There’s no rest for the tired, as our next big weather maker is on the doorstep, arriving Tuesday night.
“Wind and coastal flooding impacts will be closely tied to the strength and exact track of the storm”, he added.
An area of low pressure sliding through the Midwest will begin to affect Wisconsin late Sunday night and Monday. This would, therefore, be the snowier of the two outcomes and lead to a sizable and plowable snow for most of eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey, with the steadiest snow falling later Tuesday night and most of Wednesday.
The challenge will start all over again after Wednesday, and area residents are advised to monitor the forecast for updates as threats linger beyond this time frame. “We’re looking at 8 to 11 inches, all depending on when it turns from rain to snow”.
After Wednesday’s storm, the rest of the week looks tranquil.
Temperatures in other parts of central and east Canada will likely be above average over the next few days, while parts of BC and southwestern Saskatchewan will have below average temperatures. Given the possibility of high snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour, we anticipate very hard travel across the area on Monday. Snowfall rates will be up to an inch per hour for a short time. The highest snow totals will be in the north central United States, including North Dakota, South Dakota, and parts of Minnesota. Of course, exact path of the surface low will dictate where that narrow band of very heavy snow sets up.
Snow and rain winds down and ends Wednesday night.
Predawn temperatures hovered around the freezing mark Monday morning on Long Island, but they should rise into the mid-40s later in the day under cloudy skies, forecasters said.
Precipitation Type & Accumulations: Right now we think most of the state gets snow with some mixing or a change to rain possible in southeastern CT. “It won’t be the same devastating storm in terms of wind and wet snow, but certainly a significant and impactful one”. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.
