Snow will be heavy along parts of the I-95 corridor including the New York City metro area, and any early rain will change to snow farther south including Philadelphia, Baltimore, and the north and west suburbs of Washington, D.C.

Snow will also pick up early Monday morning in Boston.

Expect significant impacts on air travel in the major Northeast, particularly at the three major New York City hubs, with flight delays and, perhaps, a few cancelations possible. Check your flight status before leaving for the airport. Travel conditions will deteriorate, as well, as Monday morning rolls on.

Snow will taper off around midday or early afternoon generally south of the Mason Dixon Line, including Baltimore and Washington, D.C., and will finally exit the rest of the I-95 corridor by early evening. This means another challenging commute in New York City, Hartford and Boston Monday afternoon.

Snow will slowly taper off later Monday morning farther west in parts of West Virginia, southern Ohio, Kentucky, and southern Indiana.

The heaviest additional accumulations Monday will be in a stripe from northern West Virginia and southwest Pennsylvania into northern New Jersey and the New York City metro area, with over five inches of total accumulation expected. 

Lighter accumulations will occur farther south along I-95 including Philadelphia, Baltimore, and the north and the Washington, D.C. metro, where initial rain may persist longer before changing over to wet snow.

Generally three inches or less additional accumulation is expected farther west into parts of southern Ohio, northern Kentucky and southern Indiana.

Disorganized 96L Bringing Heavy Rains to Lesser Antilles

By Dr. Jeff Masters
August 21, 2014

Heavy rain showers are sweeping through the Lesser Antilles Islands as a strong tropical wave (Invest 96L) heads west-northwestwards at about 15 - 20 mph through the islands. Satellite loops on Thursday morning showed a pretty unimpressive system, with a broad, elongated surface circulation and a modest amount of heavy thunderstorm activity that had changed little in intensity or organization since Wednesday. The storm was poorly organized, with a clumpy appearance and just a few small low-level spiral bands.

July was the 4th warmest such since 1880 according to NOAA and the 11th warmest according to NASA data (the difference in assessments is due to several factors which I’ll discuss in a future blog). It was unusually cool in the central portion of the U.S. while record warmth was observed in parts of the U.S. Northwest, Scandinavia and the Baltic nations. Several powerful typhoons made landfall in East Asia and Hurricane Arthur took a swipe at North Carolina.

What the 5th IPCC Assessment Doesn't Include

By Angela Fritz
September 27, 2013

Melting permafrost has the potential to release an additional 1.5 trillion tons of carbon into the atmosphere, and could increase our global average temperature by 1.5°F in addition to our day-to-day human emissions. However, this effect is not included in the IPCC report issued Friday morning, which means the estimates of how Earth's climate will change are likely on the conservative side.
