Snow will affect much of northeastern Pennsylvania on Tuesday, while up to a foot of snow clobbers the I-95 corridor. The snow will mark a dramatic change to much colder weather.

Snow and slow travel are in store over much of the Northeast into Tuesday night with northeastern Pennsylvania on the northern and western fringe of heavy snow.

Increasing wind and plunging temperatures into the evening will cause blowing and drifting snow across the region.

Ice can form on paved and concrete surfaces beneath the snow, making travel by vehicle and foot very slippery.

Temperatures will hover in the teens throughout Tuesday and will fall to near zero Tuesday night as the wind increases. RealFeel® temperatures will plunge well below zero.

Very cold and windy weather will continue through much of the balance of the week.
