Storm to Hit 600 Miles of Atlantic Coast through the Weekend
ATLANTIC COAST - A storm over the Atlantic Ocean will bring heavy rains and gusty winds to part of the eastern coast of the United States this week, and last all the way through the weekend.
The storm will cause problems at the coast and could lead to shipping delays to parts of the Interstate 85 and 95 corridors, AccuWeather is reporting.
Rain is expected to affect areas from Florida to southern Virginia through Friday, where most cities will get rainfall in the amount of 1-3 inches. During Friday into Saturday, the storm will likely expand northward through Virginia and into New Jersey, AccuWeather says.
