Arctic blast…lake effect snows
Snow bands have already formed today just downstream of Lakes Erie and Ontario as Arctic air charges across the still relatively warm waters of the eastern Great Lakes. Significant lake-effect snow accumulations are likely during the next couple of days in some of the usual places just downstream of Lake Erie (e.g., Cleveland, Erie, Buffalo) and Lake Ontario (e.g., Syracuse, Watertown). In fact, snow shower and snow squall activity is likely to make it all the way into the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor on Tuesday and small accumulations are possible. The Arctic air will ride into the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor later today and tonight on increasingly strong W-NW winds. The core of the Arctic outbreak will be in place across the Mid-Atlantic region on Tuesday and Tuesday night and many places will experience their lowest temperatures so far this season late tomorrow night into early Wednesday morning. In addition, the winds will remain persistently strong right into the mid-week resulting in even lower wind chill values compared to the actual air temperatures.
