Snow, ice created treacherous travel across interior northeastern US into Tuesday

Winter Storm Olympia may have moved out into the Atlantic, but it left Rochester NY with over 18 inches of snow. Is There More Snow in the Near Future?

Rochester New York received over 18 inches of snow during winter storm Olympia. According accuweather.com: “Enough snow and ice has occurred to snarl travel, disrupt daily routines and cause sporadic power outages in a large part of the eastern United States spanning into Tuesday.”

There is another storm developing in the west. We’ll see how it develops as it reaches the east into early next week. For a live weather radar map and developments click here.

Winter Storm Olympia Spreading Snow and Ice Through Northeast and South-The Weather Channel

The Weather Channel Reports Winter Storm Olympia Spreading Snow and Ice Through Northeast and South including Buffalo and Rochester New York.

The Weather Channel has stated Winter Storm Olympia has produced hazardous travel, spreading snow and ice throughout the East. Furthermore, “various winter weather advisories, winter storm warnings and freezing rain advisories have been issued by the National Weather Service for Olympia, extending Maine to North Carolina.”

The most significant snowfall accumulations will be in an arc from northern Maine southwest along the Canadian border to western New York, northwest Pennsylvania and northeast Ohio. As colder air wraps in behind the low pressure system, some locations from West Virginia to central Pennsylvania and central New York may transition back to snow Tuesday night.

The heaviest accumulations, potentially more than a foot, will likely occur in a swath from the Appalachians to northwest Pennsylvania, western New York and parts of northern New England.
