Spring Nor'easter On The Way

The calendar might say it's spring, but people in the Northeast could be dealing with yet another winter storm in just a few days.

The New York Daily News reports there's the potential for a "Nor'easter bomb" come Tuesday and Wednesday. Essentially, the National Weather Service says that "bomb" would develop quickly and dump more than a foot of snow on already hard-hit areas.

A meteorologist told The Star-Ledger: "This is going to be a very strong storm, there's no question about that." While another meteorologist at the National Weather Service told the paper: "This has the potential to be a very significant storm. ... but it is too soon to get any more focused than that."

WPVI took a look at the chance of the storm making a huge impact on land. "Right now, the possibility of it coming closer to the coast to give a heavy swath of plowable snow along I-95 - right now it looks like a 40 percent chance."

At this point, the storm is difficult to forecast since it's still in its developing stages. KYW-TV points out there's also the chance all that snow, and even rain, could simply fall over the Atlantic Ocean - leaving the Northeast out of the woods.

Forecasters also predict the storm to bring strong winds and possible flooding along the Atlantic coast.
