A coastal low continues to produce rain and snow in the northeast and northern Mid Atlantic states as it moves close to the northeast coast. Significant snowfall is likely for parts of New England with 5-9 inches possible in lower elevations and 9-15 in higher elevations with the greatest chances coming in eastern NY, VT, and western parts of ME, NH, and MA.

The first system moves out of the Rockies today ans into the Plains tonight then the Midwest and Lower Mississippi River valley over the weekend producing snows in the southern Rockies and rain and a few storms further east. The second system which is a cold front heads south from Canada affecting the northern tier of the country from the northern Rockies eastward to northern New England with a few snow showers or mixed precipitation on Sunday and Sunday night.
