More Snow Targets Northeast Today
UPDATED 10 AM EST, February 18, 2014
UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Seth Carrier
The relentless winter weather continues early this week as another storm cruises into the Northeast this morning. Several inches of snowfall will fall across the central Appalachians and New England after hitting the Mid-Atlantic earlier.
Low pressure moving into the Northeast this morning began its trek across the northern tier of the U.S. on Monday as 4 to 6 inches of snow blanketed eastern Iowa as well as places like Chicago and Milwaukee, Wis. The same storm slid into the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic overnight, generally depositing a light 1 to 2 inch snowfall early this morning across the suburbs of Baltimore and Philadelphia.
However, as the storm slides off the East Coast this morning it will transition to a stronger and more moisture-rich system. This will lead to moderate snowfall for much of southern and eastern New England from late this morning through the afternoon.
Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories stretch across western and central Pennsylvania , New York City, Hartford, Conn., Boston, Manchester, N.H., and Portland, Maine.
The snow is edging north along Interstate 95 into Boston and the Northeast. Boston will see 3 to 5 inches. However, the heaviest snowfall from today`s event will be found from northeastern Massachusetts to the central coast of Maine, where a moderate snowfall of 5 to 8 inches is expected. These snow totals may even slow the evening commute for the major New England cities.
Today`s storm will finally exit into the Canadian Maritimes this evening, but another weak disturbance following close on its heels will threaten interior New England with another round of snow showers on Wednesday.
