Cold air will wrap around a developing storm and front sweeping eastward Tuesday into Wednesday, by way of gusty winds.
Gusts to 40 mph or a bit higher will cause blowing and drifting of the small amount snow that falls in portions of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin Tuesday.
AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will drop to zero in much of the same area Tuesday and Tuesday night.
The gusty wind and cold air will progress to the Appalachians Tuesday evening then to the Atlantic Coast later Tuesday night and Wednesday. Most gusts in this area will range between 30 and 40 mph.
While the magnitude of cold air is only about average for most winters, it will match temperatures and RealFeel of the recent Arctic blast around the Great Lakes and will actually be a bit colder for part of the northern Plains.
In some cases around the Great Lakes, the wind may be stronger than the last. With the event late last week, the core of the high winds roared over the Ohio and Tennessee valleys to the central Appalachians, mid-Atlantic coast and southern New England.
Along the Atlantic coast, this cold blast and winds will not be quite as harsh as this past weekend. It will still be painful to be outdoors for more than a few minutes unless properly dressed.
Another round of lake-effect snow will set up with the cold flow in the snowbelts for 24 to 36 hours in the wake of the storm from lakes Superior to Ontario. A few places can pick up 6 inches or more of new snow from the event.
While warmth tries to spring up over the central Plains later in the week, quick shots of cold air will frequent areas farther north over the Plains, Midwest and Northeast. Each one of these cold shots can be accompanied with some snow and flurries, even well away from the Great Lakes.
