A coastal storm will track northeast into New England today with snow redeveloping across the region into this afternoon, but impacts on main roadways will be limited thanks to the strong March sun angle, so additional accumulations will be limited to colder surfaces. The weather will remain unsettled and chilly in the wake of the storm as an upper level low lingers over the northeastern states with an abundance of clouds and scattered flurries and snow showers for the remainder of the workweek.
- A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect for the entire region through 8 p.m. this evening.
