NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — As many Tennessee residents get ready to travel for the holiday week, News 2 has a rundown of weather throughout the country.

Coastal cities like Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. are not affected by recent snowfall; however, the snow is concentrated inland in upstate New York, northern New England, and parts of Pennsylvania.

As we look to the future, the snow is expected to still be a problem for anyone traveling to those areas Monday night or Tuesday morning.


The snow will taper off during the day on Tuesday.

Of course, Wednesday is the big travel day for most people. The next weather system Tuesday evening will push rain our way and snow into the Dakotas to Minneapolis.

As we fast forward to Wednesday, we see rain in the mid-south and the Ohio Valley with snow from Minneapolis, to north of Chicago, and maybe even into Detroit later in the day.

The East Coast is expected to be dry, except for a few scattered showers in Florida.

But what if you are traveling out west?

We expect snow in the higher elevations outside of Salt Lake City through parts of Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana.

Another big trouble spot may be the Pacific Northwest from Seattle to Portland and far northern California with rain on the coast and snow in the higher elevations.
