Gray, White and Wet

November 27, 2012; 11:04 AM ET

Tuesday 11:15 a.m.

The storm, causing mostly rain in Philadelphia and New York City but snow just to their north and west, will continue to affect the Middle Atlantic region this afternoon as it advances through southern New England. The only chance of snow accumulation in either of the two cities mentioned above will be later this afternoon as low-level cold air comes in from the north. It will be a race between dry air ending the precipitation and cold air causing a changeover before the precipitation ends.

In Providence and Boston, there is a rain versus snow issue, but it appears both areas can receive 1-3 inches of snow overnight. This video shows the setup then proceeds with what to expect for the rest of the week.

We had some snow from today's system at AccuWeather headquarters in central Pennsylvania:

  • Christmas Present for Snow Lovers?

    The maps I searched for were from December 1960. I was 13 and was thoroughly overjoyed when Philadelphia got 14.6 inches on Dec. 11 and 12. Schools were closed for three days, something that did not happen again until the Blizzard of January '96.

  • Christmas Eve to be Wet, Mild and Windy Along I-95

    December 24, 2014; 8:13 AM ET

    At midnight, the temperature will be in the 50s to low 60s from Virginia to Southern New England... more like late spring than Christmas time. Meanwhile, cold air will be advancing into western parts of Pennsylvania and New York, driven by strong winds. Earlier, this "cold" air mass looked like it would be more potent than it has turned out to be. This map shows the pressure pattern and some temperatures at 9 a.m.

  • Northeast: Damp, Foggy and Milder Until Christmas

    Temperatures are likely to be in the 50s from Boston to Washington, D.C., during the nighttime hours of Christmas Eve. Dry chillier weather will arrive during Christmas Day, with dry weather lasting until at least Saturday.

  • Wet, Not White, for Christmas Shopping and Travel

    This picture, which may or may not have been taken very recently, has a red dot near the North Pole. I cannot confirm that a red dot is there on the ground or that it means anything. We will monitor the area for any signs of activity and advise everyone to maintain the spirit of being nice and not naughty.

  • Dry Weekend for Shoppers, Then a Stormy Christmas Week

    December 19, 2014; 9:51 AM ET

    Rain with areas of fog should spread from Virginia to New Jersey Monday or Monday night then spread into New England for Tuesday. From the mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania into the interior of New England this could at least start as snow or ice. The GFS for 1 AM New Year's Day looks interesting. See the map below. Whether or not this storm develops and where it will snow or rain cannot be precisely predicted two weeks in advance using these models.
