The Northeast has been hit with an abnormal amount of snow for the beginning of the winter weather season, with winters storms Cleon, Dion and Electra all producing snow accumulations. Another storm, Falco, is going to hit the Northeast on Tuesday. Although it may cause some travel headaches, it will not create as much snow as the most recent storms. 

On Tuesday, a band of snow will spread northeastward from the Delaware Valley, the eastern Great Lakes and New York City in the morning to southern New England and the Hudson Valley by the afternoon, according to Weather.com

While snow will end in Philadelphia, Syracuse and Buffalo by the afternoon, there will still be snow-covered, slippery roads. The afternoon commute may be a bit worse in New York City, Hartford and Boston. 

Light snow will travel though the Great Lakes and the Ohio Valley, which could cause an inch or so to fall in parts of Michigan, northern Indiana and northern Ohio. Heavier accumulations could occur in lake-enhanced snowbands in Michigan and the Upper Peninsula.

Snow will have ended in New York City by early Tuesday evening, but low pressure will intensify off Cape Cod into the Gulf of Maine, which could bring heavier snow to Maine, parts of New Hampshire and west of Boston. 

The low temperatures will bring wind gusts of over 40 mph to the coast of New England, which could lead to blowing and drifting snow and reduced visibility. 

On Wednesday, the low will move into Canada, which could cause some snow to still persist in eastern Maine. There will be a wet morning commute on Wednesday morning in Boston and Hartford. 

Falco will not cause as much snow accumulation as the previous storms; over six inches of snow is expected over northern New England, from Maine to New Hampshire and possibly parts of Massachusetts. 

However, for most of the Northeast, such as New York City, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, four inches or less is expected. 

Some higher totals are possible in northeast Pennsylvania and southwest New York, and in New York north of Syracuse. Higher amounts can also be expected in the mountains of West Virginia and southwestern Pennsylvania. 

An inch is expected in the western Great Lakes and the Ohio Valley.
