Hybrid storm to create travel nightmare in northeastern U.S.

Staff Writer | October 28, 2017
Two storms will converge on the northeastern United States and bring the likelihood of flooding, damaging winds, travel disruptions and power outages from Sunday to Monday.
Hybrid storm
Weather   Airline delays will increase
A storm with tropical origins, which was named Potential Tropical Cyclone 18 on Friday evening and could strengthen into Tropical Storm Philippe, will race northward and merge with a non-tropical storm from the Midwest later this weekend.

The result will be an intense storm with a period of heavy rain, strong winds and rough seas that slams the Northeast.

Travel conditions will deteriorate from south to north on Sunday and Sunday night.

Airline delays will increase at the major hubs from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City and Boston. The airline delays are likely to linger into Monday.

Monday morning rush hour from New York City to Boston and Albany, New York, is likely to be difficult to dangerous at times.

Tree limbs may be down in wooded neighborhoods, and low-lying areas, such as underpasses, may be flooded. School delays are possible.
