Winter storm along the Eastern Seaboard

8:30 P.M. ET 2/28/2005


Tom Moore, Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



Snow moved rapidly into Southern New England and Upstate New York on Monday evening. Parts of eastern New York, northeast Pennsylvania and interior sections of New England can expect six to ten inches of snow. Snow on Cape Cod and extreme southweast Massachusetts will change to rain overnight. Wind gusts of 50 to 60 mph at times are possible. Snow will end or change to freezing drizzle in the Baltimore-Washington area, overnight, after a relatively light accumulation. Snow will wind down before morning around Philadelphia and New York City after four to eight to inch accumulation. Parts of the Boston area may see 7 to 12 inches of snow by Tuesday morning. Heavier amounts of snow will fall in Maine late Monday night and Tuesday. Overall, snowfall from this storm, especially in the major metro areas from Washington to New York, will fall a little short of initial expectations due to an intrusion of dry air up through the Middle Atlantic region, marginal temperatures and a more easterly track of the main storm system.


Meanwhile, another storm system will dump snow over parts of the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley areas. It will be cold and windy, as well, by early Tuesday. Look for locally heavy snow over the next couple of days over parts of Michigan, east of lake Michigan, northern Indiana, northeast Ohio, northwest Pennsylvania and parts of Upstate New York. Lighter accumulations are likely across the Ohio Valley.
