Forecasters: New, lesser storm may hit East Coast

Source: AP (Yahoo News)

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

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 in College Park, Md., which watches winter storms, put out a long-range notice Thursday saying a nor'easter was possible for mid-Atlantic and New England states by Election Day through next Thursday.

Unlike Sandy, this doesn't have a tropical component. This would be a normal wet storm coming through land in the Southeast U.S. and going into the water, combining with cold air coming south from the Great Lakes and then curving back into the mid-Atlantic.

2. I think it said it's forecast for Thursday

Not Tuesday. Maybe I'm wrong....

Never mind, I see they said Election Day to Thursday. But, I heard earlier that it was Thursday so I guess I just skipped that part. Sorry.

3. Looks like Wednesday next, not Tuesday.

From WUnderground.com:
Storm-weary U.S. residents pounded by Superstorm Sandy may have a new storm to contend with next Wednesday: an early-season Nor'easter is expected to impact the mid-Atlantic and New England with strong winds and heavy rain.

5. Glad to hear it's not on election day

Sorry to hear they have to suffer through another storm so close to the devastation of Sandy.

6. It's an odd thing....

after Sandy - my fellow New Yorkers seem to have an attitude of "Meh, just a plain ol' Nor'easter"

btw - the last Nor'easter we had dumped 2 feet of snow on us right before Halloween last year....
