Another Storm Could Hit New York Next Week, Forecasters Warn
NEW YORK CITY — Another storm could strike New York next week as the city continues to recover from the devastating impact of Hurricane Sandy, forecasters warned.
Rain, wind and possibly snow could arrive on the Southeastern Coast as early as Election Day on Tuesday, before moving up the mid-Atlantic and New England coasts by Wednesday, according to Accuweather.
Forecasters stressed that the potential storm, which is not tropical, would not be nearly as severe as Sandy but could nonetheless bring adverse conditions as the city continues reeling from power outages, flood damage and economic hardship.
“The worst case scenario for Sandy-ravaged areas next week would unfold if the storm rapidly intensifies along the mid-Atlantic coast,” Accuweather senior meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said, noting it could lead to rising tides and beach erosion.
The storm will also be accompanied by chilly temperatures, with highs of 47 degrees expected on Tuesday and Wednesday, and lows of 40 and 39 degrees, respectively.
Forecasters added that the storm could weaken or intensify depending on weather patterns.
