Adjust Comment Print

The snow will taper off to flurries Wednesday, Feb. 13.

Tuesday morning is expected to see mixed precipitation, and Tuesday afternoon, strong westerly winds will pick up and continue overnight.

A wintery mix of snow and sleet is forecast to fall overnight Monday and much of Tuesday in the tri-state area, making for a unsafe day of commuting.

About 3 to 6 inches of snow will accumulate for a large portion of the region further north, but south of Boston and toward the Cape and Islands should only get 1 to 3 inches.

Like the East Coast cities, Chicago is also right on the edge of the rain and snow, Hurley said. "Mifflin and Juniata counties will likely see 5-7" of snow when all is said and done with snowfall, before a transition to sleet, freezing rain and plain rain on Tuesday.

- Parts of central and southern Minnesota and western Wisconsin are under a Winter Weather Advisory through Sunday evening. Because of this a ***WINTER STORM WARNING GOES INTO EFFECT LATE TONIGHT*** and lasts through late Tuesday night. An extended period of sleet could keep the overall snow totals down, however.

Snow is likely Tuesday afternoon.

Residents cleared out grocery store shelves and left work early Friday afternoon as the storm arrived.

Brace yourself for yet another round of messy winter weather.
