Nor'easter snow From Delaware to Maine expected

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK - - While a powerful nor'easter lashes the Sandy-ravaged coast, snow will fall over a narrow swath of the interior Northeast today into Thursday. 

A storm that slid off the East coast on Tuesday intensify rapidly near the mid-Atlantic coast on Wednesday. 

High winds, coastal flooding and torrential rainfall will impact the mid-Atlantic coast, including the Sandy-battered New Jersey and Long Island.

Colder air across the interior Northeast will allow snow to mix in or fall alone by Wednesday afternoon. A narrow band of accumulating snow will develop on the backside of the storm from eastern Pennsylvania to southern New York state and central New Jersey.

The heaviest snow, with the potential for a half a foot of accumulation, is forecast to develop over northeastern Pennsylvania to part of southeastern New York and into northwestern New Jersey.

A wintry mix and snow will reach over portions of Delaware, southern New Jersey, southeastern New York and central New England Wednesday into Wednesday night.

Enough snow can fall to make some roads slippery and dangerous over interior, hilly areas.

The weight of snow, sleet and ice may be enough to down some tree branches onto power lines. Scattered power outages are not out of the question.

High winds could add further stress to tree limbs across the interior Northeast, while also contributing to wintry RealFeel® temperatures.

Temperatures will be cold enough for some wet snow in Philadelphia and Wilmington, Del., for a time today into tonight.

"It would have to snow very hard to stick to the roads [this far south]; however, there is a chance that it could happen during Wednesday evening rush hour," AccuWeather Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said Tuesday.
