'Plowable' snow possible Monday into Tuesday


The winter storm warning is now for the entirety of the day Monday from midnight to midnight - the last several hours are mostly just margin as the accumulating snow will mostly be over by sunset and perhaps as early as midday.

Another nor'easter is looking likely for Monday into Tuesday.

The high temperature will be about 42, and the low will be 31. Locally heavier amounts are possible, in higher elevations and where locally more intense bands set up. Still, both models agree there will be more snow on the way for the Northeast. After that, the likelihood goes up to 90 percent, and snow and sleet may be coming down as well.

There's a slight chance of snow before 2 p.m. Monday, then rain likely between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., then rain and snow likely after 5 p.m. - just in time for the evening commute, according to the weather service.

Meteorologist Mark Dixon is carefully watching a third coastal storm, Winter Storm Ferris, which is due to make its appearance late Monday night and into Tuesday morning.

There may well be a narrow swath of 6-10 inches that forms within the broader 3-6, though it's hard to place such a band in advance.

The snow is expected to be a heavier, wetter snow. "It is possible that we see 6-12" (or more) of snow with this storm. By the end of the week as this low moves out, our temperatures will finally moderate.

Widespread showers and possible thunderstorms will develop Sunday evening.
