Spring begins Tuesday; a little snow possible Wednesday

Canadian model shows heavy snow over the D.C. area Tuesday

Northern Virginia is expected to see rain and a heavy wet snow Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Plan for hard travel conditions, especially during the evening commute on Wednesday with possible reductions in visibility.

The National Weather Service has issued winter storm and coastal flood watches ahead of Wednesday's storm.

Weather forecasts for Berkshire County are handled by the National Weather Service in Albany and appear in a separate map, seen in the above gallery.

Still several days out from the storm, the forecast could change.

Precipitation arrives late tonight and expands into southeastern Pennsylvania, and southern and central New Jersey Tuesday morning.

That system is expected to bring slushy snow Tuesday to Appalachia as it moves toward the East Coast, where it's poised to join with an upper-level disturbance now moving off the Pacific Ocean into California and forecast to whip across the continent. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts. As the sun rises, we'll see a complicated mixture of all snow (mainly north of I-195), all rain (along the immediate coast), and wintry mix (along the I-295 corridor).

There's little doubt in my mind now that we're going to see a "hit" from this second Wednesday storm.

About 2 to 3 inches ion snow is expected for the Lewistown and State College areas.

Winds will peak on Wednesday, with gusts to 40+ miles per hour across interior NJ and 50+ miles per hour along the coast.

Be aware that low temperatures will mean continued potential for refreeze and slick road conditions. Finally, expect strong winds on Tuesday along the coastline.

The wet snow and gusty winds could contribute to power outages and tree damage in the Northeast. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.
