Sr. Meteorologist, Tom Moore, The Weather Channel




Look for a general snowfall of 3 to 6 inches across parts of the Northeast from western New York to Southern New England. The heaviest accumulations will fall mainly south of Interstate 90 down to northern Pennsylvania. The morning rush hour could be tricky around New York City where 2 to 4 inches may fall. Little or no snow is expected around Philadelphia. It will be a different story across parts of Southern New England, however. Parts of Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts, including Cape Cod may see six to ten inches with locally higher amounts. Winds may gust over 35 mph on Cape Cod by Wednesday evening with more drifting snow. Temperatures will take another plunge by Wednesday night and Thursday.



Tuesday was mild across much of the Midwest on Tuesday but changes are in store for Wednesday. The Twin Cities hit the middle 40s on Tuesday but highs on Wednesday may hold in the lower 20s. Generally, highs on Wednesday will range from the single digits in northern North Dakota to around 40 degrees in the Ohio Valley. Look for lake-effect snow across the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and northern Wisconsin. Snow showers are likely near Lake Michigan around Chicago, as well.



A Pacific storm will plow into coastal California resulting in a rainy Wednesday. Showers will be common throughout western Washington, western Oregon, southern Nevada, southern Utah and Arizona. Snow levels will hold around 6000 feet along the west slopes of the Sierras, 5000 feet in the Cascades. Look for a general snowfall of four to eight inches. Snow will also fall in the San Gabriel mountains north of Los Angeles. High temperatures in the 30s and 40s will be widespread over the Interior West with 50s along much of the Pacific Coast. Another round of rain will slide into the West Coast on Friday.



The Florida Peninsula has been chilly over the past few days but it will be milder on Wednesday. In fact, much of the South will experience a mild Thursday. precipitation will be confined to a few scattered showers in eastern sections of Virginia and North carolina. High temperatures on Wednesday will range from the 50s over Tennessee and northern North Carolina to the low 80s in southern Texas. Much of the Gulf Coast region and Florida Peninsula will be in the 70s.
