Winter storm headed for eastern US by midweek

Winter Storm On The Way

Big weather system headed for portions of the US bringing with it T-Storms, Heavy Rains, Wintery Mix, and Heavy Snow!

 

Winter Weather

Snow will develop on Tuesday across Kansas before spreading northeastward Tuesday night into Wednesday. Kansas City, MO to Omaha, Des Moines, Minneapolis, Duluth will likely receive several inches of snow.

Anyone hitting the road during this system should travel with extreme caution and give extra time into their travel plans. Along with low visibility in areas of snow, roads can quickly become slick and snow-covered, leading to treacherous conditions and traffic slowdowns.

Residents across the mid-Atlantic, New York and southern New England will notice sleet and freezing rain mixing in with the snow.

This wintry mix will make the existing snow cover heavier and harder to clear, along with perpetuating slippery conditions on cleared roads and sidewalks.

It should also be noted that there could be a significant accumulation of ice across parts of western Virginia, West Virginia, and south-central Pennsylvania. An ice storm is also possible across interior portions of southern New England Wednesday night into Thursday.

 

Heavy Rains

There will be a two punch to the heavy rains across much of the same area.

Round one – set to bring several inches with upwards of 3-4+ inches in some areas.

Round two – these numbers in total value go up to 7-8+ inches in a large area if things stay where they are at.

Regardless what part of this weather system you will be on, please be careful while traveling. Expect delays at airports where wintery weather will be expected and roads will be dangerous where wintery weather is expected.
