Ways Winter Storm Quinn Isn't Like the Last Nor'easter

The morning commute was going smoothly in most areas Wednesday, as the storm had not yet kicked in to gear in most spots. He added that in Providence, the snow may change over to rain around 6 p.m. after minimal accumulation.

Yet workers like Tymire Gould who had to courageous the treacherous commute into the city to ensure the sidewalks and streets were cleared for pedestrians, the winter storm is just a part of the job. Coastal alerts were issued from New Jersey to Massachusetts (AAP).

If the storm follows an off-shore track, snow totals will go up in the city and along the coast with less snow across the interior. Unlike the last one which featured strong damaging wind gusts as its main course, this coastal storm should have less wind, but quite a bit more snow, certainly for areas outside of the Poconos. "People on the coast and with travel interests in the Northeast should monitor the progress of the potential storm". A truck was hit by a falling tree on a Greenwich, Connecticut, highway early Wednesday evening.

Philadelphia, New York and Boston could see fair amounts of snow, but areas inland could receive even more.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy fears that power outages will be widespread throughout the state, and declared a state of emergency Tuesday evening in anticipation. It also rattled portions of eastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey. From late morning to early evening Wednesday, all bets are off as snow, sleet, and rain pour from the sky. Unlike Friday's weather, this storm is capable of bringing snow across most of the region.

"The snow will be fairly wet and heavy, so that combined with wind could lead to additional power outages", said Joe Dellicarpini, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Taunton, Mass. The heaviest precipitation will occur Wednesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service's NY office.

An advisory for Jefferson and Lewis counties starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday and ends at 5 a.m. Saturday.

One piece of good news for the snow-weary: This mid-week snow won't be almost as wet and heavy as Friday's. Snow rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour are possible, mostly north and west of New York City.

Amtrak canceled some train service Wednesday, and commuter rail trains in Philadelphia are operating on a weekend schedule. The vast majority of the snow showers should wrap up Tuesday night.

"This shifts to (Southern New England) tonight, so don't be surprised to hear thunder or see lightning!", the Weather Service said.

Winds: Winds will gust up to 25-35 miles an hour (instead of 50-60 mph in our last storm).
