Snowstorm to Slam Northeast, New England

Northern New England could see 6 to 12 inches of snow

Yet another snowstorm is taking aim at the Northeast with northern New England and the St. Lawrence Valley bracing for the snowstorm's worst.

The snow that accumulated up to a half of a foot in northern Kentucky will spread northward from the central Appalachians to New England and the St. Lawrence Valley through Tuesday night.

Enough cold air is even in place for snow and/or a wintry mix to occur across Virginia's Shenandoah Valley through Monday morning, leading to 2 to 4 inches of snow in the cities of Winchester and Harrisonburg.

The snowstorm will be disruptive, bringing interruptions to daily routines and treacherous travel.

The snow reached the western I-80 corridor in Pennsylvania by daybreak on Monday and will fall just north of the New York State Thruway and western Massachusetts by sunset on Monday. By the start of Tuesday, the snow will have begun across the St. Lawrence Valley and most of northern New England.

For a larger version of this map, please visit the AccuWeather.com Winter Weather Center.
The storm will be gaining strength during that time, allowing it to unleash more than a foot of snow in the higher terrain of northern New England by Wednesday.

Widespread amounts of 6 to 12 inches are expected elsewhere across northern New England and the St. Lawrence Valley, including the cities of Burlington, Vt., Concord, N.H., Caribou and Bangor, Maine.

Similar totals (15-30 cm) are also in store for the neighboring Canadian cities of Montreal and Quebec City.

Farther to the south -- along and south of the northern shore of Lake Ontario, the eastern New York State Thruway, the northern Massachusetts border and the coasts of New Hampshire and Maine -- the snow will mix with or change to sleet, freezing rain and/or rain.

However, that will not prevent significant totals from being measured.

AccuWeather.com meteorologists still expect between up to 6 inches of snow along the Twin Tiers of northern Pennsylvania/southern New York, with up to a foot of snow in the Catskills of New York and the Berkshires of Massachusetts.

While heavier totals will be measured to the north and west, residents of Portland, Maine, will be digging out of 4 to 8 inches after the storm winds down on Tuesday night.

"As we have warned about this past week, there is potential for the rate of the snow to be intense and the accumulation heavy and wet," stated AccuWeather.com expert meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

"Enough wet, clinging snow can fall to down tree limbs and power lines in some areas," continued Sosnowski. That danger that is greatest from Elmira, N.Y., and Lock Haven, Pa., to Portland, Maine.

Snowstorm to Graze I-95: DC to NYC to Boston
New England Flooding, Coastal Concerns
Severe Weather Threat: Shreveport, Nashville, Birmingham

Other cities in this threat zone include Binghamton and Albany, N.Y., Pittsfield, Mass., and Concord and Portsmouth, N.H.

Rain, meanwhile, will win out over the snow along the Interstate 95 corridor from Boston to New York City to Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., potentially leading to minor flooding issues in southern New England.

Snow and sleet will fall in Philadelphia and New York City this evening before changing over to rain, so roads could be slippery for the evening commute.

The Tuesday morning commute in Boston could be a slippery one with snow and sleet expected. Around 1–3 inches of snow and sleet will accumulate in Boston, while 3–6 inches will fall west of 128. Worcester Hills and southern New Hampshire will get buried by up to a foot of snow.

Well, Here in New England we are used to a lot of snow. The thing is, even while we know its late March and any snow we get won't stick around for long its still hard to hear more is coming, when we are watching what we have now melt and the early srping growth beginning to break ground. I would like to see the forsythia and tulips this year without several inches of snow on the ground for background. Can't wait to get out and start gardening season yard work.

First 4 paragraphs do not say "WHEN" lol, which should be one of the first things listed in any article, especially one about weather.

@Shelle - Sry snow in Minnesota is just NOT news lol, and you set yourself up for that one.

BFD. It's snowing up north in the winter. And this is a surprise? Now if Miami got 12" it would be news worthy.
