WHAT WE KNOW: Widespread heavy snow is likely Monday night into Tuesday morning for the Mid-Atlantic into New England. Areas of heaviest snow can expect upwards of a foot or more beginning late Monday night into Tuesday. This will cause substantial traffic problems, many school and business closings and potential power trouble, too.
Snow totals right now bring over a foot of snow to a large portion of Central PA. 14 -22″ looks likely with higher local totals possible. Areas to the north and west can expect to see a bit less, but still heavy accumulations. Gusty winds will likely create blowing snow and near-blizzard conditions at times. Snow will fall at 1-2″ per hour in the early morning hours of Tuesday.
With a couple days left, many things can and likely will change as the systems move closer to the area. Right now four of the main models we look at show very different snow totals for Central PA. Each time the models are run, you can expect to see a different result with systems as strong as these. Here are the totals of what we’re looking at to make our official forecast of what we believe you will see out your door.
