A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for the entire Hudson Valley until Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

WHAT.Heavy snow expected. Total snow accumulations of 7 to 12 inches.

Snow is expected to begin late Sunday night across a wide swath of the northeast, with "in excess of 20 inches of snow in parts of eastern Pennsylvania, northern New Jersey, southern NY, and into southern New England", the NWS said in bulletin.

Temperatures will plummet behind the front Thursday evening and night and with precipitation into the evening, this means that any liquid on paved surfaces could freeze and lead to slick travel, possibly into Friday morning.

According to a White House official, President Joe Biden met with advisors Sunday to discuss "a range of issues, including the approaching winter storm", as well as Covid-19 vaccines and economic relief.

New York City should expect snow all day on Monday, forecasters warned.

The storm could bring the nation's capital as much as 10 inches of snow.

The winter storm system that blanketed California's mountaintops and brought heavy rains that caused mudslides throughout the state is moving into the Midwest, triggering advisories for almost 100 million in the central U.S.

The storm will strengthen into a powerful nor'easter by Monday morning as it reaches the coast. Travel disruptions will be extensive from the ground to the air as the storm coats roads and runways with fresh snow. Southeast to east winds could gust as high as 35 miles per hour and cause some areas of blowing and drifting snow.

Nevertheless, Midwestern states have already seen record amounts of snow this season, and wind chill advisories have been issued in multiple states across the East Coast.

Freezing rain was also likely in North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia, the National Weather Service said.

By Tuesday, the snow is expected to move north, blanketing much of New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

"Winds are still gusting around 30-35 miles per hour, leading to blowing snow", said Storm Team 4 meteorologist Marisa Woloszyn. Gustier winds will be at the coast, up to 45 miles per hour.

In the meantime, forecasters in the New England area said the storm could last through Wednesday.
