Storm system could bring snow, wintry mix to metro

Spring forward — even if winter is back

Winter Storm Watches have been issued from CT up through to ME for the possibility of 4 to 8 inches of snow from Monday evening through Tuesday afternoon in the Boston area, and 6 to 12 inches in Maine.

The total snowfall should be less than an inch on the Peninsula - further west in the state, accumulation will peak around 3 inches.

Snow showers and flurries will then continue through Monday.

Heavy snow is expected in the Appalachians, including around Roanoke, Virginia. It'll be wet and mixed with frozen rain, the weather service said.

Sustained winds are projected to peak at 20 to 25 miles per hour, with wind gusts up to 30 to 35 MPH possible.

More bad news is predicted for Tuesday with snow expected to be fall again sometime before 1 p.m., according to the weather service. Up to a foot of snow is not out of the question in this area.

Any snow amounts will depend on the storm's track and surface temperatures. Therefore, the forecast totals could decrease or increase compared to what is now depicted.

The second half of the week looks like it will be dry and seasonably cold, with temperatures forecast to be in the 40s.

Most of this will occur north of Interstate 40 and on the northern Cumberland Plateau. Widespread tree damage and power outages are not expected.

Parts of New Jersey remained without power after last week's storm.

Astronomical tides are low, so that should help reduce the threat of coastal flooding.

If the storm system intensifies, locally higher accumulation is possible.
