...i just saw this story, im copy and pasting it so i can leave out the part about how the weather might effect election day. the good news (?) is this weather system is suppose to be farther north than the coast areas but in light of how hard everyone was hit in sandy i figure a heads up is worth it. A nor'easter bound for New England may be brewing, and it could hit as early as Election Day, according to a preliminary forecast from the National Weather Service. The preliminary extended forecast issued by the agency's Hydrometeorological Prediction Center (HPC) Thursday morning noted that the possible nor'easter will likely be "much less extreme" than Hurricane Sandy, and it would produce effects away from the regions hardest hit by the superstorm. "At this time it looks as though coastal impacts would be farther north along the New England coast than we saw with Sandy. Snowfall would be confined to northern New England," the Weather Channel noted.
