While the storms often impact coastal areas, this week’s nor’easter tracked much farther to the west, meaning precipitation in coastal cities arrived as rain while inland locations received heavy, wet snow. Wind advisories were in effect for much of the Northeast and New England coastline, as well as a portion of the northern Appalachians.
Before arriving to the Northeast, the storm dropped heavy rain across the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic coast.
