Snow on tap for Northeast

Snow from Upper Midwest spreading into Northeast

1:41 P.M. ET 2/20/2005


B. Bernard, Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



A snowstorm that already has dropped up to a half-foot of snow (locally 8 or 9 inches in Minnesota) on parts of the Upper Midwest is spreading its wares into Pennsylvania now. In general, a total of 3 to 6 inches (locally more) of fresh snow were or are expected from Minnesota and Wisconsin, across lower Michigan into much of New York state, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and northern Maryland by early tomorrow. Snow is forecast to continue spreading across New England during the day tomorrow as the low pressure system from the Midwest re-forms south of Long Island. See National Forecast for additional details.


In the West, heavy snow warnings are posted for the Wasatch Mountains north of I-80. Winter storm warnings are in effect for the mountains of southwestern Colorado and the higher elevations of southeastern Utah. Also in the West, heavy rain and mountain snow are forecast to return to Southern Califonrnia tonight (see National Forecast for more more information).


But wintry weather isn't the only concern today. Isolated severe thunderstorms may rumble eastward from southeastern Missouri and Arkansas across the mid-Mississippi Valley late this afternoon and tonight. The primary threats from any such storms would be strong, damaging winds and large hail, but a stray tornado can't be ruled out.
