AccuWeather meteorologists expect New York City and Boston to get a major snowfall from the storm, in the range of 6-12 inches, even if there is some mixing for a time. If the mixing does not occur and the storm tracks slightly offshore, even bigger accumulations could pile up.
“As we see it at this early stage, the heaviest snow ranging from 12-18 inches with the potential for locally double amounts is most likely near parts of the I-81 corridor in Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania and the I-84 corridor in New York state,” AccuWeather Senior Storm Warning Meteorologist Brian Wimer said.
Snow with this storm pair is likely to be dry and powdery in nature compared to a storm that smacked the East Coast in mid-December.
