Storm system could bring snow, wintry mix to metro

The Virginia Department of Transportation sent out a statewide news release that warned drivers of possible winter weather.

The National Weather Service is warning MA residents that Monday night's storm could bring six to twelve inches of heavy snow with the most snowfall in eastern MA and Rhode Island. "If the nor'easter tracks closer to the coast, then high winds and coastal flooding will be an issue".

At this time, the best chance for at least six inches of snow is in parts of eastern New England, from ME southward into MA and Rhode Island. The Monday morning commute looks to be significantly impacted. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS. A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow, sleet and ice will make travel very hazardous or impossible. Eastern Long Island could face 3 to 6 inches snow, and Central Long Island could see 2 to 4 inches.

Utility PSE&G in New Jersey said it had workers from as far away as in helping local crews fix damaged lines and reset utility poles.

Jersey Central Power & Light said in a statement that most of the customers without power were expected to have it restored by late Sunday. "Power is on all around us".

Our forecast shows the bulk of the snow will be leaving the state on Tuesday night, but additional light accumulations will be possible, especially north and west of Boston on Wednesday. By the end of the week as this low moves out, our temperatures will finally moderate.
