Another clipper to deliver more snow to Mid-Atlantic

Posted: Updated:

ACCUWEATHER - A storm responsible for 1 to 3 inches of snow from Chicago to Fort Wayne, Ind., is aiming for the Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia areas Monday night.

Columbus, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Pa., and Morgantown, W.Va., which have received above-normal snowfall thus far this winter, will pick up more snow from the storm.

The latest in a series of cold storms from western Canada, known as Alberta Clippers, will spread a swath of accumulating snow from Ohio during the middle of the day Monday to the central Appalachians Monday afternoon to part of the I-95 mid-Atlantic Monday evening into Monday night.

Enough snow will fall to coat highways in much of the Midwest and in the central Appalachian Mountains. As the day progresses into night and road surface temperatures cool slightly, wet sidewalks, streets and highways may become slippery east of the Appalachians.

As a tongue of moisture from the South feeds into the storm, an area of moderate snow, on the order of 3 to 6 inches is likely from parts of Ohio to the West Virginia, western Maryland and south-central Pennsylvania mountains. There is a chance of moderate snow across northern Maryland, east of the mountains.

Even portions of southern New Jersey and the northern part of the Delmarva Peninsula, which have been picking up snow of late, should do well with snow from this storm, on the order of 1 to 3 inches with locally higher amounts possible.

A zone of light, intermittent snow will fall from the southern tier of New York and the northern tier of Pennsylvania to New York City, brushing the South Coast of New England. A few places within this zone can pick up a coating to an inch or so Monday night. Bands of heavy lake-effect snow will continue over parts of upstate New York.

Much of the snow that falls on Baltimore Monday night will slowly melt Tuesday during the Ravens' Victory Parade.

Enough warmer air is forecast to come in farther south to bring mostly rain showers from central and southwestern Kentucky and much of Tennessee to southeastern Virginia on south with a wintry mix at times just a bit farther north in part of the lower Ohio Valley to parts of the central Appalachians and into central Virginia.

Additional Alberta Clippers will arrive this week.

Already the next clipper will bring a swath of snow from parts of North Dakota and Minnesota Monday night to parts of Wisconsin, Michigan and other areas around the Great Lakes during Tuesday.

Meteorologist Mark Mancuso is referring to the weather pattern as "Clipper Mania!"

"At least four additional clippers will move along from the Upper Midwest to the coastal Northeast affecting some of the same and some different areas through next Monday," Mancuso said.
