No, no, that's not an April Fool's joke. We are only the messenger. This is what the meteorologists of the National Weather Service say.
Despite what you might think, winter is not over yet. "Incoming snow" is about to strike when your relatives get in their cars to drive home on Easter.
In fact, the NWS has even published a "dangerous weather forecasts for the whole state" with the statement "widespread snow". The late Sunday night until Monday morning could lead to dangerous trips for the morning commute.
The accumulation of snow can not exceed 100 miles, so a 50-mile shift in the storm section could mean the difference between several "snow, rain, or dry weather," AccuWeather said.
Although snow sticks to grassy areas along the entire strip, most of the snow falling during daytime melts on paved and concrete surfaces due to the April sunshine.
"While snow accumulates in winter, it is usually difficult in spring to come when the temperatures go up, snow falling overnight is easier on roads and sidewalks. " According to AccuWeather meteorologist Faith Eherts.
"However, roads and sidewalks can still be soggy and slippery for a time during the day when the snow falls hard and the effect of the strong sun can be overcome," said AccuWeather senior meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski
Slippery travel and snow-covered roads will be a problem from the Ohio Valley to New Jersey, where most of the snow should fall on Sunday night, according to AccuWeather. Motorists will not be the only ones affected.
"Flights into and out of Indianapolis; Washington, DC; and Baltimore; and Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Allentown and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, delays and cancellations could occur Sunday night through Monday morning," Eherts
Higher traffic is expected on this Easter weekend, so those on the way to the storm should not have to spend extra time on AccuWeather to reach their goals and prepare for unfavorable, rapidly changing weather conditions. Monday morning could be filled with delays, especially along the Interstate 95 corridor from Baltimore through Philadelphia and possibly as far north as New York City.
