One Storm Tracking Through, Another Stronger One Tuesday and Wednesday

 

A fairly strong weather system will continue tracking through the eastern US this morning with areas of rain and snow.  A majority of the precipitation associated with the storm will fall as showers and thunderstorms today over the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic with amounts locally over an inch.  Into the colder air over the Northeast, a swath of snowfall will lead to several inches of accumulations, with the highest amounts over 4″ expected over southern New York, northern New Jersey, and Connecticut.  This storm should exit off the coast overnight before the next one strengthens over the central US Tuesday and tracks east Wednesday.  This second storm will be a bigger deal with stronger thunderstorms in the warm sector and much more impressive snowfall totals expected over the highest use states of the Northeast.  Temperatures today will remain quite chilly over the Midwest where highs will struggle to get out of the single digits and teens.  It will also be colder than normal over the Plains where highs will only be in the 30s, including over much of northern Texas.

 

 

Monday morning Doppler radar shows widespread showers over the Mid-Atlantic extending into the Southeast. Over the northern reaches of the storm much colder air remains and is leading to a swath of snow over the Northeast.  The rain transitions to snow over Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
