A storm will move northeastward off the East Coast, strengthening into a nor’easter this weekend.
While the storm will merely graze the mid-Atlantic and northeastern United States with intermittent precipitation, it could hit parts of eastern Maine and the Canadian Maritimes hard with heavy snow and increasing winds.
The strengthening storm will spread a swath of light rain northward along the East coast after drenching Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas on Friday. This storm will interact with a weakening storm near the Great Lakes and spread snow showers across the interior Northeast, southern Quebec and Great Lakes on Saturday.
Airline delays are possible in Atlanta, Orlando and Charlotte, North Carolina, and other hubs in the southern United States for a time.
