Winter Storm Watch issued Monday night through Tuesday afternoon

The heavier snow showers are expected to come in the afternoon, with scattered, lighter chances lasting through the night into Tuesday morning.

A total of 1 to 3 inches of snow is expected through Monday. Expect cold, single-digit temperatures and wind chills below zero at times.

A Wind Chill Advisory will be in effect from 6 p.m. Monday until noon Tuesday.

The snow during the day Sunday was scattered and mostly to the north of Interstate 70, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures in the teens and low 20s are expected for the next few days. Day will feature ocean effect snow from Cape Ann through Plymouth County and parts of the Cape. Periods of light snow develop during the afternoon and lasts through the evening hours on Tuesday. A round of snow will accompany the passage of the front Monday night into early Tuesday morning.

Northern Ireland weather warning for snow and ice on way
One forecaster warned that a "potent wintry blast" is on its way and could arrive in the United Kingdom "early next week". There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected.

Meteorologists says Indy and central IN could get 2-4 inches of snow possible IN most areas. Near-freezing temperatures should persist through the week, but forecasters project a high near 40 on Friday.

The snow should start after 9 p.m. and start working its way through the region overnight.

"So it will be some very cold air for the middle of the week", Boyd said.

KYTC says low temperatures will hamper road clearing efforts, as salt and other chemicals lose potency when the weather drops below 15 degrees.
