The sixth winter storm of the season is making its way into the Northeast.  Winter Storm Falco is expected to dump a band of snow from the Delaware Valley, through New York City, and into the Eastern Great Lakes, moving north towards New England and the Hudson Valley this afternoon.

As of 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time, 550 flights had been canceled in the U.S., with over 2,770 delayed according to Flightstats, a flight tracking service.  However, this storm is likely to be less severe than the previous one, Electra, which caused over 1,100 cancellations and the delay of over 5,400 flights in one day.

Parts of Michigan, northern Indiana, and northern Ohio could see up to an inch of snow, though heavy accumulations in the Midwest are unlikely Tuesday.

Overnight and into Wednesday, snow accumulation in northern New England, including Maine, New Hampshire, and parts of Massachusetts, could likely reach over 6”, with areas of southern Maine expected to receive as much as a foot.

Other cities in the Northeast, including New York, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh, are likely to see less than 4”, with less than one inch expected in the Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. area.
