A line of strong-to-severe storms likely Tuesday evening
Near the front, elevated thunderstorms will develop overnight, bringing the potential of large hail and heavy rain. Severe weather possible as a cold front moves across the Baton Rouge area, Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

The bulk of the snow should fall between midnight and 3 a.m., said Trent Davis, meteorologist in Mount Holly, New Jersey.

On Sunday, accumulations should only be a couple of inches, mainly on grassy surfaces from Nebraska to Pennsylvania.

Most of the snow will likely be gone by late Monday or Tuesday. The storm was a very progressive system, which means it moves fast, rocketing through the city, dubbing enough snow to create for a nuisance through the morning commute.

Temperatures will remain below normal through the weekend with more chances of precipitation.

The cooler weather will continue into Tuesday, when a high of 48 degrees is forecast, but pick up Wednesday as highs climb to 63 degrees.
