Major Winter Storm Possible Late Week

Track remains uncertain

Special Storm Update

First Alert Meteorologist Tyler Jankoski provides an update on the late week storm threat. (Published Monday, Jan. 18, 2016)

First Alert meteorologists are tracking the potential for the season's first major winter storm and a wind advisory is in effect for parts of the state on Monday.

One thing is for sure: the storm will have a large amount of moisture to work with.

The major question? The very track of the storm – there appears to be two possibilities.

One outcome has a major storm off the coast of Atlantic City, which would whallop the region with wind and snow.

This is a classic track, inside the "benchmark" of 40 degrees north, 70 degrees west. At least several inches of snow would fall and it certainly would be plowable in this case.

The second outcome is a track farther offshore, with less of an impact in New England but still some snow to the south. A number indications point in this direction, but it's too early to latch onto either outcome.

The odds of at least some snow and wind are greater than 50/50.
