Snow, Sleet on the Horizon, Slippery Conditions Possible Tuesday Morning

by on December 08, 2014 3:15 PM

Update Monday 4 p.m.: The National Weather Service has posted a Winter Weather Advisory. The Advisory will be in effect from 7 p.m. Monday until 1 p.m. Tuesday.



We're bracing for another round of snow, sleet and rain over the next few days -- with a mix of wintry precipitation beginning late Monday night.

A storm forming off the Carolinas will bring some heavy weather across the Mid-Atlantic region. Along the coast that means heavy rain but Northeastern Pennsylvania, New York and New England could see several inches of snow.

Fortunately, we're on the western fringe of the storm's projected path. According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Tom Kines, "There might be a half inch or maybe an inch [of snow] on the ground Tuesday morning."

As a result, you'll want to watch out for slick spots while driving to work.

Temperatures will be in the lower to middle 30s on Tuesday. And that will limit snow accumulation. But there's still a chance for additional snow. "It continues off and on Tuesday night into Wednesday as well," says Kines. "I think as we get into that Tuesday night and Wednesday time frame, snow will be the favored precipitation type. ...When it's all said and done I think we're looking at anywhere from one to maybe three inches."

There may still be snow showers through Wednesday night and possibly even Thursday. But there could be some better weather on the way. "It looks like next week, we get into a milder weather pattern, and less stormy pattern as well," says Kines.
