Storms will stretch from the Upper Midwest to nearly the Gulf Coast Monday morning

Being nearly 48 hours out, it's much too early to pinpoint where exactly this band will set up, who sees the heavy rates and the areas that will withstand the highest accumulations. Time frame for this to occur will be Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday morning. The first system is expected to develop by Tuesday night and Wednesday and although not as a big a wind maker as this past storm, it is likely to produce another round of heavy snow in the northeast. It is possible Northern Worcester County and the Berkshire hills could see up to 24 inches of snow.

"It's an outside chance", Horst said of the chance for 10 inches.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm watch for Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Schuylkill and York counties beginning late Tuesday through Wednesday evening.

Snow will cover New Hampshire and western Maine. Heavy wet snow will increase the risk for downed tree limbs and branches, resulting in possible power outages and additional flooding.

It will be sunny with temperatures in the mid-40s Tuesday before another nor'easter blows in Wednesday, forecasters said. Also if the storm ends up stalling nearby before pulling away, there could be some higher amounts. No travel is advised in many areas.

Snow totals are still being worked out, but New Yorkers can expect a messy commute throughout the day. "It doesn't mean we're going to get six inches".

Lessor said the southeastern portion of CT could see accumulations of 3 to 7 inches as rain mixes in, but much of central CT could expect 6 to 12 inches and the western most portion of the state could see upwards of 14 inches.

But Davison's desperation 3-point try with the clock running out fell well short. "They hadn't really been switching anything". In the first half, the Badgers gave the Spartans just about all they could handle, trailing by just four, 32-28 at the break.

"For most people in the Northeast, especially in New England and the coastal mid-Atlantic, this will be a more typical winter storm or nor'easter", according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

Weather models suggest now that the heaviest precipitation in our region across DE, far southeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey, forecasters said.

Heralded by wind gusts over 70 miles per hour on Friday, the air currents that guide ocean-bound weather systems across the continent are shifting into an alignment that favors coastal storms at the end of a winter that so far has brought little more than 3 inches of snow to the D.C. region.

Coastal Flooding: Tides are not running almost as high as the astronomical cycle we just went through.

Timing: Snow developing Wednesday afternoon for most. But because the area has already been hurt, it will be more vulnerable. "It will be breezy and gusty at times - 30 to 35", she said.

The quick pace of the storm should limit any issues to minor problems for one or two high tides, especially in areas that suffered beach erosion the past few days.
