Snow-Weary Northeast to Face New Storm Today

Wet snow is in store from Washington, D.C. to NYC, New England

A storm bringing snow to the southern Plains and a rain/snow mix to the Ohio Valley will reach the mid-Atlantic and southern New England coast during the middle of the week.

While the event will is not likely to translate into a major storm, it will bring a couple of inches of wet snow and slippery travel to part of the I-95 and I-81 corridors.

Marginal temperatures will continue to be an issue with rain versus snow for this storm as it pushes toward the upper coast of the mid-Atlantic later Wednesday and Wednesday night. The track of the system will also be crucial as to how much moisture is thrown into the region.

The first part of the storm would be rain for areas from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia and perhaps as far north as New York City, Long Island and southern New England. However, it is possible that just like over part of the central Appalachians earlier in the day, that a change from rain to a period of wet snow takes place.

If the snow comes down hard for a short time, it could quickly cause roads to transition from wet to slushy to snow covered in some cases in time for part of the evening drive Wednesday.

At any rate, it does not appear that the storm will bring a widespread heavy accumulation of snow from Kentucky to the mid-Atlantic, but pockets of a few inches of snow are indeed possible.

Only a storm tracking farther north in the East would mean a band of moderate to locally heavy snow setting up from the central Appalachians to southern New England, because such a storm would be somewhat stronger than a system passing by farther south.

AccuWeather.com meteorologists continue to weigh the storm's track to keep aware of the potential for a larger storm during the coming weekend in much of the eastern half of the nation.

Even if the storm this weekend swings wide of the coast, additional large storms are likely for the eastern half of the nation through the end of February.

Cold air will push into the Deep South and could even bring a couple of nights of frosty temperatures to central Florida.

The atmosphere appears to be building a pipeline of storms for the next few weeks.

oh no! it is winter and we are getting snow? THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END!!!!

what happened to this country? oh yeah the government run media wants us all to panic over small storms so we forget about how they are screwing us.

i think if a storm like a few days ago makes you panic, you should just kill yourself. save the rest of us the hassle of your panicky driving to get to the store to buy all the milk and water you can stuff into your p.o.s. foreign car. you people would not have lasted long back before the mid 90's. you know the time where people were tough. we had winners and losers in intramural sports and game, words didn't hurt anyone and a storm was a storm and people didn't panic about them.

buncha over sensitive dummies....

It's been snowing here in Kentucky since last night, big, white, fluffy flakes and it's still snowing but not as much. The temps are above freezing so it's gonna melt real fast. It's supposed to snow again tonight. I love the snow.
