Eastern Carolina -

The storm sweeping New England rolled through eastern Carolina Thursday night dropping anywhere between 2-4" of rain.

That storm is set to transform into, what national forecasters are saying, one of the top five biggest snow storms to hit the Boston area.

The reason Thursday's rain event is transforming into a substantial storm, is because it is clashing with a second storm.

This second storm brought half a foot of snow to some mid-west states. Both storms are colliding over Boston.
