Strong northwest flow is dumping snow in the high country from Seven Springs in Pennsylvania down to Snowshoe in West Virginia.

Ice coverage on the lakes is well below normal, allowing the lake-effect snow machine to crank.

Such unusual, narrow swaths of snow are a nightmare to predict.

A few snow flurries are possible late today and late Friday.

A cold front passes tonight. Storms are a risk out front, and cold winds are likely once it's gone.

Damaging wind gusts are possible, and a tornado can't be ruled out.

The rapidly intensifying storm will cause one of the biggest lake-effect snow events of the season, along with a squall line in the Mid-Atlantic.

Isolated damaging winds are possible with storms this evening, and then we’re colder and breezy tomorrow into the weekend.

Visibility may be quite low in some foggier spots overnight into early Wednesday.

Cold-season setups like this are notoriously tough to predict, but have to be watched closely.

Seeing either type of cloud is unusual. But for both features to be wrapped up in one cloud? An exotic sight.

An expansive storm is dominating the weather from the Great Lakes to the East through at least Thursday.

A showery morning will be followed by a cloudy but drier afternoon.

Heavy snowfall this month has caused “moderate” to “considerable” avalanche danger in the areas around Aspen, Telluride and Breckenridge.

It won't amount to a lot, but it'll help knock back some of the early-season pollen.

During a recent warm stretch, snow cover markedly declined as melt ponds formed on Eagle Island, Antarctica, and nearby ice shelves.

The dust, which could reach the Azores and even the U.K. by late this week, is part of a weather system bringing record warmth to parts of France.

If the Earth were flat, the weather would be nothing like it is today.

The spring-like storm system is bringing a taste of every season, from heavy snow to severe thunderstorms.

The mild air sticks around into midweek, as do increasing clouds and a more unsettled pattern.

Temperatures will spike into the upper 50s again tomorrow despite increased cloud cover.

Technology built for bomb tests could help confirm tornado touchdowns.

Spring fever starts to kick in with a second dose of sunny and mild to close out the weekend.

Temperatures make a run at 60 degrees Sunday.
