While a low pressure moving through the eastern United States will produce soaking rains, especially in the southeast and southern Mid Atlantic, as cold air wraps around behind it, light to moderate snow is forecast to fall on the northern portion of this system.
Rain will mix with or change to sleet and plain snow at times across portions of northeastern Pennsylvania, northern New Jersey, Upstate New York, northern Connecticut, western and central Massachusetts, and portions of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Snow will generally be light, with 1-2″ up to 3″ possible in these areas. However, just enough cold air will be available at higher elevations to yield heavier amounts. Here, 3-6″ is possible with upwards of 8″ possible in remote peaks.
For now, no accumulating snow is expected along the I-95 corridor or the big cities of the northeast from this system. However, passing snow showers or snow flurries can’t be ruled out for the New York City metro area.
