Nor’easter to peak Tuesday with heavy snow across Northeast

A powerful nor’easter spinning off the Eastern Seaboard is bringing heavy snow and rain across the Northeast, with the worst of the weather expected Tuesday. Winter storm alerts are up for New England and interior portions of the Northeast, where more than a foot of snow is possible. High elevations could see more than 2 feet. Closer to the coast, lower snow totals are expected because of mixing with rain.

Things to know

New atmospheric river continues weather woes in California

Atmospheric rivers have been pummeling California for much of the winter, and that continues as winter enters its last week. There is an extreme risk of flooding for parts of the Golden State, with the coast and high elevations facing the most significant threat Tuesday. Flood alerts are up for nearly half of California through Wednesday night. All this rain and additional snow are raising concerns about "roofalanches," as well.
