The temperatures are gearing up to take a downward slide across the Northeast as a winter storm system slides into the area just ahead of Valentine's Day.

Read on for more information about the return of Ole Man Winter to this corner of the nation.

New Blast of Winter Waiting in the Wings

The incoming weather maker is expected to bring wet and heavy snow to parts of the central Appalachians and up into portions of New England beginning Monday night and lasting through Tuesday.

The arrival of the wintry precipitation may come as quite a shock to the region after the unseasonably warm temperatures of the last several days.

While residents may be caught off guard by the sudden blast of winter, meteorologists have been predicting this change in the general weather pattern for a few weeks.

The first surge of the storm will come when warmer than average temperatures are still in place over the Ohio Valley, the mid-Atlantic, and the southern tier of New England. This will keep any moisture falling as rain until it switches over to snow or sleet.

For instance, temperatures are predicted to remain in the 40s for highs across the northern edge of New England while readings in the 60s will be the norm for the mid-Atlantic.

The mercury will begin to drop late Sunday and into Monday, setting the stage for the possibility of wintry precipitation.
