Snow forecast for northeastern United States on Christmas Day

Only a light amount of snow seems likely from parts of western Virginia and central Maryland to central and southeastern Pennsylvania, where snowfall will end by daybreak Christmas morning.

A storm from the Midwest and a storm along the Atlantic coast are forecast to converge on the northeastern United States in time for Christmas.

Snow will spread into the central Appalachians later Sunday evening, then northeastward across New York state, northern New Jersey and much of New England later Sunday night into Christmas morning.
