Weather Authority: Nor'easter to bring heavy snow

This would be the second nor'easter to blow up off the Atlantic Coast in the last five days - a remarkable winter turnaround that has could result in one of the most disruptive weather weeks in the period of record. Snow accumulations could easily surpass a foot in areas west of the I-95 corridor, with some places in northwest New Jersey forecast to get up to 2 feet.

Evening travelers face major challenges as a nor'easter continues to dump a sloshy mix of rain and snow throughout the NY metro area.

There were 120 flight cancellations and more than 300 delays at the Minneapolis airport as of late afternoon, according to Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Patrick Hogan.

To the north, chances of heavy snow are increasing for Tug Hill. Roads still may be a bit slick Thursday morning. The impact on the afternoon rush hour is forecast to be major with heavy or very heavy snow falling across most of the state, several inches of snow on most roads and near blizzard conditions. Among them were the University of North Dakota and North Dakota State University, affecting more than 26,000 students.

The city of Philadelphia could see up to 8 inches of snow. Some mixing could then occur overnight, with the possibility of snow and freezing rain early Wednesday morning before a change back to all snow by about 8 a.m. Warmer air in the Valley is likely to limit amounts. Pennsylvania's Poconos Mountains and parts of western MA could see up to 18 inches.

Even though areas near the rain-snow line would see less snow, that snow is likely to be wet and heavy, capable of taking down branches and knocking out power.

Visibility under half a mile, icy roads, and blowing snow drifts may cause risky travel conditions.

Strong winds could lead to more power outages, especially across the coastline. Overall, it looks like we'll miss out on any widespread outages, which is great news. The snow is expected to be heavy and wet. Slick travel likely during the PM hours.

As of 3:42 p.m. Eastern, the NWS was predicting possibly four to eight inches of heavy snow in New Jersey, southern CT, and southeast NY, from midnight through 4 a.m. Thursday. The storm killed nine people and knocked out power to about 2 million homes and businesses.

Skies over Madison should be mostly sunny Wednesday and Thursday, and partly sunny Friday through Sunday, with highs near 29, 30, 35, 39 and 39, and lows Wednesday night through Saturday night around 16, 14, 21 and 24.
