AccuWeather.com Meteorologists are tracking snow across parts of the Carolinas and southern mid-Atlantic while parts of New England brace for another round of accumulating snow and blizzard conditions.
AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski states that “While this storm is not likely to impact an area as large as the New England Blizzard of 2013, nor bring as intense snowfall, it could get very nasty from Rhode Island and Cape Cod through Boston, southeastern New Hampshire, much of Maine and New Brunswick.
After a preliminary period of light precipitation brought some light drizzle and snow to parts of the mid-Atlantic and southern New England last night into this morning, the main event will develop tonight.
Accumulating snow will develop late this afternoon into tonight from eastern North Carolina through eastern Long Island into the eastern portion of New England and parts of New Brunswick, Canada.
Snow will increase in intensity overnight across eastern New England, while tapering off across the Carolinas and the Delmarva Peninsula.
AccuWeather.com Meteorologists are expecting 1-3 inches of snow accumulation from near Cape Hatteras, N.C., to Norfolk, Va., Atlantic City, N.J., and areas just east of New York City.
Farther north and east, a swath of 3-6 inches is likely from far eastern Long Island through Boston, Mass., Portland, Maine, and Bangor, Maine.
Upwards of a foot of snow can accumulate over Down East Maine, Cape Cod, and parts of New Brunswick.
