A fairly quick moving nor'easter will dump some impressive snow amounts across the northeast US starting tonight (1/14) and lasting well into the day on Monday. A surface low is forecast to develop and strengthen just off the coast of the Carolinas and remain offshore as it tracks NNE.
Numerous Winter Weather advisories have been issued for the region as well.
High Precip. forecasts call for heavy snow in a band from New York City NNE up through Massachusetts and southern parts of Maine.
