After a storm responsible for heavy snow moves away, bitterly cold weather is in store for Baltimore.

After a mild start to the week, a storm originating from western Canada strengthened upon nearing the coast Tuesday and produced heavy snow, dramatically colder conditions and travel delays.

Ice can form on paved and concrete surfaces beneath the snow Tuesday night.

Temperatures will fall into the single digits Tuesday night as the wind increases. RealFeel® temperatures will plunge below zero.

Gusty winds on Wednesday will cause additional blowing and drifting snow and continue dangerously low RealFeel temperatures.

Frigid weather will then continue through much of the balance of the week.

Snow will fall from parts of North Carolina to New England with the storm spanning Tuesday and Tuesday night.
