A new storm has moved up from the Southwestern states, bringing another dose of accumulating snow to Harrisburg and southern Pennsylvania Tuesday.

Enough snow will fall to make city roads and runways slippery and to shovel and plow in the outlying areas during the morning and midday hours.

The snow will last an average of six to eight hours and will reach from Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Wilmington, Del., to Philadelphia, New York City, Hartford, Conn., Providence, R.I., and Boston.

The storm is forecast to bring an average of 3 inches locally, but a few locations along the I-95 corridor can receive up to around 6 inches. Most of the accumulation will be on non-paved surfaces.

The ultra fast movement of the storm will allow the snow to diminish and travel conditions to improve during the afternoon.

Arctic air will follow the storm during the middle and latter part of the week. Many locations from the Ohio Valley to the Northeast will have their lowest temperatures of the season so far.

Locally, nighttime temperatures will dip into the teens around the city, but to the single digits in the northern and western suburbs Thursday night.

Yet another storm with snow could affect the area during part of the coming weekend.
