Our very active, stormy pattern continues this next work week as another winter storm promises to dump several more inches of snow on the area. There could also be new ice accumulation of less than 0.1 of an inch possible. As the low pressure pulls away to the east Tuesday, northwest winds will strengthen gusting over 35 miles per hour and snow will gradually end from west to east later Tuesday/Tuesday evening.
A low pressure system brewing over the southern plains States may intensify into a winter storm as it tracks over southern Ontario Tuesday, the statement said.
The storm system is expected to leave the region by Wednesday.
The heaviest snow is expected to come Tuesday morning and afternoon, potentially making travel hard across much of northern Wisconsin, the Weather Service said. Cars are pictured driving on snow and ice on Interstate 405 approaching Kirkland, Washington, on Saturday. The transition from snow to icy mix to rain will finally happen between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Plan on a slow Tuesday morning and Tuesday afternoon commute.
There is a winter weather advisory in effect for parts of Northeast Ohio. It is my meteorological duty to report this list, although I admittedly can't completely wrap my head around the National Weather Service's thinking.
-Winter Storm Watch from 6 a.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday for western Passaic County.
The snow is expected to taper off to flurries on Wednesday.
Environment Canada says to avoid travel if possible, with rapidly accumulating snow causing potentially hazardous conditions. East wind will be at 7 to 10 miles per hour. Follow him on Facebook or Twitter for the latest forecast and realtime weather updates.
