Winter storm on the way for the Northeast

Posted on: February 16th, 2018 by ABC News No Comments

ABC News(NEW YORK) — Heavy rain and storms moved through Ohio Valley and parts of the Northeast overnight Friday, but it’s a second line of storms that will bring snow to the region on Saturday.

The storm system already brought snow to parts of Colorado, including up to 18 inches in some parts and a few inches west of Denver.

A winter storm watch has already been posted for part of the I-95 corridor from Pennsylvania to Massachusetts, including New York City, Hartford, Connecticut and Boston.

The storm is expected to move east from the Rockies on Saturday and will move into the Washington, D.C., area around 5 p.m.

The snow will begin in New York City around 8 p.m. Saturday evening.

Snow begins in Boston closer to midnight.

The heaviest snow is expected away from the coast — west of Washington, D.C.; west of Philadelphia; north of New York City; and west of Boston, where 7 inches could accumulate locally.

In the major cities along the I-95 corridor, it looks like there could be up to 1 inch in Washington, D.C.; 1 to 3 inches in Philadelphia; 2 to 4 inches in New York City; 4 to 7 inches in Hartford; and 3 to 6 inches in Boston.

Temperatures will be mild — just near freezing — so most major roads will be wet.
