A fast-moving "clipper" system produced a general area of 3 to 8 inches of snow across parts of southern Minnesota to Wisconsin to northern Illinois and Michigan. In north central Michigan the heaviest snow was measured with locally 12 inches in Dighton, Michigan. Today the clipper will go coastal as a new storm develops in the Chesapeake Bay area and then it will quickly intensify and spin off the New England Coast Tonight into Monday morning. Classic but typical for winter in the Northeast. As this moderate coastal storm tracks northeast along the coast the major East Coast cities from Washington to Boston may see a brief period of snow before changing to rain. Parts of southern New England may see a mixture of rain and snow before changing back to snow some light accumulations are possible. Snow and gusty winds will develop across eastern new York and stretch across to northern and central New England. Winter storm warnings are posted across the region. Snowfall totals will range from 6 to 10 inches from the Hudson and Champlain Valleys, to as much as 10 to 15 inches in Lebanon, N.H., Rumford and Bangor, Maine. A few locations in western to central northern Maine could see 15 inches or more before the storm rages into the Maritimes. Windy conditions will accompany the developing coastal low with sustained winds of 20-30 mph common with gusts 35 to locally 50 mph. Follow this impressive storm with Live Coverage at the top and bottom of each hour from Maine with TWC's Tetiana Anderson tonight. See the snow and wind impacts from this developing snowstorm. Very cold temperatures will follow the clipper and coastal storm in the Central to Gulf Coastal States. Bundle up for the winter chill Today into Monday as temperatures range 10-20 degrees below average for both lows and highs. Meanwhile, in the West rounds of rain and snow will return as a deepening trough of low pressure allows Pacific disturbances and storms to enter the picture. The central focus for the rain will be from central to northern California to coastal sections of the Northwest. Local rain totals today into Monday will reach 1 to 4 inches. Snow will fall heavy 1 to 3 feet in the mountains of the Sierra to Shasta to southern and central Cascades. This is great news for the severe to extreme drought conditions in northern and central California and even the dry Northwest lately. Just use caution driving in the rain and snow. Slow your speed and take it easy into next week.
