No Break for the Winter-Weary; More Snow, Cold Coming by Paul Yeager

While residents in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic have had more than their share of winter weather, the next couple of weeks promise to bring more of the same: plenty of cold air and the potential for snowstorms.

Through the first part of next week, snowfall will be light to moderate as a couple of quick-moving and relatively weak storms sweep through the region. The cold will be a few degrees below normal late-January records -- not as intense as it was early this week.

But the potential for another major storm looms for the middle of next week, and this storm is likely to be followed by more intense cold, compliments of the Arctic region of Canada. Nighttime temperatures might again plummet to below zero by late next week.

This overall pattern -- an active storm track with widespread cold air from the northern Plains to the East Coast -- will likely continue through at least the middle of February, adding to a winter that has produced impressive and, in some cases, record-breaking snowfall.

Boston has had just over 5 feet of snow so far this winter, nearly 2 feet more than the total annual average.

New York City, which has had its snowiest January on record, with 36 inches, is now within 20 inches of breaking the seasonal snowfall record of 75.6 inches. Parts of northern New Jersey and Connecticut have also had the snowiest January on record, and current snowfall depths exceed 2 feet across much of the Northeast.
