PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A storm is expected to drop several inches of snow on the East Coast before rain and warmer temperatures give residents a reprieve from shoveling and shivering.
The National Weather service predicts that many East Coast states will see 3 to 6 inches of snow Tuesday after a storm moves in overnight from the Great Lakes and through the Mid-Atlantic. The accumulation could complicate morning and late afternoon commutes. There also could be rain, sleet or a snow-rain mixture.
Meteorologist John Cristantello calls the storm a "short duration event" that will be followed by warmer temperatures for the remainder of the week.
Last Wednesday, snow, sleet and ice bombarded the Southeast and brought its ferocity into the East Coast a day later.
Recent storms have been blamed for 25 deaths.
