The next winter storm will hit the Boston area into Wednesday afternoon with a round of travel delays, power outages and disruptions to daily activities. Another storm may hit this weekend.

While the storm Monday started warm and became colder, the storm at midweek will start cold and become warmer. It will also track much farther north and is forecast to put down heavy snow over central and northern New England as a result.

As warmer air invades the storm over southern areas, a change to a wintry mix or ice will occur.

Commuters should expect major travel delays much of Wednesday due to heavy snow, ice or both in some cases.

The region should get a little more of a breather before the next storm rolls in. The timing of the third storm in less than a week is scheduled for this weekend.

The Sunday to Monday storm could be the strongest of the winter, if it develops to its full potential and occurs as a single storm, rather than two separate ones
