Accuweather is reporting that a storm responsible for heavy snow from Denver to Kansas City on Saturday will affect the mid-Atlantic into Monday with snow, slush and rain into Monday. Heavier snow will fall in part of the central Appalachians and along the coast.
SNowfall forecasts for Northeastern Pennsylvania are for 2 to 4 inches or more.
The storm will struggle with marginal temperatures along the I-95, causing some of the snow to fall as rain or melt as it falls. However, enough slush and poor visibility will result in travel delays and foiled plans to start the week for many.
In much of the mid-Atlantic, part of the storm will occur on Sunday night, when road surface temperatures are cold. As a result, many Monday morning commuters will have to negotiate slippery conditions.
From Washington, D.C., to Baltimore, Wilmington, Philadelphia, Trenton and New York, the part of the storm that occurs during the day on Monday will fight the March sun effect. Even when concealed by clouds, enough energy gets through to warm road surfaces, causing some or all of the snow to melt.
