Snow Brushing DC, Philly, NYC and Boston ThursdayThe storm will produce wet snow and flurries
A weak storm that was over the Florida peninsula Wednesday has turned northward along the East Coast as expected, producing a bit of wet snow and flurries along the mid-Atlantic and southern New England coasts.
The storm center will stay well offshore, but can bring spotty a dusting to an inch of snow in a few spots from the I-95 swath from Richmond and Washington, D.C., to New York City and Boston.
The best chance for a couple of inches of snow is on eastern Long Island and over Cape Cod Thursday afternoon and night. By this time the storm may be strong enough to start grabbing more moisture.
The main part of the storm will stay offshore over the Atlantic Thursday, but is forecast to swing ashore around the Gulf of St. Lawrence region, perhaps as a blizzard Thursday night into Friday. Canada Weather Expert Brett Anderson has more on the storm in his blog.
