Tropical moisture flowing north from the Gulf of Mexico is interacting with the front to produce widespread rain, the FOX Forecast Center said.
It is expected to be too warm for most places to see snow, with temperatures in the 40s and 50s. However, in the higher-terrain areas of New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, the colder air will enable the precipitation to fall as a few inches of snow.
While New York and Philadelphia will just see cold rain, portions of upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts could see significant snow. Initial snowfall forecasts show more than 5 inches could fall across much of northern Maine and even into northern New Hampshire.
According to the FOX Forecast Center, computer forecast models suggest the active weather pattern will continue into next week, bringing several rounds of rain and snow to the Northeast. However, no major storms or nor'easters that would cause significant travel disruptions are currently predicted.
