    (CNN)A rapidly intensifying storm known as a bomb cylcone could bring crippling winter weather across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic this weekend. Snow, ice, strong winds and flooding are all on the table, giving rise to potentially hazardous travel conditions in those regions."Confidence is increasing that a significant winter storm will create considerable impacts Friday through the weekend from the Mid-Atlantic through the Northeast," the Weather Prediction Center said Tuesday morning. The storm is expected to move up the East Coast Friday into Saturday -- its location in relation to the coast will determine whether there's a wintry mix or a foot of snow.Unfortunately, the forecast models are split on exactly where the low pressure system tracks and how strong it becomes by the end of the week. It's important to note that the forecast models change daily, and there is no reason to believe that the newer model runs are any more reliable than yesterday's runs.Read MoreBut despite the ongoing uncertainties, "it is becoming more likely that it will bring significant snow, sleet and freezing rain to the region,...

    After a brief respite from the wind and rain, another powerful storm system moves into the D.C. area late Thursday and will continue throughout Friday. Increasing cloud cover will give way to showers Thursday night and into the predawn hours of Friday, with heavier downpours possible by sunrise. “Heavy rain and a few thunderstorms will affect the region on Friday, and with a strong onshore flow out of the southeast, there could be flooding along the tidal Potomac and near the Chesapeake Bay,” Storm Team4 meteorologist Mike Stinneford said, adding that 1 to 3 feet of coastal flooding is possible. Rainfall amounts closer to the D.C. region will be similar to Monday’s storm, with most areas getting between 1.5 to 2.5 inches, Storm Team4 meteorologist Chuck Bell said. “So take some time today to ensure that gutters and storm drains are clear and that any loose, outdoor items (such as Halloween decorations) are secure,” Bell said. Bell advised reconsidering any Friday-night plans that involve being the roads because of the flood risk. “This storm will also have a great deal...
    (CNN)More than seven million Americans are under winter weather alerts and about 300,000 under blizzard warnings Sunday morning amidst a powerful storm system that blanketed parts of the western Plains with snow and unleashed violent tornadoes in Texas.

    New York : The snowstorm this weekend will complicate traffic in cities like Denver, Colorado. Photo: Joe Mahoney / . A powerful winter storm named “Xylia” could break snow record between this Friday and Sunday in areas of the western and central United States, from the Rocky Mountains to the Mississippi River Valley. A report this Friday from the CNN chain indicates that the severe conditions that the system will cause will affect, mainly, the states of Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska with several feet of snow, and it will complicate traffic on portions of highways such as Interstates 25, 70 and 80. The authorities have recommended extreme caution to the inhabitants and to stay in their homes if it is not strictly necessary to go out. “Impossible” traffic The National Weather Service (NWS) office in Cheyenne, Wyoming, predicted yesterday that it will be practically impossible to drive due to the phenomenon that some reports describe as “monstrous.” “Very difficult due to the impossible travel conditions expected throughout southeastern Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle,” said the...
    (CNN)A powerful winter storm system drenching the Southeast will drop its first snow Wednesday morning over parts of the Mid-Atlantic states before marching on to New York City, where Mayor Bill de Blasio projected it could be the "biggest storm in several years."But it's not just New York City that will take a hard hit. The peak of the storm will likely come later Wednesday and into Thursday, when heavy snowfall will pile up across the Northeast, CNN meteorologist Pedram Javaheri said. Some areas, including Washington, DC, with slightly warmer temperatures, will instead see a wintry mix. But Philadelphia and New York City could see up to 16 inches of snow, Javaheri added, while Boston could see up to 12 inches. Read More"These sort of early season snow accumulations are rather rare for a pre-Christmas time period," Javaheri said. "If Boston records more than 12.5 (inches) of snow, it would place it as (a) top-five snowstorm for any date on record before December 25." Central Pennsylvania could see up to 2 feet of snow, the National Weather Service said. "This...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Winter Storm Watch has been issued by the National Weather Service for Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs, Berks county, the Lehigh Valley and Poconos from 7 a.m. Wednesday until 7 a.m. Thursday as a powerful Nor’easter is set to impact the region. Confidence continues to increase that significant snowfall will occur across a large portion of the area. At least 6″ of snow is possible along I-95 and areas west with totals of a foot or more possible. It is not out of the question that 18+” of snow falls in the vicinity of our far northwest suburbs, Berks and the Lehigh Valley, as it stands currently. Snow along with strong winds, some coastal flooding, and bitter cold to follow, this impending winter storm will present multiple hazards. Steady and heavy snow is likely to impact much, if not all, of southeastern Pennsylvania. The consensus in recent guidance indicates that the rain/snow line will set-up over southern New Jersey. One factor that could preclude Philly and near-by New Jersey suburbs from seeing very significant snowfall would...
