Snow Slows New England Travel


The storm that soaked the Southeast and mid-Atlantic over the weekend shifted into New England on Sunday night. Wind-whipped snow began falling across the region as the system pressed northward into the colder air in place.

While rain tapered off in the mid-Atlantic overnight, several inches of snow blanketed a swath from upstate New York to Massachusetts.

Accumulating snow will continue through the morning from Massachusetts to eastern Maine, leading to a messy Monday morning commute. Meanwhile, slick road conditions will still be likely farther south in New England as a bit of snow mixes with lingering rain through midday.

The heaviest snow will target the coasts of Maine and New Hampshire, where an additional half of a foot could pile up in spots. Officials in these areas may be forced to close any schools that are already not off for the holiday.

The snow will gradually taper off as the storm finally pulls away later today. However, New England will not get a break from the wintry weather.

A new disturbance will advance eastward into the Northeast tonight. This will bring another bout of snow showers to a large portion of the Northeast by Tuesday.

Colder air will accompany the system across the Northeast on Tuesday. As a result, a mix of snow and rain can be expected from New York City to Boston.

While this system will not produce significant accumulations, travel will be slowed as roads become slippery.

High pressure edging eastward into the Great Lakes will pump more chilly air into the Northeast through the middle of the week.
