    Snowflakes May Reach Atlanta, Charlotte Tuesday Night

    Snowflakes accompanying the arctic invasion into the eastern U.S. will not only reach the Northeast's I-95 corridor, but may also press southward to Atlanta and Charlotte.

    AccuWeather.com meteorologists now feel that the impending arctic blast will not pave the way for a widespread disruptive snowstorm at midweek.

    A storm along the leading edge of the arctic air could still strengthen across the western Atlantic, but should do so far enough offshore to prevent significant snow from unfolding along the East Coast.

    That does not mean this arctic blast will not be accompanied by snow.


    Several inches of snow will whiten northwestern and north-central Montana through Sunday night, then the arctic air's arrival will be accompanied by rain and snow over the Midwest and Northeast Sunday night through Tuesday.

    The rain is likely to end as a coating to an inch or so of snow around the Great Lakes and to the central Appalachians and upper Ohio River Valley.

    Snow will also accumulate downwind of the Great Lakes where lake-effect snow then takes shape.

    Any snow would just make an appearance in Boston, New York City and Philadelphia.

    Snowflakes may even be seen in Charlotte and Atlanta as the band of snow works southward down the spine of the Appalachians late Tuesday through Tuesday night.

    Any snowflakes in these two cities would occur Tuesday night and do nothing more than serve as a reminder that winter is just around the corner. No accumulation will occur.


    An inch or two of accumulation is expected in the mountains of the southern Appalachians.
