A new storm has moved up from the Southwestern states, bringing a dose of accumulating snow to Baltimore and the suburbs Tuesday.
Enough snow will fall to shovel and plow in much of the area during the morning hours, making for a slippery commute.
The snow will last an average of six to eight hours and will reach from Roanoke, Va., to Washington, D.C., Wilmington, Del., New York City, Hartford, Conn., Providence, R.I., and Boston.
The storm is forecast to bring an average of 3 inches locally, but a few locations along the I-95 corridor and in central Virginia can receive up to around 6 inches. Most of the snow accumulation will be on non-paved surfaces.
The ultra fast movement of the storm will allow the snow to end during the afternoon and travel conditions to improve.
Arctic air will follow the storm during the middle and latter part of the week. Many locations from the Ohio Valley to the Northeast will have their lowest temperatures of the season so far.
Locally, nighttime temperatures will dip into the teens around the city, but to the single digits in the northern and western suburbs Thursday night.
Yet another storm with snow could affect the area during part of the coming weekend.
The Balkan Peninsula will get a taste of summer through the midweek.
Parts of this week will feel more like summer across the Midwest and Northeast with the warmest days of 2015 so far.
Wind, seas and surf will build in advance of what could potentially become the first tropical system of 2015 along the southeastern Atlantic coast of the United States this week.
Showers and thunderstorms will frequent the Central states this week with the risk of beneficial rain and also the potential for flooding and severe weather.
The threat for potentially damaging thunderstorms will shift eastward across Europe through midweek.
