A major winter storm will unfold across the Northeast early this week, eventually becoming an all-out blizzard over parts of New England and the New York City area.
Those in the Northeast should prepare for the storm now rather than wait until the snow starts to fall, especially those across eastern New England.
“While the storm from Saturday may have been a mere nuisance to travelers and a delight to skiers, the storm Monday night into Tuesday could be far more disruptive in terms of travel and daily activities,” said AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.
The greatest impacts are expected along the Interstate-95 corridor from Philadelphia northward where over a foot of snow is forecast to fall. The blizzard also threatens to bring the heavily populated zone from New York City to Boston to Portland, Maine, to a standstill.
Arrival Of The Snow
Before intensifying into a major winter storm, this system will spread snow across the lower Midwest and into the mid-Atlantic through Sunday evening.
Snow amounts in this area are not expected to be nearly as high when compared to what will fall over New England early this week, but Sunday’s snow can still cause some travel delays from Indianapolis through Pittsburgh.
The snow will then spread north and east throughout the first half of the week as the storm rapidly intensifies just off the coast and slowly tracks to the north.
Travel disruptions due to the snow should be anticipated as early as the Monday morning commute around Philadelphia and New York City.
