Strengthening Storm: Wind and Snow Coastal Maryland to Maine

March 25, 2014; 7:16 AM ET

Tuesday Morning

Here is today's video forecast.

This is a draft map shows predicted snow amounts and starting times. Note how a preliminary patch of snow advances well northward through Pennsylvania before the main precipitation reaches central New Jersey. Eventually, coastal areas will have the heaviest snow. Early tomorrow, gale-force winds and falling, swirling and drifting snow could cause blizzard conditions in extreme eastern Massachusetts (especially Cape Cod).

After tomorrow, a warming trend will spread eastward from the Plains. Instead of snow, thunderstorms and the possibility of severe weather may become the primary focus of attention. The blue line made of the S character shows where the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center says the greatest risk of severe thunderstorms will be located on Thursday and Thursday night.
