Two Merging Systems Could Create An Even Bigger Storm Throughout The Northeast


AccuWeather predicts that two separate storms will converge in the Northeast this weekend, bringing gusty winds and heavy rain.

Storms building along the Canadian border and in the Gulf of Mexico may combine in the middle of the week and move toward the East Coast by the end of the week, according to AccuWeather.

“How nasty the weather becomes along the Eastern Seaboard this weekend will depend on whether or not the two storms phase [merge together],” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek said.

“But, even if the two remain separate, there will still be stormy conditions to contend with; stiff coastal winds and above-normal tides and minor coastal flooding possible.”

AccuWeather predicts that the storm brewing in the Gulf will be the stronger of the two systems, causing a “northward expansion of drenching rain with increasing winds” in Virginia, Maryland, and New Jersey on Friday and Saturday.

Rain is forecast along the coast throughout the first half of the weekend.

The National Weather Service forecasts showers on Tuesday night, March 18. Wednesday will be sunny with a high in the mid-50s and a risk of showers at night.

Thursday will be sunny with a high near 43, while Friday will be sunny with a high in the mid-40s. Rain is forecast to begin Friday evening and continue through Saturday night and maybe Sunday morning, according to the NWS.
