World News – CA – Pre-Halloween Soaker, powered by Zeta, will bring a dose of winter weather to the northeast


Hurricane Zeta will strike the storm-weary Gulf Coast the biggest hit this week, but forecasters expect its effects to be significant across the United States that the rapid movement of the storm will continue after it makes landfall and moves inland – even when it loses wind intensity over land and weakens into a rainstorm tropical The system may not fully merge with a winter storm that thundered travel and cut off the power with severe icing in the southern plains; however, the two storms will mix together enough to trigger rains that could cause flooding risk in the northeast – and help from winter weather in parts of the region.

Zeta’s rain shield will reach well north of the storm center as tropical humidity will rise and over a wedge of fresh air in place to the northeast

« Zeta rain will spread over parts of West Virginia, Virginia, western Maryland and southwestern Pennsylvania before sunrise Thursday, » said Brett Anderson, meteorologist main AccuWeather

« The rain will continue to advance northeasterly at a rapid rate and spread southward through New York State and southern New England Thursday afternoon Anderson added

Morning and Thursday afternoon trips to Baltimore, Washington, DC, Richmond, Virginia and Pittsburgh could be slowed down and at times dangerous due to torrential rain, poor visibility and slippery conditions should last until midday in Philadelphia, and it will be the evening walk in New York and Boston that could be riddled with delays

« The combination of fallen leaves and torrential rain will lead to clogged storm sewers that can cause flooding on streets and back roads, » said Bill Deger, senior meteorologist at AccuWeather Fallen leaves could make roads even more slippery in the area

In addition to the miserable weather, there will be enough Zeta traffic to bring gusty winds from Virginia to the coasts of Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey on Thursday Gusts of between 40 and 50 mph can occur in this swath, which may be sufficient, when combined with heavy rain and wet soil conditions to tip some poorly rooted trees And with that risk will come the threat of sporadic blackouts

Zeta will continue her race towards the North Atlantic on Thursday evening, but after that the situation will get even more complicated The storm sweeping east of the plains and the colder air plunging from the Midwest and southern Canada will enter. game in the model

The Southern Plains storm will lose much of its frigid weather characteristics as it heads east, but the injection of cold air from the Midwest and southern Canada will offset it somewhat. will be a change from rain to snow over parts of northern and western Pennsylvania to parts of upstate New York and central and northern New England

« This change in winter precipitation will likely just be a simple demonstration of wet snowflakes in the valleys of central and northeastern Pennsylvania to the Hudson Valley in New State York and the Boston, Massachusetts area from Thursday evening to Friday morning, « AccuWeather Brian Wimer, senior meteorologist, said

However, the higher elevations of northern Pennsylvania, southern New York state, the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, and southern parts of the Green and White Mountains in Vermont and New Hampshire will pick up a few inches of moisture and snow, added Wimer

A 10-inch AccuWeather Local StormMax ™ of snow should fall over the ridges and peaks of the Catskills and the Green and White Mountains

Motorists venturing onto secondary roads in high mountain altitudes should be prepared for sleet conditions and poor visibility

A small amount of slush may fall over the hills of northwest New Jersey and western Connecticut It is possible that the rainstorm will end with wet snowflakes in a part of the New York metro area, on the south coast of New England and possibly even Long Island, New York, on Friday morning

The cold blast will also introduce a significant amount of dry air This configuration could result in a sharp northern edge of the snow and rain area in the northern parts of New York State and New England If the dry air is moving south at a rapid rate, it could significantly reduce the amount and duration of the snow, which may only last a few hours to begin with.

While Zeta is not solely responsible for the snow in the northeast, due to his quick outing on Thursday night and the plains storm on his heels and helping in winter conditions, there have been cases where tropical systems brought snow in the US October is the most likely time of year for tropical systems to behave bilaterally with showers and snow

Super storm Sandy drew cold air on its western flank and produced up to a few feet of snow over the central and southern Appalachians in late October 2012

After leaving the east coast of Florida in October 2005, moisture from Hurricane Wilma fueled a coastal storm, which caused heavy waves and erosion of beaches along the northeastern part of the river. ‘US coast, with high winds and snow from Pennsylvania to New England, where over 20 inches of snow fell

There is still a low chance of a total last minute phase of Storm Zeta and the Plains or a rapid strengthening of the Plains Storm as it approaches the coast This remote scenario could unload some heavy snowfall over much of central and southern New England, even at some low and coastal elevations

Regardless, much of the northeast can expect a dry and cool Halloween weekend in the wake of the storm duo given that a dip south into the jet stream will persist in the northeast until next week, an outbreak of cold air is expected to sweep the Great Lakes on Sunday toward the central and northern Appalachians and the northeast coast through Sunday evening and Monday
