-Winter Storm Watch from Midnight Tuesday to 1 a.m. Wednesday for Sussex County. The storm will be developing in the Southern Plains early today, tracking up to the northeast to near Chicago and then into MI by Tuesday night. Unfortunately for those of us that have had enough of Old Man Winter, this may not be our only weather headache this week as yet another storm could provide additional snowfall by late Thursday into early Friday. The transition from snow to icy mix may not happen until after 1 p.m. Tuesday - and I'm not entirely certain that this area of the state goes to all.

Over Sunday night, snow was expected to be confined to the mountains, with a "VERY BRIEF" break on Monday morning before another winter system began dropping snow in the Seattle area.

Snowfall amounts of 25 to 35 cm and blowing snow Tuesday into Wednesday.

A winter storm will move through the region early Tuesday through Tuesday night, bringing significant snowfall to much of northern MI. As the low pressure pulls away to the east Tuesday, northwest winds will strengthen gusting over 35 miles per hour and snow will gradually end from west to east later Tuesday/Tuesday evening. The commutes for both Tuesday morning and Tuesday evening may be a messy ride.

Generally, 3 to 6 inches of snowfall is expected for much of the region. This of course may still change some as new data becomes available. The line for the rain/snow mix look to be holding right around the area of Baltimore City with areas south of the city expected to see more rain than snow. They will pick up a bit more as the storm departs into Tuesday night. Rain and Snow are possible by Friday.

Then comes the more significant storm on Tuesday, Feb. 12.
