Nor'easter moves into vulnerable areas

Well, we’re seeing insult to injury all along the Northeast Coast as a Nor’easter moves in and pounds areas that have had historic damage from Hurricane Sandy a week and a half ago.   Prayers are needed as people try to take shelter from yet another storm that could cause more damage, more power outages and more heartache.

This Nor’easter is bringing a mix of rain/snow and freezing precipitation along the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.  


The worst conditions will occur later today; especially tonight through tomorrow morning for the areas hardest hit by Sandy.  Winds tonight near the coast will gust to 60mph and coastal flooding is likely as northeasterly winds increase.  


High Wind Warnings and Coastal Flood Warnings are in effect.  The heaviest, wet snow will fall across interior and mountainous portions of the Northeast including the Poconos, Catskills, Adirondacks and New England.  Snow will accumulate inland across New Jersey and Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia, where Winter Weather Advisories are in effect.    


Some of the forecast models are showing a more  significant snowfall potential near the coast, so stay tuned to your local forecasts, and we’ll continue to update you from the Fox News weather center.

And unfortunately for the hundreds of thousands of people still without power, it is going to be bitterly cold tonight.


Another hard night for this battered coastline.  Please keep them in your prayers.
