***Another winter storm affects the Mid-Atlantic on Tuesday***

***Frigid weather continues over the Northern Plains and Rockies***

***Warm weather continues for Florida***

After the departure of a snow and ice event over the Central
Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic, another round of wintry weather is
expected to arrive early Tuesday morning. This will likely
produce accumulating snow from Virginia to the New England Coast
before quickly exiting the region Tuesday night. Winter weather
advisories are currently in effect over much of this area for
snowfall amounts of 2 to 5 inches with isolated higher amounts.

With the large-scale upper level trough over the Central U.S., the
bitterly cold Arctic air that has kept much of the Plains and
Inter-Mountain West in the deep freeze over the past week is
expected to persist for a few more days. The coldest weather will
be found from the higher elevations of the Great Basin eastward
through the Dakotas and into Minnesota, with subzero lows and high
in the single digits and teens through Wednesday, before a gradual
moderating trend commences. Many record lows have already been
set this past weekend, with some readings colder than 30 degrees
below zero!

Elsewhere across the U.S., the strong surface high from Canada
will provide well below average temperatures across much of the
nation through the middle of the week, including Texas and the
Deep South. The exception will be the Florida Peninsula where
daytime highs in the 70s and low 80s are forecast to continue.
