THE USA will be hit by another dramatic storm this week bringing with it dangerous heavy snow and fierce winds as the storm looks set to smash the coast in two weeks. Here are live updates and the latest news on storm Skylar’s path and tracking.
Winter Storm Skylar will bring heavy snow and gusty winds to the Northeast early this week, marking the third coastal storm to affect the region in a span of fewer than two weeks.
Skylar will also lay down a blanket of snow from the Ohio Valley into the Appalachians before its arrival on the East Coast.
The National Weather Service has issued winter weather advisories from parts of Northwestern Pennsylvania, New Jersey up through Maine.
More than 38 million are under a winter weather advisory or warning from the Tennessee Valley into New England including New York City, Boston, and Portland, Maine.
Snow will move into the region on Monday evening, spreading into far northern Maine by late afternoon Tuesday – with up to 20 inches possible in some areas, the NWS says.

Thousands of people were left without power when the last two nor’easters hit the USA.
In New Jersey , PSE&G crews are still trying to restore service to about 800 customers. At one point, well over 100,000 PSE&G customers were without power.
JCPL has about 4,000 customers without power but says it plans to restore service to everyone by Monday night.
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy responded to all of the outages, tweeting over the weekend: “As of now, @JCP_L has committed to restoring power by this evening for all customers who lost power during the first storm.
“We will hold them accountable for this promise to the people of New Jersey.
“Once all power has been restored to every New Jersey resident and business, our administration will begin an investigation into what went wrong and how utilities could have responded better.”
