    New Year Wintry Mix in D.C., Flurries NYC

    A storm system passing by through the South will bring a light wintry mix to the southern part of the mid-Atlantic and flurries farther north on New Year's Day.

    A small accumulation of snow is in store for part of the central Appalachians with a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain possible in part of the West Virginia/Virginia/western Maryland mountains into Tuesday.

    For most areas east of the Appalachians, not enough frozen precipitation will fall to accumulate.


    A few flurries can fly in New York City with a little wet snow and sleet switching to a dash of plain rain around Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

    Of the major cities in the mid-Atlantic, Pittsburgh has the best shot at picking up an inch or so of natural confetti. A wintry mix is forecast for Charleston, W.Va.

    Folks traveling along I-79 and portions of I-64, I-68, I-76 and I-80 through the central Appalachians should be prepared for slow and slippery travel during the first few hours of 2013. A few patches of snow and a wintry mix could reach part of the I-81 corridor from Pennsylvania to northern Virginia.

    Rain will fall from southeastern Virginia and the lower part of the Delmarva Peninsula to North Carolina along I-95.
