More wintry weather coming

ICE, ICE BABY: A tree is encrusted in ice early Sunday, Dec.17, 2013, in Langhorne, Pa. , after an overnight storm. Clean-up continued after a winter storm that dropped several inches of snow and created tricky travel conditions. The storm system dropped a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain across the region Saturday. But the precipitation eventually tuned into a heavy rain that soaked the region overnight and washed away most of the snow and slush. Photo: Associated Press/Mel Evans

A low pressure system is expected to develop along the coast of New Jersey on Tuesday, while the remainder of the country will stay relatively calm.

A low pressure system is expected to deepen as it moves across the Northeast on Tuesday. This system will be located along the coast of New Jersey, which is expected to usher moderate to heavy snow across New England.

Just to the south of this system, a cold frontal boundary will extend from the Tennessee Valley to the central Appalachians. This system will push widespread light snow across parts of the Ohio Valley and the Appalachians, while heavy snow will be possible along the western slopes of the Appalachians. The Southeast will stay relatively calm on Tuesday, although a lingering frontal boundary just south of the coast of Florida will trigger showers and thunderstorms along the southern portion of the state.

In the upper Midwest, a low pressure system will initiate light snow showers across parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin. The central and southern Plains will stay clear of precipitation due to a high pressure system over the region.

A cold front will approach the Pacific Northwest on Tuesday, as showers are expected to move across western Washington and northwestern Oregon. Snow is also forecast for the Cascades and the northern Rockies. The Southwest will stay clear of wet weather as a ridge of high pressure builds over southern California.

MONDAY’S WEATHER EXTREMES:

Highest temperature: 89 San Gabriel, Calif.
Lowest temperature: -26 Manitowish Waters, Wis.
Lowest wind chill: -61 Mt. Washington, N.H.
Highest precipitation: 1.60 inches Rolla, N.D.
