Low pressure will be moving off the U.S Mid Atlantic coastline this afternoon, track out to sea, and then lift northeastward into southeastern Canada late tomorrow and into Wednesday. As it does so, strong winds and moderate to heavy snow are expected to develop across the region.

The latest guidance suggests widespread snowfall amounts of 6-10 inches can be expected across much of New England and Atlantic Canada, with heavier totals of 12-18+ inches possible from southeastern New England, including the greater Boston area, northeastward into Maine and New Brunswick. Sustained winds of 25-35 mph with gusts up to 50-60 mph) will also be possible, with stronger winds offshore.

Main Impacts
Snow on roadways could lead to hazardous travel conditions and minor to locally moderate delays possible. Some power outages will be possible with some minor business disruptions possible, especially where the heaviest snow falls. Strong winds will also contribute to power outages and low visibility in areas of blowing snow. Coastal flooding will be possible in areas that see strong northeasterly winds.
