12:00 PM | ****Low pressure to significantly intensify next 24 hours…snow bands on Tuesday can rotate all the way down into SE PA/southern NJ…winds to become a major factor**** — Arcfield Weather2 min read
Small accumulations of a coating to an inch or two are possible from later tomorrow into tomorrow night all the way into the city of Philadelphia and the best chance for accumulations in the metro region will be across the northern suburbs (e.g., Bucks County). Farther to the north, this does not look like a snowstorm for New York City given the expected positioning of the surface and upper-level lows – perhaps resulting in similar accumulations up there as anticipated in the Philly metro region (i.e., a coating to an inch or two). Snow accumulations will rise dramatically, however, not too far to the north and west of the Big Apple with, for example, a foot possible across some of the higher elevations of NE PA and NW NJ. Even higher amounts of 1-2 feet can fall in the “bullseye” region of Lower Hudson Valley of NY State to central/western MA and CT and from there northward into Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine (4-8 inches possible in Boston).
While accumulating snow will draw a lot of attention with this storm system, perhaps the most important factor will end up being the increasingly strong winds; especially, in the Mid-Atlantic region where snowfall will be somewhat limited. Wind gusts of 50 mph are certainly on the table from Tuesday into late Wednesday throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and don’t be surprised if they reach as high as 70 mph across coastal New England during the height of the storm. Unfortunately, power outages are on the table throughout the northeastern quadrant of the nation from later tonight into Wednesday night.
