Travel could become difficult in the mid-Atlantic states by Sunday and in parts of the New York City. Snowstorm begins in Chicago in the weekend and ends Tuesday after moving in Northeast. 6 to 10 inches of snow expected. Throughout Sunday, areas of snow will linger in parts of the Midwest and Great Lakes. Chicago officials are warning of rough wind gusts and are urging residents to drive carefully. The snow will move into Philadelphia , New York City and Boston. Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office in the New York state warned of potential power outages and dangerous roadways. Forecasters say the snowiest time of day is this Sunday morning.
Snowfall rates will be over an inch per hour. One significant uncertainty is the exact track of a secondary area of low pressure that will form near or off the Northeast coast Monday. The wind direction will switch and blow from the north because of the counter-clockwise circulation around the area of low pressure. Strong winds and coastal flooding are also possible in the Northeast. Tuesday and Wednesday will be sunnier.
