It’s shaping up to be a gloomy weekend in the Northeast as another storm system pushes into the region, bringing with it rain, wind and some snow that could make for some miserable early St. Patrick's Day celebrations.

This new storm threat comes on the heels of two previous ones that brought 2-3 inches of rain to the region earlier in the week.

The FOX Forecast Center said the new system is expected to move out of the Midwest by Saturday, with conditions deteriorating in the Northeast as precipitation develops from west to east, reaching New England by Saturday night.

"And there's so many St. Patrick's Day celebrations that are happening this weekend," FOX Weather Meteorologist Britta Merwin said. "I mean, I'm walking in a parade Saturday morning with my kids. So, hopefully, we can hold it off."

There may be enough cold air in place across the interior Northeast and northern New England for snow to fall during the storm's onset, which could then continue through Sunday.

Early forecast snow totals include more than 6 inches in the higher elevations of northern New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

But to the south, it's going to be another dose of rain after already picking up a few inches over the past week.

By the time the storm system moves out of the region at the end of the weekend, some parts of the Northeast could see 8 inches or more of rain between all three storms that impacted the region in the past week.

HOW HEAVY IS IT REALLY GOING TO RAIN?

In addition, the FOX Forecast Center said strong southerly winds could push water onshore, leading to significant coastal flooding from Massachusetts to Maine during high tide on Sunday morning.

Sunday is also the new Moon, so astronomical high tides will already be in place, which means it won't take much for coastal communities to be inundated.

At the end of the event on Sunday night, the FOX Forecast Center said a switch to strong northerly winds will push the rain/snow line farther south, which means cities such as Hartford in Connecticut, Providence in Rhode Island and Boston could see some snow before the storm winds down.
