The final week of 2017 will end with a bang as we’re watching several storms approaching as well as near-record cold for portions of the country this coming week. Here’s four things we’re watching:

Christmas Snow:

Up to eight inches of snow in total will fall in portions of New England, where millions of people in the Northeast wake up to a white Christmas morning. Along the I-95 corridor, it will be a mostly rain event, but rain will likely change to snow from New York City through Boston.

Active Northwest:

Several rounds of storms will slam into the Northwest, bringing rain to the coast and snow to much of the intermountain West throughout much of this week.

We’ll have several stories discussing each storm through the week.

Extreme Cold:

A blast of cold air will invade the Eastern two-thirds of the U.S. (except for Florida) this week and will likely continue into the new year. Widespread low temperatures in the single-digits and below zero are expected for much of the Northern Tier.

We’ll have a full story on the cold this Tuesday.

Blockbuster Winter Storm:

You may have heard about the potential for a major winter storm for the Northeast around New Year’s Eve. There are many uncertainties in regards to this potential storm that we’ll be discussing throughout the week.
