Over a million kids across the country will not be able to go to school on Tuesday because of a severe winter storm that has brought harsh wind chills, record-setting low temperatures, unprecedented snowfall in some Southern areas, and dangerous ice conditions.

Snow from north to south

A few spots of snow have turned into icy places along Interstate 95. It looks like snow and ice will continue to affect some parts of New England as the evening goes on.

From what we can tell, the weather system will keep going north. The snow should stop in New York City around 5 p.m. ET and in Boston by 8 p.m. ET. Watch out for a thin layer of ice in these places where freezing rain or drizzle has fallen. Temperatures are slowly rising back up to the freezing point.

It could snow up to 6 inches in Washington, D.C., and Baltimore. From New York City to Boston, it could snow anywhere from 1 to 4 inches. It’s even possible for a foot of snow to fall in some parts of Maine.

The power system has been strained by the harsh cold in the area, which has made things even more difficult.
