Storm Delivers More Snow From Great Lakes to Mid-AtlanticThe system will produce a general light coating to a couple inches
More light snow is on the way for towns and communities from the Great Lakes to the mid-Atlantic as yet another fast-moving storm originating from western Canada, called an Alberta Clipper, races east.
The latest system is just one in a parade of clippers that have been impacting many of the same areas since late last week.
As is the case with most clippers, this storm system will produce a general light coating to a couple inches of snow with higher amounts possible in the higher elevations of the Appalachians. While significant snowfall is not expected, the snow will be a nuisance; especially for travelers.
Snow showers from the clipper will disrupt the morning commute in the cities of Madison, Milwaukee and Chicago.
As the day progresses, the snow will spread towards the east impacting the cities of Indianapolis, Columbus, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Many cities from western and central Pennsylvania westward into parts of the Ohio Valley will have a messy evening commute.
On Monday night, the snow showers will continue to race towards the East Coast, affecting areas along the I-95 corridor from New York City southward to the Washington, D.C. area.
When it is all said and done, a general swath of 1–3 inches of snow will have fallen from southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois into portions of the mid-Atlantic region.
According to AccuWeather.com meteorologist Brian Edwards, "Up to another 6 inches of accumulation is possible in the higher elevations of the Laurel Highlands in Pennsylvania, as well as the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia. Some light accumulations are also possible in the higher elevations of western Virginia."
The combination of the falling snow and cold temperatures in place throughout the region will make for slick and snow-covered roadways. Visibility will be reduced in spots, as well. The poor driving conditions will certainly lead to slower travel. Travelers may want to plan some extra time to get to their destination.
This storm will not be the last in the parade of clippers. At least two more clippers are in the works for many of the same areas. Stay tuned to AccuWeather.com as we detail these clippers in the coming days.
