According to AccuWeather.com meteorologist Michael Piggott, the lowest expected pressure from this storm will be around 980 mb. Sandy was around 940 mb at landfall. One of the best indications of a storm's strength is the barometric pressure.
"Since the nor'easter's pressure will not be as deep, its winds will not be as strong, nor will there be as much rain and snow," he said.
Despite the fact that this storm will not as strong, it can still add on to the problems many in the Northeast are already facing. Heavy, wet snow may cause tree branches to snap and knock out power lines. Areas in Maine and New Hampshire are expected to get up to a quarter of an inch of ice that could also lead to power outages.
