Ice, Snow Wind Down Across Mid-Atlantic, Northeast
UPDATED 9:30 AM EST, December 9, 2013
UPDATED By WeatherBug Sr. Meteorologist, James West
The weekend`s snowy and icy weather is continuing into the work week, making roads slick and producing power outages across the Northeast and inland Mid-Atlantic. Luckily, the worst of this storm is over.
Most of the wintry mess this morning is occurring across the interior Northeast and Southern New England, with some freezing rain and sleet lingering across the interior Mid-Atlantic. An inch or two of snow and a glaze of ice will be possible through midday from south-central Pennsylvania into central New York, with northern New England and Maine seeing up to 4 inches of snow and sleet through this evening.
Travel along north-south interstates 81, 87 and 91 and parts of east-west Interstate 76 (Pennsylvania Turnpike), 80, 90 (New York State Thruway) could still be slick through this evening. Interstate 95 from Washington to Boston will see improving travel conditions this morning as the freezing rain, snow and sleet ends and crews get a chance to clear the roads.
All Winter Storm Warnings have been discontinued across the Mid-Atlantic, with Winter Weather Advisories extends from the Mason-Dixon line northward into northwestern Maine.
Perhaps unluckily, this won`t be the Eastern U.S.` last brush with Old Man Winter this week. The same front will link up with a potent disturbance careening out of the Midwest and Great Lakes, unleashing another wave of wintry weather from the Mid-South into the Mid-Atlantic and New England Tuesday.
This time in places like Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, it will fall as snow with a bit of sleet at the very beginning. In fact, several inches of fluffy snow cannot be ruled out along the Interstate 95 corridor from the Nation`s Capital to Boston.
