Happy Holidays from your friends at The Weather Channel! A winter storm is approaching the region by early next week and we want to make sure you are prepared for any weather event.
At this point, it appears that the biggest threat for any wintry precipitation will be to the north and west of the bigger cities of the Northeast Corridor.
Thursday: A weak storm moves across northern New England with light snow expected from Upstate New York through western Massachusetts and most of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Some snow showers across ne Ohio, the southern tier of New York and northern Pennsylvania with little or no accumulation. Rain or snow is possible for central and eastern Massachusetts with light rain showers possible Connecticut to southeastern Massachusetts. Snowfall amounts across the Adirondacks and northern New England will generally be in the 1-3 inch range. Temperatures will range from the 30s across western Pennsylvania, much of Upstate New York, and across northern New England. Highs will reach the 40s along the coast from Boston to New Jersey with 50s expected to the south into the Mid Atlantic states.
Friday: A quiet, dry day with temperatures in the 30s across Upstate New York and northern New England and in the 40s from southern New England through New York City and into the Mid Atlantic region.
Saturday: A weak disturbance will move across the region with some light snow showers or mixed rain and snow showers from western New York and northern Pennsylvania to northern New England…Some light snow accumulation (1-3″) is expected in the mountains, from eastern New York into New England. Rain showers are possible from Boston to New York City southward into the Mid Atlantic states. Temperatures will be mainly in the 30s and 40s (coldest across the far north and mountain areas, closer to 50 around Washington, DC and Virginia).
Sunday (Christmas Day): Much of the region will be dry with the exception of, perhaps, a few rain showers across Virginia or the Mid Atlantic, and western Pennsylvania late in the day where rain may develop. Temperatures will range from the 20s and 30s across northern NY and northern New England to the 40s and 50s from southern New England to the Mid Atlantic states.
**Icy precipitation may approach parts of western Pennsylvania and western New York by Sunday Night, with snow possible late over the Adirondacks.
Monday: Rain or mixed, icy precipitation possible parts of northern New York and interior northern New England with rain possible over the lower elevations and more populated areas of southern New England and the Mid Atlantic states.
