The snow refused to call it quits Monday morning as it taunted long-suffering New Yorkers with another potentially messy commute. The snow in NYC is expected to wrap up its business by 10 a.m. and melt completely by the afternoon.
The heaviest snow, 8 to 12 inches, is expected to fall mostly after midnight roughly along a line from Brainerd through Hinckley and Hayward east toward the Upper Peninsula.
At one point during Monday morning, the airport reported a snowfall rate of 2 inches per hour. But Moore said high winds could continue to blow snow back onto plowed roads and reduce visibility throughout the day.
For Western Allegany, Mineral and Grant Counties... At a minimum, the roads will be slow, but in areas where more than 4 inches of snow falls, it may become hard to travel. Totals of 2 to 4 inches are possible near Philadelphia and NY, with the highest totals outside the major cities and on grassy surfaces.
Winter weather watches, warnings and advisories extended almost coast-to-coast over the northern tier on Monday, covering over 40 million people, including in the northeast Midwest, and across the Northern Plains. Now another storm is developing in the Central Plains on Sunday and rapidly moving to the east - with snow likely from Nebraska to OH on Easter Sunday.
Winter to spring: Drop dead.
Heavy snow and light freezing drizzle and ice accumulations are expected.
From Pennsylvania to coastal southern New England, snow accumulation could reach between two to six inches. The NWS' snowfall forecast shows up to 15 inches of snow may drop in MI.
The storm came as a surprise to many as it was placed in the forecast late on Friday morning, right as people were headed out for Easter and Passover weekend activities.
