Another snowfall is expected to hit the Northeast, and the Midwest sections of the nation, following the first storm of the season.
New snowflakes are expected to sweep across the Northeast and upper Midwest early this week fresh on the heels of a major winter storm that blanketed parts of the South and Mid-Atlantic.
The National Weather Service issued winter weather advisories in connection with the expected snowfall for parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and other states. Localized snow accumulations of up to a foot are expected from Monday to Wednesday in parts of the Northeast, according to National Weather Service predictions.
Heavy Lake Effect snow will continue to the lee of the Great Lakes for the next couple of days. Snow will also return to the Northeast by Tuesday as another front moves in. Bitter cold wind chills can be expected in the Upper Mississippi Valley. Freezing temperatures will even impact central Florida. Meanwhile, elevated fire weather conditions will persist in southern California.
The new snowfall in the northern states follows Winter Storm Benji, responsible for three deaths, which led to hundreds of airline cancellations and left City Islanders and thousands of others without power as it moved through the South late last week.
