The latest winter storm is departing the region.

Reported by: Chief Meteorologist Joe Murgo

A storm system passing just south of the region brought a significant snowfall today along and south of Route 22 this morning. This system has pulled out of the region and we will have some clearing tonight. With the clearing sky and light winds, temperatures will drop into the teens. This means that any wet roads can refreeze so use caution while driving. Any wet spot may be icy. We're going to remain in an unsettled pattern. Any sunshine early Tuesday will give way to clouds as the next system approaches the region. This storm will bring a wintry mix Tuesday night into Wednesday. Most likely precipitation will start as snow and then will change to sleet and freezing rain, perhaps even to plain rain in a few spots. The amount of snow accumulation will depend on how fast the turnover will occur and we will have a better feel on that before the changeover. But at this point in time, a significant and disrupting amount of snow or ice is likely by midday Wednesday. Any precipitation will wrap up as snow showers Wednesday afternoon. Behind this system, a ridge of high pressure will give us some sunshine Thursday and Friday with seasonably chilly temperatures. Another storm system will bring snow or a wintry mix over the weekend.
