A multi-threat Nor'easter will produce heavy, wet snow inland, strong winds with a mix of rain and snow farther south, and coastal flooding.

The time frame for the storm is Monday night, March 13 into early Wednesday morning, March 15, according to the National Weather Service.

Areas north of the I-84 corridor marked in purple in the first image above are expected to see extreme impacts, with major impacts in areas marked in red.

Many areas north of the I-84 corridor should see 8 inches or more of accumulation, with the highest amounts of up to 18 inches. (See the second image above from the National Weather Service.)

Precipitation from the Nor'easter will arrive as rain and rain mixed with snow before a changeover to snow in much of the Northeast Monday night. Precipitation will then continue at times into just before daybreak on Wednesday.

Wind gusts will range from 40 to 70 miles per hour starting Monday night, March 13. (Click on the third image above.)
