Heavy Snow Ahead in the Northeast

11 Dec 2017, 9:18 am

A round of heavy snow is on the way for the Northeast, especially for New England later tonight through early Wednesday. Winter Storm Watches have been issued from Maine into Pennsylvania. Additional snowfall is likely for the lake effect snow belts near Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.

A slow moving low pressure center will move out of the Upper Midwest into the Ohio Valley today. Ahead of the system along a warm front, the first burst of snow will develop. A second wave of snow will wrap around the backside of the low Tuesday into Wednesday morning. This is where the heaviest snow will fall, along with the strongest wind. Gusts to 40 mph are possible as the low strengthens. By Wednesday afternoon, the low will weaken and push into Canada.
