Snow will start late Tuesday, pelting NY commuters with 5 to 11 inches (13 to 28 centimeters) by the time the storm ends on Thursday, according to a winter storm watch from the National Weather Service.

A winter weather advisory is possible, forecasters said. After two inches have fallen, crews will be able to begin to push snow and/or continuously treat affected areas. But don't get too hopeful, snow-haters: Forecasters note there is a 90 percent chance for higher snowfall totals than the estimates on the lower-end prediction map.

The current forecast calls 4-6 inches across most of Northern Virginia, with 3-4 inches in Fredericksburg.

NAM model simulated radar forecast for the peak of storm #2, Wednesday afternoon. "It's probably going to be sometime well into April" before springlike weather arrives.

More of the same - wet and cold conditions - is expected Wednesday before the precipitation wanes Wednesday evening. There's a chance for some light rain or snow toward the evening. But just how much snow will fall and accumulate, and exactly who gets hit the hardest?

The US Transportation Department "is looking into the circumstances" of the dog's death, an agency spokeswoman said Wednesday. Turbulence prevented the family from checking on the dog, ABC News reported .

However, strong winds are possible, along the coast from New England to the mid-Atlantic coast, with the possibility of flooding in some areas. New snow and sleet accumulation of 6 to 10 inches possible.

The snow's weight will likely mean more trees and power lines falling, causing outages throughout the area, Simpson said.

This will provide a quick break in the action on Tuesday.

The weather service says the first coastal storm will deliver a wintry mix from the south Tuesday morning and could affect travel during the day.
