PARSIPPANY, NJ - Next Nor’easter Nails Us with More White then Wet on Wednesday! Parsippany can get between 6 - 12 inches of snow.
With many still without power from Friday’s nor’easter (nearly 50,000 still in NNJ in Morris Hunterdon Sussex Warren and Somerset) and thousands in NY CT MA on North, and high water levels along coastal sections still a major issue, looks like it’s a go for our 2nd nor’easter this Wednesday. We have a classic Miller B Nor'easter (when low forms in Ohio Valley, weakening as it travels east and re develops off the east coast). Key differences this time around include more cold air and less severe wind (yet still strong enough to cause major issues) and plenty of tropical moisture. How much our coastal low deepens and strengthens will dictate how strong our wind gusts and accumulations are enhanced. While our typical mix line separating plowable vs manageable can’t be isolated w pinpoint accuracy yet, this nor’easter will be more white then wet and still powerful. There is concern for more isolated (not wide spread) power outages given heavy snow and winds gusting up to 30/40mph inland (up to poss 50mph in coastal sections). Especially with a very saturated ground along w some trees already with loose roots, some hanging by a thread. Continued pounding along coastal sections will occur.
