Snow and biting winds from two storms that could merge will pound the Northeast over the weekend for another delivery of heavy snowfall to end the year.

The pattern is similar to the storms that hit on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, AccuWeather reported.

First, forecasters say Georgia and the Carolinas will be affected on Thursday with ice to coastal areas from one storm that eventually moves northward, and parts of the Midwest will be impacted by another storm moving eastward.

“As the storms merge, winds will kick up from Saturday to Sunday,” said AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams. He noted that temperatures “will plummet to painfully low levels.”

The amount of snowfall depends on the speed of the storms to help them merge. Only an inch of snow may occur if the storms don’t merge quickly, but warm waters over the nearby Atlantic could bring stormy weather closer to the coast.

Snow could spread to the central Appalachians on Friday night while the mid-Atlantic and New England coasts will get hit on Saturday.

An early two-storm merge might provide moderate snow across a portion of New England and into southeastern New York state.

Southeastern New England could get hit with a few inches of snow by Saturday afternoon or evening. A Christmas snow may come late to Cape Cod, Massachusetts, which did not experience the Christmas Day snow. New York City and Philadelphia also could see snow on Saturday.

Chicago and the Great Lakes region could get one to three inches of snow as the storm sweeps across the Midwest before heading east, according to Business Insider. The Northeast and the Midwest may experience temperatures below average during the weekend and into New Year’s Day.
