  • The January Blizzard of 2015 Aims for NYC and Boston

    January 26, 2015; 12:09 PM ET

    In the worst-hit areas, plan for travel bans (for all non-emergency activities) because of impassable roads and extremely poor visibility. This map shows our projection for snow accumulations by early Wednesday. In many areas the heaviest snow should fall overnight and tomorrow morning.

    January 26, 2015; 7:39 AM ET

    In the worst-hit areas, plan for travel bans (for all non-emergency activities) because of impassable roads and extremely poor visibility. If you get stranded, rescue crews may not be able to reach you. Storms like this sometimes generate thunderstorms within the heaviest snow bands.

    This was our snow accumulation projection as of mid-morning. A storm that will develop in the Midwest on Sunday is likely to track to the Virginia-Maryland coastal area by Monday morning, then turn east. It will probably bring some to snow places that get mostly rain out out of the first storm.

  • Snow Crosses Middle Atlantic Region Today, but What About the Weekend?

    January 21, 2015; 8:20 AM ET

    Much can still change with regard to the Saturday storm. This draft map from this morning shows how the accumulations may turn out. The AccuWeather.com staff will be watching this closely. I am happy to see many of our newer forecasters making major contributions.

  • Snow Chances Between DC and Boston

In New York City, this is the first year out of the last nine to have no 2-inch or greater snow event to this point in winter.

    January 19, 2015; 7:10 AM ET
