Boston area feeling wrath of winter storm.

PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) – A major snowstorm with blizzard-like conditions could drop a foot or more of snow across most parts of the Northeast as they gear up for the workweek right after the first real storm of the winter hit them with rain, several inches of snow and messy slush. A storm system diving out of the Midwest has the potential to slowly coat from Philadelphia up to Massachusetts and Maine with snow beginning late Sunday night into Monday and intensifying greatly well into Tuesday, the National Weather Service said.

The storm, which brewed late Saturday around the Iowa-Minnesota line, is likely to track down into the central Appalachians and then very slowly traverse its way through the Northeast states and reach the Gulf of Maine late Tuesday night, he said. The slow movement of the storm, he said, could help produce quite a bit of snowfall and blizzard-like or blizzard conditions: at least three hours of wind gusts of 35 mph or greater and visibility of less than a quarter of a mile because of snow or blowing snow. Snow in those areas began early Saturday — and it could mix with freezing rain, sleet, and rain before returning to snow in the evening, forecasters said. It would be the second wallop for the Northeast after what happened Saturday, when a storm crawling up the East Coast left a slushy, snowy coating from Pennsylvania to New England. So watch out for that Monday morning commute, things will be very active around here.” After that comes through, Burnett says we can expect cloudy and cold conditions Tuesday and Wednesday, and milder conditions Thursday with a rain-snow mix.
