Potential Major Winter Storm for East Coast Cities This Weekend

7 months ago

A new weather pattern for much of the United States comes with a new year. After a warm December across the country, January will usher in colder temperatures and more weather, especially across the eastern U.S. A potential winter storm could affect areas from the mid-Atlantic and Northeast into New England this weekend from Saturday to Monday.

While it's too early to pinpoint specific snowfall totals, locations including Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York City should pay close attention to the forecast throughout the week.

The mid-Atlantic and Northeast have seen a quiet period for winter storms over the past couple of years. However, this weekend has the potential to break that lull. A storm system is expected to come together and track near or just off the East Coast.

The exact track will determine what areas see mostly snow versus a mix of snow, rain and sleet. Regardless, travel could become difficult across major metro areas like Interstate 95 from Washington DC up to Boston.
