Cold air will set the stage for spotty flurries or perhaps a period of heavy snow in the area, depending upon the track of a potential weekend storm, according to AccuWeather.
The air will be cold enough for wet snow to fall in some locations this weekend into next week, including a portion of the daylight hours.
The intensity and duration of the snow from Sunday to Monday will depend on the track of a storm expected to form.
There is a great deal of uncertainty about a potential storm originating from the south and expected to move northward along the Atlantic Seaboard during Sunday and Monday, according to AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams.
"As more pieces of the puzzle are put in place, we will be able to make the call as to whether the storm will head out to sea or hug the coast," Abrams said.
Rain will fall along the Interstate-95 corridor with the potential for a heavy snowfall farther to the northwest if the storm tracks right along the coast, according to AccuWeather.
There will be a higher chance for heavy wet snow in system from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia, New York City and Boston if the storm travels just off the coast, AccuWeather said.
"Even in the absence of a storm along the coast, flurries could produce the first snowflakes in two weeks or more for parts of southern New England and the mid-Atlantic region," according to AccuWeather Lead Long-Range Meteorologist Paul Pastelok.
