‘Storm of a lifetime’: Fierce blizzard unlike any seen for 20 YEARS is hurtling towards East Coast
The 'snowstorm of a lifetime' is set to swamp the Northeast this week, dumping as much as two feet of snow in some cities. The National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center is warning of heavy, 'perhaps crippling' snow in the mid-Atlantic region, including the Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia metro areas. Although it's still early, computer forecast models all see a windy, strong slow-moving storm hitting the entire region as of Friday night.
Forecasters claim it has the potential to develop into a blizzard unlike any seen for 20 years. With high tides, severe flooding is expected on the coast. And winds will reach 60mph causing power outages, forecasters predict.
