(NEW YORK) — A winter storm is expected to bring substantial snowfall to parts of the Upper Midwest Tuesday, with a burst of snow slated to cover the East Coast in the afternoon and evening.
Winter weather advisories are out for parts of Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin ahead of the March storm. In Chicago, the snow is expected to change to sleet then rain during the morning hours.
The winter-weary Northeast is bracing for more snow Tuesday. More than 100 inches of snow has fallen in Boston this season, the city less than 4 inches from surpassing the record set in the mid 1990’s.
Boston could fall short of the record with Tuesday’s snowfall, but break the record with additional snowfall Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
While 1-3 inches is possible along the I-95 corridor Tuesday, some areas such as Philadelphia and New York City could receive 6-8 inches with Wednesday night’s snowfall.
