More snow for the Northeastern US

Additional snow bound for New England

3:17 P.M. ET 12/26/2004


B. Bernard, Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



An offshore storm that dumped up to 11 inches of snow on Tidewater Virginia and 9.5 inches on northeastern North Carolina today is targeting New England now. The snow in Virginia and North Carolina will wind down over the next couple of hours, while at the same time increasing over southeastern New England. (Snow will continue to pile up into this evening, however, on the DelMarVa Peninsula where another 2 to 4 inches are possible.) Up to 4 inches of snow have already coated parts of eastern Massachusetts today, thanks to a cold, easterly wind blowing off the Atlantic. Snow from the offshore storm will enhance the snow already falling, and an additional 3 to 6 inches of wind-driven fluff are likely tonight in southeastern New England, but a narrow band of 6 to 10 inches is not out of the question. If Cape Cod and the islands--where the precipitation may start as rain--can cool down enough overnight, 4 to 8 inches of slushy, wind-whipped snow could pile up there. New York City may collect an inch or two, while eastern Long Island might see substantially more, perhaps up to half a foot.


In the West, winter storm warnings remain posted for the mountains of northern California. By late tomorrow, as much as one to two feet of new snow will have fallen above the 4000-foot level.
