Winter Storm Skylar: When and Where Will the Latest Nor'easter Hit?

First there was winter storm Riley, then there was winter storm Quinn—and from Monday night into Tuesday morning, winter storm Skylar is set to hit the Northeast, the third in just two weeks for the coast and interior portions of the region.

The storm is mainly threatening the coast of New England, with some snow totals varying from a few inches to a foot in certain areas, The Weather Channel reported. The storm was over the Atlantic Ocean on Monday and expected to hit the mid-Atlantic region of the country Monday night before heading up the coast Tuesday to the Northeast, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Skylar was already dumping heavy snow on the Appalachian Mountains, West Virginia and Kentucky on Monday. The storm brought power outages and blizzard conditions to those states.

Winter storm warnings and weather advisories are in effect across New England. Warnings in southern New England are set to start Monday evening and extend through Tuesday evening. Further north, in areas such as Maine and New Hampshire, the warnings are set to begin Monday evening and extend all the way through Wednesday morning, as predictions Monday showed that those areas should expect 12 to 18 inches of snow.

Further inland, in the eastern Catskills and the mid-Hudson Valley, about 3 to 6 inches were expected from Monday evening until Tuesday evening, according to NWS predictions.

Skylar was also expected to bring strong winds along with the snow, and The Weather Channel predicted Monday morning that the storm would undergo bombogenesis, or a rapid drop in pressure that would cause the storm to intensify.

The storm was given the name Skylar by The Weather Channel; the NWS only names tropical storms and hurricanes, not winter storms.
