Winter Storm Quinn: Where Is It, When Will It Hit?

Less than a week after winter storm Riley brought heavy rains, strong winds and snow to the Northeast, there’s another March storm on the way, this time named Quinn.

Monday, winter storm Quinn, that started in the West, was over the Northern Plains and the Midwest with plenty of wind and snow. The storm was causing winter weather and blizzard warnings across a large part of the country where wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour and up to a foot of snow were expected, the National Weather Service warned.

The NWS also warned that the nor’easter would bring more of the conditions that the mid-Atlantic and Northeast saw last week from heavy snow and strong winds to extreme flooding in some places. The storm is expected to begin in the Northeast midweek, with the worst of it really hitting starting on Wednesday throughout the day, according to The Weather Channel's forecast.

This time, the areas along the coastline are more likely to see snow that sticks with significant accumulation compared to what was seen with winter storm Riley. The same risks of power outages and downed trees are possible with this storm due to the high winds and the possibility of wet and heavy snow.

Most of the mid-Atlantic will only see rain, but New York City and cities north of it will see higher accumulations of snow.
