As millions of people dig out and recover in the wake of the Blizzard of 2016, many are wondering when the next snowstorm will hit. Another storm bears watching on Friday. Communities still digging out from the blizzard in the mid-Atlantic and far southern New England will welcome a break from accumulating snow through Thursday.
A weak system passing through the region could bring a touch of drizzle and spotty freezing rain on Tuesday that could end as flurries on Wednesday.
The system to watch for a new round of potential major travel disruptions will form in the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday. The exact track of the storm will determine whether a swath of more disruptive snow spreads across the Northeast or remains offshore. According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski, “That storm will track northeastward over the Atlantic Ocean and rapidly strengthen during the latter half of the week.” CONTINUE
