Forecasters Expect Another Strong Northeast Storm After Snowy Weekend


AccuWeather adds that some forecast maps indicate only rain and no snow in the Northeast, but that another significant storm could arrive mid-week next week.

According to AccuWeather and the National Weather Service, the storm will move northeast from the Gulf Coast to the mid-Atlantic between 12 and 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6.

The NWS also stated that flurries might occur Wednesday evening, Jan. 3, covering central Virginia and Southern Maryland with an inch of snow by Thursday, Jan. 4.

AccuWeather weather maps show the storm advancing into New Jersey as snow, ice, and rain, and almost totally into Pennsylvania. Travel conditions are predicted to deteriorate dramatically during the day, particularly in New England and much of upstate New York, according to weather maps.

South Jersey, Southern Maryland, and Virginia, on the other hand, may just get rain, which will end Saturday night, according to the National Weather Service.

When all is said and done on Sunday evening, Jan. 7, Central Pennsylvania could see up to a foot of snow. Snow totals can be shown on the weather map above.

A more severe storm forecast to form over the central states on Monday, Jan. 8 (see above) will be significantly worse when it advances toward the Northeast mid-week, bringing heavy thunderstorms and powerful winds.
