WEATHER WATCH: Quiet, calm Monday; Winter storm on the way for Tuesday

Here we go again.

Tonight, a almost identical storm will approach, with a couple of aspects that make this storm more concerning.

The snow may change to ice pellets and freezing rain for a few hours before changing back to snow by Tuesday night as colder air arrives.

By Tuesday, the bitter cold tapers off steadily and will reach -1 C by the afternoon, feeling more like -9.

Cities along the Washington-Oregon border near Portland are within the zones that may get more than three feet of snow in total.

The township of North Dumfries has also issued a snow event, restricting parking on roads from Monday at 11 p.m. until Wednesday at noon. We are seeing different solutions to how this storm materializes.

There aren't any notable weather patterns today or tonight and the morning commute on Tuesday will also be dry.

School closure are also likely this week and stretches of interstates 29, 35, 80, 90 and 94 are expected to be hard and unsafe to travel on during the height of the storm. This one seems more questionable with how it is going to play out. Sleet and freezing rain will add an extra danger to your drive, with 0.1"-0.25" of ice accumulation possible throughout Central Pennsylvania.

Second, we'll have more wind than with last week's storm, so there could be more power outages.

It's all about the timing with this storm, and the exact time of the change to mixed precipitation will determine not only how much snow we see, but when the worst of the snow falls.

The week begins with a morning low of -13 C under cloudy skies with a 40 per cent chance of flurries. "This will result in a significant impact to the evening commute with snow covered roads and poor [visibility] in moderate/heavy snow".
