    1. A low pressure are developing near the Carolina coast will strengthen and move northeastward to cause heavy snow and strong winds along the New England coast Tuesday. The area from Providence to Boston should get 10-15 inches, with lesser amounts (perhaps a few inches) toward New York City. A cold pool of air aloft will eventually join forces with the storm, but it will cause scattered snow showers and squalls from the Great Lakes into the Appalachians. This map shows the midday pressure pattern.

    It goes without saying that with the storm exiting to the Northeast and strengthening -- and a big, cold high pressure area moving in from west-central Canada -- more cold weather will be coming into the Middle and North Atlantic states. But, I will say it anyway: with the storm exiting to the Northeast and strengthening -- and a big, cold high pressure area moving in from west-central Canada -- more cold weather will be coming into the Middle and North Atlantic states.
