Frigid arctic air will return to the Northeast and Midwest this week, but the colder weather will not return alone. Slippery rounds of snow are in store.
A pair of storms--one set to move through the Midwest, the other across the South--on Wednesday is bringing the greatest chance for accumulating snowfall to the Northeast.
It appears though that the storms will remain separate until reaching Atlantic Canada, resulting in accumulations on the lighter side across the Northeast.
The steadier, more widespread snow in the Northeast will arrive on Wednesday as low pressure develops just off the East Coast.
This system is now expected to track farther off the coast than previously thought, but will still be close enough to bring a light accumulating snowfall to the Northeast.
Although this system is not forecast to bring heavy accumulations to the I-95 corridor, it may still lead to minor travel delays.
This includes the possibility of flight delays and cancellations in cities such as New York City, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Boston.
While folks along the East Coast will be tracking the midweek snow, all residents from the Midwest to Northeast will experience waves of colder air this week as the polar vortex sinks southward.
Since the cold air will hold firm through the start of March, the Northeast could become the target of one or two more snowstorms during that time.
