   Weird Winter: No Winter Storm Warnings Have Been Issued in Chicago or New York City
   

Winter Safety and Preparedness

Snow to Blanket the Interior Northeast, But Will Leave Boston and New York City All Wet Again

By Chris Dolce

   A fast-moving system will bring snow to parts of the Northeast Tuesday, but rain to many others as mild temperatures return ahead of the system.

   This system blanketed parts of the upper Midwest with mostly modest snow totals on Presidents' Day.

   However, some heavier snowbands did set up, leading to a few higher totals. New Ulm, Minnesota, picked up 10.4 inches, while some suburbs around Madison, Wisconsin, picked up 6 inches of snow.

   Currently, snow is spreading into the interior Northeast, while still lingering in the northern Great Lakes.

   Winter weather advisories continue in effect from northeast Wisconsin and northern Michigan to parts of western, central and Upstate New York, New Hampshire and Maine.

   Arctic air sent temperatures plunging below zero late last week in the nation's midsection and parts of northern New England, but the air currently in place is nowhere near that cold. Most areas in the East and South will have above-average temperatures Tuesday, as shown by the orange contours in the temperature forecast below.

   That means snow from this new system is unlikely to be widespread. But it will impact travel in parts of the Great Lakes and interior Northeast. It will also bring more unwanted rain to the South.

Forecast

   Tuesday-Tuesday Night

   Rain is expected from the waterlogged South to the mid-Atlantic and parts of the Northeast.

   The greatest chance for snowfall will be from central and upstate New York to northern New England. Precipitation might begin as snow from western and central New York to northern Pennsylvania and southern New England, but warmer air will change the snow over to rain by Tuesday afternoon.

   Colder temperatures will also return to the central and eastern U.S. after this system's cold front passes through Tuesday into Wednesday.

   Again, this is a modest snow event, with most areas from the upper Midwest to northern New England expected to receive less than 6 inches of snow.

   A few areas of upstate New York and northern New England, particularly at higher elevations, may pick up a bit more than 6 inches through Tuesday night.
