Newly named Winter Storm Quo will make its way across the Midwest on Tuesday, bringing snow and ice to parts of the Midwest, and rain and thunderstorms to the Tennessee Valley region. Quo will continue to bring precipitation to the eastern United States through Wednesday as it moves to the Northeast, The Weather Channel reports.
On Tuesday, the Great Lakes region should see some snow, with temperatures remaining in the mid- to high-20s. The northern parts of Ohio and Indiana, as well as central Illinois, may see ice and icy rain, with the areas to the south getting rain and thunderstorms.
More thunderstorms are expected to plague the South on Tuesday, with areas of eastern Texas to Mississippi, and north into Tennessee and Kentucky, having the greatest potential for severe weather, according to Weather Underground.
Thunderstorms will move across the Southeast and into northern Florida, with tornadoes possible in the stretch of land from northeastern Texas and southeastern Oklahoma through northern Louisiana and southern Arkansas, and into Mississippi and Alabama. This stretch will remain at the greatest risk for tornadoes throughout March.
Into Tuesday night, Winter Storm Quo will work its way toward the East Coast, bringing icy rain to the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys - including Kentucky, West Virginia, Ohio and western Virginia - and north to upstate New York, Vermont and New Hampshire.
The mid-Atlantic is expected to see temperatures remain in the 40s and will get mostly rain. The region may experience some thunderstorms into Wednesday, but nothing severe is expected.
A few inches of snow may fall on northwestern Pennsylvania into northern New York and New England, reported AccuWeather. Some areas may see up to a foot, but most areas along Interstates 79, 80, 81 and 90 are expected to get between 1 and 3 inches.
Wednesday will see the continuation of a wintry mix of precipitation in New England and possible snowfall in the Appalachians. Regions near the Great Lakes and the Canadian border will see the highest chance of snow, with potential for more than 6 inches. The East Coast's temperatures will stay in the high 40s and low 50s, preventing snowfall but bringing rain through Wednesday.
