BOUT OF DANGEROUS WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS. SHALLOW ARCTIC AIR

BY EARLY WEDNESDAY...SLEET AND FREEZING RAIN WILL BE MOVING INTO
NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE NORTHEAST BUT SHOULD NOT BE AS SEVERE AS
THE ICING FOUND OVER THE PLAINS AND PORTIONS OF THE MIDWEST. AS
THIS BATCH OF PRECIPITATION ENDS ON WEDNESDAY...A NEW AREA OF
FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET MAY AGAIN REDEVELOP OVER THE SOUTHERN
PLAINS AS THE NEWEST STORM SYSTEM BEGINS TO FORM ALONG THE
TRAILING EDGE OF A COLD FRONT OVER THE GULF COAST AND TENNESSEE
VALLEY.  THIS SYSTEM MAY THEN SPREAD MORE FREEZING RAIN...SLEET
AND SNOW TO THE OHIO VALLEY AND THEN TO THE NORTHEAST ON
THURSDAY...WITH SIGNIFICANT SNOWS POSSIBLE FOR PORTIONS OF NEW
YORK AND SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND.

THE NEXT STORM SUMMARY WILL BE ISSUED BY THE HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL
