Meteorologist Amy Freeze says the first system appears to be slowing down, so the snow might not arrive until Tuesday during the day and may continue into early Wednesday morning.
That storm is on track to produce snow, ice, and a wintry mix from parts of Kansas to southern New England. 1 to 3 inches of snow is expected across the Tri-State area, with mixing south and east.
The snow looks to hit the Appalachians, especially in parts of Pennsylvania and New York. 3 to 6 inches of snow could be possible across parts of western Maryland, Pennsylvania and the Southern Tier of New York.
However, the heaviest snow appears to stay well west of the New York City area.
For us, this one does not look like a major storm, but there could be some accumulations and plowable snow.
Here’s a breakdown of the snowfall probabilities:
– Dusting to 1 inch – 10%
– 1 to 3 inches – 40%
– 3 to 6 inches – 30%
– 6 or more inches – 20%
There is another chance for snow on Thursday. Again, this one does not look all that major as it will likely change over to rain.
