National Weather Service issues winter weather advisory

On Tuesday expect mostly sunny skies and a high near 42 in Providence.

The storm is bringing freezing rain, heavy snow and strong winds to a large swath of the Midwest, snarling traffic and forcing the closure of many schools and some government offices. The counter clockwise winds around the storm will bring moisture and colder air aloft into Central New York. Once the snowfall begins, it could fall hard, at a rate of an inch or two an hour, according to the weather service.

More than 5,000 homes and businesses remained without power Monday in the Lehigh Valley, as well as 23,000 in the harder-hit Poconos.

As much as 6 to 9 inches (15 to 23 centimeters) of snow could fall starting late Tuesday in New York's five boroughs, northern New Jersey and southern CT, the National Weather Service said.

Various warnings of potential flooding are in effect from 10 a.m.to 3 p.m. on Monday and again from 9 p.m. on Monday until Tuesday at 12 a.m. Although the service said its forecasters are not certain of how much snow CT will get, and exactly where it is going to fall, the heaviest snowfall is likely to be Wednesday night. University of North Dakota and North Dakota State University also closed, affecting more than 26,000 students.

The watch goes into effect Wednesday afternoon and ends Thursday evening. If you have travel plans from Albany east and south Wednesday, however, they could be impacted by this storm.

Snow will cover New Hampshire and western Maine. But where mixing or a change to rain occurs, 3"-6" is more likely.

The city of Quincy, just south of Boston, says it is sending trash trucks through the hard-hit neighborhoods all week to pick up storm-damaged furniture, carpeting, and bedding. Both outcomes are still possible at this point, and hopefully the disagreement among our computer models will be sorted out in the next 24 hours and the correct solution will become clear.
