A new storm has moved up from the Southwestern states, bringing a dose of accumulating snow to Washington, D.C. 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 Baltimore, 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 middle of the day and travel conditions will improve during the afternoon.
