A complex storm system over the southeastern states early this 
morning will reform and become a deep storm system off the mid 
Atlantic coast this afternoon. The storm will be slow to move 
tonight and early Tuesday. The storm should finally pull away from 
the area by Tuesday evening. 

This storm system will bring periods of rain and gusty winds to the 
area today. Temperatures will start off mild but will fall this 
afternoon, as the storm deepens. The rain will likely mix with and 
change to snow across the northern and western mountains this 
afternoon. Snow and rain will continue tonight and into at least 
early Tuesday, before tapering off late. 

Temperatures will fall to near or just below freezing across the 
higher elevations by sunrise Tuesday morning. There is the potential 
for heavy wet snow across the northeastern part of the state. Highs 
on Tuesday will range from the mid to upper 30s across the 
mountains, to the low to mid 40s across the southwest and southeast 
portions of the Keystone state.
