    Don't put your snow shovels away yet because another round of disruptive snow looms for the Interstate 95 corridor by the middle of next week.

    The storm that will first deliver debilitating ice and snow across the South will take a turn up the East Coast Tuesday into Wednesday. There is potential for enough snow to disrupt travel from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, and Portland, Maine.

    Plenty of cold air will remain in place across the Northeast following the latest rounds of snow, laying the groundworks for a few to several inches of snowfall for the major Northeast cities if the next storm hugs the coastline Tuesday into Wednesday.

    Travel disruptions both on the ground and in the air are possible, as well as school and activity delays and cancellations.

    However, a wobble in the storm's track by 50 miles could mean the difference between nuisance snowfall or a paralyzing snowstorm.

    Snow may first overspread Virginia Monday night into Tuesday before it reaches Pennsylvania, New Jersey and southeastern New York as the day progresses.

    Eastern New England will start getting snow Tuesday night into Wednesday.

    It looks like the storm may quickly intensify off the Northeast coast on Wednesday.

    If the storm strengthens rapidly around Cape Cod, there is potential that Boston and Portland could be hammered by several inches to a foot of snow, high winds and whiteout conditions at times.

    Keep checking back with AccuWeather.com for the latest details on the potential for the midweek snowstorm.

    While cold air continues to pour across the Great Lakes and the interior Northeast through the middle of next week, lake-effect snow showers will continue to dump snow over the typical snow belts and down the spine of the Appalachians.
