Snow and ice will spread into the interior Northeast early this week from a coastal storm that battered parts of the East Coast over the weekend.

The storm is currently centered well off the southeastern New England coast, and it will crawl northward off the Northeast Seaboard into early Tuesday.

Moisture from the storm will reach the Northeast Monday night, when it's expected to overspread air that is cold enough for wintry weather to occur in interior areas.

Colder air will wrap into the storm Monday night through the first half of Tuesday. That will allow snow and ice to affect areas from northeastern Pennsylvania and upstate New York into western and northern New England.


Monday Night's Forecast

Winter weather advisories have been issued by the National Weather Service for many of these areas. That means the snow and ice could create hazardous travel conditions.


Winter Weather Alerts

Snowfall totals won't be heavy, but areas from eastern New York into northern New England could see a few inches of accumulation through Tuesday. Ice accumulations will also be light, with most areas seeing less than a quarter-inch of accretion.

Coastal Flooding Lingers

Coastal flooding, high surf and beach erosion will continue to impact areas from the Virginia Tidewater to the coastal mid-Atlantic and southeastern New England Monday night.

Most of the coastal flooding in these areas should be minor, but a few spots could see moderate coastal flooding.

The storm produced significant coastal flooding over the weekend in North Carolina's Outer Banks.

Hazardous travel conditions prompted a closure of North Carolina Highway 12 in the Outer Banks, according to NCDOT. Crews were expected to reassess road conditions Monday and begin clearing any debris from the highway.

Water levels were up to 4 feet above normal Saturday night into early Sunday to the southeast of Great Neck in Carteret County, North Carolina.

Coastal flooding also inundated some roads in New Jersey Sunday morning. Portions of U.S. 30 were flooded in Absecon, Galloway Township and Pleasantville. New Jersey Route 147 was also flooded in parts of Wildwood and Rio Grande.
