AccuWeather reports a storm passing through the Northeast riding a tidal wave of frigid air will evolve into a blizzard over New England before departing during the Valentine’s Day weekend.

The worst of the storm will target the central and northern New England coast tonight into Sunday with wind-driven snow.

Areas far removed from the center of the storm in the mid-Atlantic – including central Pennsylvania – can experience life-threatening cold and the risk of power outages from high winds, AccuWeather reported.

The local forecast from the National Weather Service calls for show showers today, mainly after 8 a.m., that could be heavy at times and accumulate 1 to 2 inches. A south wind of 6 to 14 mph, with gusts as high as 22 mph, is predicted.

Tonight’s low is forecast at 1, with wind chill values as low as -20, and the snow showers are expected to continue, accumulating as much as another inch.

Bands of snow

Prior to the storm hitting New England, the leading edge of a blast of arctic air will trigger one or more bands of heavy snow that will sweep southeastward from the Great Lakes to the mid-Atlantic coast today.

“I am extremely pleased to report that this threat was averted,” Asst. Commissioner Brian Brennan told reporters late Friday.

The female suspect, a 23-year-old woman from Geneva, Illinois, was arrested at Halifax’s airport. She confessed to the plot and prewrote a number of pronouncements to be tweeted after her death, The Associated Press reported.

The 19-year-old male suspect shot himself to death after police were tipped off about the plot and surrounded his home in Timberlea at about 1.20 a.m. local time (12.20 a.m. ET) Friday.

Two other men, aged 20 and 17, were also involved but their role isn’t yet clear, police said.

Brennan said the exact motive for the planned killing was unclear but it was “not culturally based.”
