A map created by weather forecaster Accuweather shows rain in Tennessee, North Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, D.C., and parts of southern New Jersey and southern Pennsylvania on Monday.

Thunderstorms are forecasted on Monday for Georgia, South Carolina, and parts of northern Florida. Parts of North Carolina and Tennessee may also experience thunderstorms on Monday.

There may also be showers in parts of Louisiana, particularly New Orleans, and most of Mississippi, excluding parts of the southwest region of the state on Monday.

Parts of Alabama may experience showers, rain, and thunderstorms on Monday.

There is a chance of thunderstorms or a mixture of rain and snow in southern Ohio and southern Indiana on Monday. Southern Illinois and parts of western Kentucky may also see rain mixed with snow.

More Snow to Come

The northeastern U.S. and parts of New England may experience also snowfall going into Monday night.

“The way the cold air will invade the storm it appears the best bet for a heavy snowfall will be from northern Pennsylvania to southeastern upstate New York, and southern and central New England, especially from northeastern Pennsylvania on to the east from Monday night to Tuesday evening,” AccuWeather Chief On-Air Meteorologist Bernie Rayno said on the AccuWeather Network on Friday.

New York City is also expected to see snow. The five boroughs and central Long Island, New York, may get several inches of snow if there is heavy snowfall for several hours on Tuesday.

Residents in the northern and western suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, may get a few inches of snow. New England cities like Boston, Massachusetts, and Hartford, Connecticut, will also likely get snow, enough to experience slippery travel conditions.

Drivers along the Interstate-95 corridor in the mid-Atlantic may experience rain, fog, and low clouds late Monday into Tuesday morning. Additionally, if you a driving west from New York City on Interstate 80 or traveling north on New York State Thruway, you will encounter heavy snow.

Flight delays and cancellations may also occur as the snowstorm hits Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia this upcoming week.
