What weather and road issues should I be aware of in my drive from Birmingham to Boston next Saturday, and what sights should I see?

I've done the Birmingham to DC leg a few times. I've also done DC to New York, but never this time of year.
Day 1, Saturday: Birmingham to DC (yes, long day)
Day 2, Sunday: DC to Boston
A couple of years ago we drove through northern New Mexico during December and only later (once we hit a snow storm) did we realize that was a stupid idea. I don't want to experience an "oh crap" moment again.
My only fear is hitting icy or snowy roads, and my only goal is to make the most of my drive. I lived in Seattle for 4 years and in my trips through the pass learned to cope with ice/snow, though I hate it with a passion.
What should I be aware of and for which sights should I stop and see?
