Weekend Snowstorm Targets the Northeast

17 Feb 2018, 11:45 am

The northeast is bracing for the next round of winter weather. Many areas will see enough snow to cause travel and other impacts, particularly up and down the I-95 corridor this weekend.


An area of low pressure will push off the mid-Atlantic coastline Saturday, moving to the east-northeast. The low will pass just south of the southern New England coast, but close enough for accumulating snow for many areas from Washington DC to Boston.

While not a blockbuster of a storm, here’s what the northeast can expect.


Timing: Most of the snow will fall from late Saturday through early Sunday for the northeast.

Impacts: Travel may become difficult and potentially dangerous as snow falls through Saturday and Sunday. Visibility may be temporarily reduced in bands of heavier snowfall.

Snow totals: Totals will be heaviest along from northern New Jersey, through Long Island & the greater New York City area, through southern New England to near Boston where 6-10″ of snow will accumulate. Lighter totals less than 3-6″ will fall through most of the interior northeast from West Virginia to Maine.
