Early Week Snowmaker Tracks Into the East, But Won't Be a Major Storm

The Weather Channel logoThe Weather Channel 2/22/2021 Linda Lam

A low-pressure system will spread snow and rain into the East to start this week, but the good news is that this snowmaker is not expected to be a major winter storm.

This system won't be as strong as other recent storms and will move fairly quickly. This will keep snowfall totals generally on the light side.

Portions of the Interstate 95 corridor could start out with a period of snow or a mix of rain and snow before a changeover to rain occurs. The highest chance of this wintry weather impacting travel will be in areas just west or north of Interstate 95.

The interior Northeast has the highest chance of seeing accumulating snow, from northern New England into Pennsylvania. Most areas will see snowfall totals of 1 to 5 inches.

Some higher snowfall amounts are possible in the eastern Great Lakes, especially in New York's Tug Hill Plateau region.

Snow may linger in parts of New England and New York on Monday night, with rain toward the southern New England coast. Lake-effect or lake-enhanced snow may develop into Tuesday.

Most locations from southeastern New England and Long Island to the mid-Atlantic coast are expected to see mainly light rain from this system.
