Winter Storm Quinn will conclude its cross-country journey as a Northeast coastal storm with heavy snow and strong winds, contributing to difficult travel conditions and potentially resulting in tree damage and power outages.

Our Cruise Ship Weather wind speed animation shows high winds up to 70 mph off shore as far south as Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and Charleston,  South Carolina and in the north Atlantic mid week, which could affect cruise ships heading out to or returning from ports in the Caribbean.

Areas near the coast could remain mostly snow, as well, depending on the track and strength of the low. In the New York City metro area, precipitation is currently forecast to begin as rain or a rain/snow mix Wednesday, then change over to wet snow late-day or at night, affecting the Wednesday PM commute.

Farther north, the potential for significant snow in Boston and Providence, Rhode Island, will depend on the track of the low. If the low tracks too close to the coast, rain could cut down on accumulations in those cities, with heavier totals just to their northwest. A farther offshore track of the low would bring heavy snow into those cities.

Last week, Winter Storm Riley knocked out power to more than 1.9 million,  more than 900,000 customers from the mid-Atlantic to New England.
