'Plowable' snow possible Monday into Tuesday

The Northeast is bracing for its third nor'easter in fewer than two weeks, per the AP.

Snow showers may also dust parts of the interior Northeast and Great Lakes behind the storm system. By Monday it will move off of the Coast where it will continue to intensify, drawing down colder air as it does so that will change the rain over to snow in the mountains.

The Bronx and Queens have the best chance of seeing some accumulation, although it will mainly be on grass and cars. No accumulations are expected. Street and sidewalks are projected to be wet, with minor accumulation.

Astronomical tides are low, so that should help reduce the threat of coastal flooding.

Parts of southern MA and the Cape may be getting wetter, heavier snow, which could lead to power outages.

Long Island is projected to receive the most snow due to the storm.

The Boston area is expected to get 6 to 9 inches, while southern ME could see nearly 18 inches by Wednesday.

1 to 2 inches of snow is possible in New Jersey and Rockland, Orange, and Putnam Counties. Eight inches could fall in West Virginia. "There are still some questions as to what time exactly this transition happens and how much ice mixes in before snow, which could impact snowfall amounts, but in general about 3-5" are expected with higher amounts above 3500ft. The precipitation will likely transition to all snow by the afternoon and early evening.

The temperature at 8 a.m. was about 39 degrees with a high of 41 degrees predicted for the day.

Meteorologist Mark Dixon is carefully watching a third coastal storm, Winter Storm Ferris, which is due to make its appearance late Monday night and into Tuesday morning.
