After Sandy, 2012 Nor'easter Forecast Turning Grim
National Weather Service now calls storm 'significant.'
Pennsylvania still reeling without power as temperatures took a decidedly colder turn the last two nights now face the prospect of a major Nor'easter striking the state Wednesday into Thursday.
The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for the tri-state area, and it's predictions have grown more dire in recent days.
The Eastern Pennsylvania Weather Authority blog says that locally the Lehigh Valley could see as much as four inches of snow.
"A significant coastal storm will likely impact the tri-state region Wednesday and Thursday," the service said Monday. "Confidence continues to increase that strong, gusty winds ... rain/wintry precipitation ... coastal flooding and additional beach erosion will result from this system."
The storm is set to strike a little more than a week after superstorm Sandy.
