I-95 Corridor Target of Sunday-Monday Storm

Another storm is poised to bring disruptive snow Sunday night into Monday to the Interstate 95 corridor from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia, with lesser amounts expected in New York City.

A low pressure system will track along the cold front that brought milder air into the mid-Atlantic on Saturday and strengthen, Senior Meteorologist Dave Samuhel said.

It will throw snow Sunday night into the mountains north and west of Washington, D.C., and just in time for the morning rush hour in the nation's capital and Philadelphia. The storm may cause hazardous road conditions in the mountains and I-95 Corridor and force flight delays and cancellations.

The storm will move quickly, wrapping up by Monday night, but not before leaving 1 to 3 inches of snow in Washington, 2 to 4 inches in Philadelphia and up to 1 foot of snow northwest of the cities, Samuhel said.

Snow could start before noon Monday in New York City, but after the morning commute, with possibly 1 to 3 inches accumulating.

Any snow would add already above-normal snowfalls in New York, Philadelphia and Washington. As of Saturday, Philadelphia is well above normal with 37.1 inches; the average snowfall for December and January is 9.6 inches.

New York City has 28.3 inches of snow, compared to an average 11.8 inches, and Baltimore was at 13.7 inches with an average of 8 inches.
