Winter Snow Storm 2014 Maps: Storm Expected to Blast New England, Leave 10 Inches of Snow in NYC
New York City and parts of the mid-Atlantic region should gear up for another winter storm that could bring up to 10 inches of snow for some areas.
On Monday, the National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning in effect for the New York City area starting Tuesday at noon until 6 a.m. Wednesday morning, reports AMNewYork.
According to NBC New York, the storm could dump up to 10 inches of snow in New York City and even more on parts of Long Island.
Meteorologists predict that snowfall will begin late Tuesday morning, with the heaviest snow falling between Tuesday afternoon and evening. Once it tapers off Wednesday morning, between 6 to 10 inches of snow will be left on the ground in NYC, with possibly over a foot of snow on parts of Long Island.
In addition, the storm will bring an arctic blast of bitterly cold winds with gusts of up to 35 mph, while temperatures will drop to 12 to 22 degrees during the storm Tuesday night.
In other parts of the mid-Atlantic like Washington, D.C., Virginia, Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey, the storm could unfold to be the biggest snowfall of the season thus far, bringing 3 to 6 inches of snow in areas across the mid-Atlantic to southeastern New England.
"For Washington, D.C., this could be the biggest storm since Jan. 26, 2011, when about 5 inches of snow fell," said Accuweather Winter Weather Expert Brian Wimer.
"Even though the storm is coming during the day Tuesday, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Roanoke and Richmond, Va., Dover, Del., Philadelphia, New York City, and Atlantic City, N.J., will have enough snow to shovel and plow," Wimer added.
Meteorologist Bernie Rayno also said "The heavy snow may expand northward along the coast, as the storm approaches the Atlantic Ocean, taps into more moisture and that moisture is released into the cold air."
