Snow to Accompany Return of Cold in East, Midwest

Still more chilly precipitation in the forecast for next week

Frigid arctic air looks to make a return to the Northeast and Midwest this week following some of the warmest weather the regions have had so far this year, but the colder weather will not return alone.

A series of quick-hitting storms will bring several opportunities for snow across the regions, including the cities of New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Boston.

Although communities may receive a quick coating to an inch or two from the storms through Tuesday, it does not appear like any of them will bring a substantial amount of snowfall like the nor'easter did nearly two weeks ago.

The first of these fast-tracking storms will pass over the mid-Atlantic and southern New England on Sunday night followed by the first shot of cold air for Monday.

Due to the recent stretch of mild temperatures, precipitation will likely start off as or mix with rain in many locations before changing over to snow.

Even if the snow does not accumulate on roadways, it may still lead to slick travel for motorists where the snow initially melts before temperatures dip below freezing. This could result in areas of black ice for the Monday morning commute.

Another weak system looks to track over the Ohio Valley and mid-Atlantic on Tuesday, bringing the chance for another coating to an inch of snow to Detroit, Cleveland, Columbus and Pittsburgh.

Wednesday will bring some big changes to both the Midwest and Northeast as a third storm begins to take shape, possibly bringing the most snow out of all three systems.

It is still unclear the exact path that the storm will take. The closer the storm tracks to the East Coast, the greater the likelihood for disruptive snow along the I-95 corridor.

However, there is still the chance that the storm tracks farther out to sea, bringing very little snow to residents of the Northeast.

While folks along the East Coast will be monitoring the threat of snow for midweek, those in the Midwest will begin to experience the next surge of arctic air due to the polar vortex.

Despite the track of the midweek snowstorm, this blast of polar air is poised to reach the Northeast by Thursday and remaining in place through the rest of the week.

I don't know what the big deal is about the weather, it's winter sometimes it's cold, sometimes it snow's sometimes it does nothing, it's what has been happening for as long as we've been keeping track of the weather.

Again, don't know what to say besides I am still not sure what the attraction is for the East Coast ??
Will remain on the West - (What Jimmy Fallon should have done with the Tonight Show) !!

I have a feeling someone needs to really look at these maps.
Your leading statement says "More snow for Midwest".
Please show me a Midwestern state on either of these maps.
More false lead-in by the Weekenders running HUFF.

I think they must've fallen off with JOE's earthquakes while he was watching the bikini floss disappear and his imagination went along with it.

The earth has experienced climate change since the beginning of time. If you don't believe that go look for a dinosaur. By the way over 90% of all species that have ever been on earth are now extent so you doomsday believers better stick your head in a hole and scream.

And the true Children of God say come Lord. I have no idea what you are trying to say, but you don't know me or my beliefs. I know the truth, and all I can say is, come.
