Second Round of Snow May Slick Roads From DC to NYC by Early Week

An Alberta Clipper storm moving in from the Midwest may bring snow to areas in the mid-Atlantic missed by a coastal storm on Saturday.

The clipper storm, originating from western Canada, will spread a swath of accumulating snow and slippery travel from Chicago to Pittsburgh on Sunday before reaching the mid-Atlantic early in the week.

Depending on how quickly this storm strengthens upon reaching the mid-Atlantic coast will determine how much snow and travel problems develop from Interstate 81 to Interstate 95 and perhaps right to the beaches spanning Sunday night into Monday night.

The clipper storm early next week may occur as the atmosphere turns colder. Such a setup could lead to more substantial wintry driving conditions along the coast. The storm is likely to bring a general 1-3 inches of snow with locally higher amounts possible.

Commuters heading to work and school on Monday in the zone from Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia to New York City should be prepared for slow travel and potential disruptions. The snow could expand northward into Boston and southern New England.

Roads around Washington, D.C., especially in the northern suburbs could become slippery on Monday. Roads from Baltimore to New York City could be slippery and snow-covered for a time.

As the clipper storm gains strength on Monday, winds will pick up from the north and northeast, which will not only help to pull down colder air, but can cause also some blowing snow.

A second and weaker clipper storm could track farther south prior to midweek and could bring some snow showers to parts of the southern Appalachians.
