Cold air in the northeastern United States brings more snow promising a freezing Thanksgiving, as millions travel on that day by air or road. The bouts of wintry weather can create disturbance for the travellers.
A narrow zone of rain and snow that swept through the interior Northeast to end the weekend will exit the New England coast on Monday. It is followed by another series of snowfall in parts of the Northeast on Monday night through Tuesday according to the AccuWeather.
This round will spread accumulating snowfall over a wide area and may aggravate inconvenience to the travelers.
The accumulating snow is expected to develop across northern Pennsylvania on Monday evening and spread to New England into Tuesday. Snowfall of 1-inch to 3-inch, is expected on this swath. However the storm can drop 3-6 inches snowfall from northern Connecticut to coastal Maine.
Further strengthening of storm can bring more than 6 inches of snow even more quickly near the coast.
The cities of Springfield and Worcester, Massachusetts; Brattleboro, Vermont; Concord and Portsmouth, New Hampshire; and Portland, Maine, are in line to receive the heaviest bout of snow and also greatest disruptions to travel and daily routines.
Stretches of interstates 84, 87, 90, 91, 93 and 95, as well as roads in other area can become slick and treacherous as per the AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski.
Schools in New England that have not closed for Thanksgiving already might close on Tuesday.
While the heaviest snow is expected to the north and west, Boston can receive 1-3 inches from the storm.
Travel disruptions can occur for the evening commute along I-95 from Boston to Portland and Bangor, Maine. Airline passengers should anticipate delays.
New York City can expect rain with a few wet snowflakes possibly mixing in from Monday night to Tuesday. However, northern and western suburbs can be whitened with snow.
