Over 29 million people are under a blizzard warning, and 14 million people are under a winter storm warning through Tuesday and Wednesday.
Snow is forecast to redevelop and may accumulate as the day wears on. A slick PM commute is possible.
One to 3 feet of snow, damaging winds, and white-out conditions are expected in what the National Weather Service is a “crippling and potentially historic blizzard.”
This evening and tonight may hold the best chance for accumulation in the immediate metro area.
Wet snow overnight into Monday morning may have only small effects, but a second wave Monday night may be a bigger deal.
New York City could see 20 inches of snow when all is said and done. Snow totals in Boston could rival the snowiest storm the city has ever seen: 27.6 inches on Feb. 17-18, 2003.
Tonight's clipper system is set to explode into an intense Nor'easter. The question is, how much snow does it give us before heading up the coast?
An Alberta Clipper seems likely to bring at least a thin blanket of snow to most of the D.C. area by Monday morning, though whether it's more than that is an open question.
The storm's configuration and rapid intensification could lead to wicked wind speeds which, in combination with snow, may create white-out conditions that would be paralyzing for travel.
The worst of the overnight storm is moving away, but there are lingering impacts today. More snow is ahead Sunday night.
