in anticipation of dangerous conditions created by the coastal low.

For the next few days, we will be dealing with the remnants of this system as it moves inland and dissipates. Rain showers and breezy conditions will persist for today. The weekend will see scattered rain and snow showers.
