A tornado snow storm could bring hazardous conditions to the east coast this weekend, meteorologists have warned.

AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Adam Douty told The New York Post that although most forecasts point toward a ‘big storm’ this weekend, the ‘impact all depends on where it’s going to track along the East Coast.’

Heavy snow, ice, high winds and floods are possible if weather forecasts don’t show the storm.

If business as usual, the Easter bank holiday could see coastal flooding and beach erosion.

The highest risk of several inches of snow is in the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions, meteorologists said.

Douty said the holiday could affect southern states of Maine and North Carolina, with Massachusetts hardest hit by snowfall.

The Philadelphia U.S. Meteorological Service’s office also reiterated Tuesday that current forecasts for the storm are comparable to other 3 to 5 day forecasts by past major storms that should be monitored very closely.

A bomb cyclone is a storm that grows rapidly, leading to a considerable drop in air pressure.
