A white Thanksgiving? Next nor'easter could be headed our way

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but New Jersey may be receiving some unwelcome company for Thanksgiving.

Accuweather.com reports that computer models are showing another nor'easter may be forming along the East Coast during Thanksgiving week. Any flooding or travel issues will depend on how close the storm comes to the coast.

According to Patch, the nor'easter may form over the western Atlantic on Sunday, and bring rain and wind to the mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions through around the middle of the week. Cities that may be in the latest storm's line of fire include New York City, Philadelphia, Boston and Washington.

Any storm activity would be likely to hit New Jersey by Tuesday and Wednesday. New Jersey climatologist David Robinson said, according to NJ.com, "The storm warrants some attention, but not concern at this point.”

Early reports say the storm would only bring rain, as conditions will not be as cold as last week’s nor’easter. But snow could occur if the storm moved into colder air to the north over sections of New England.

Any storm activity also raises the possibility of travel delays on the highways and airports as Thanksgiving approaches. More will be learned on the track of the storm as the scenario develops.
