Wind chills are forecast to drop toward the single digits in parts of the Midwest and Northeast Wednesday.

The clipper system is expected to touch down in the Northeast by Tuesday morning, with snow mostly inland and rain showers from Boston south to Washington, D.C.

Most of the snow will fall in the Midwest and Northeast just north of major metropolitan areas. Some parts of inland Maine could get as much as 10 inches.

Behind the storm system, the coldest air of the season is forecast for the Northeast by Wednesday morning.
