Easter weekend storm to spread wintry mix from Midwest to Northeast

New York snow

The first storm of the holiday weekend moved through the upper Midwest on Saturday, bringing as much as a foot of snow in northern Minnesota.

Snow, some of it heavy, was in the forecast for Easter Sunday into Easter Monday in parts of West Virginia.

Some of that moisture could then reach the interior Northeast by Sunday night or Monday, but details are hard to pinpoint this far out. At this time, it appears the snow will come down fairly heavily in a short period of time overnight.

Nothing of that scope is anticipated this spring, but the snow may be enough to create havoc for Easter travel plans.

The result of this weather pattern will be occasional rounds of snow in those regions Thursday through Sunday, perhaps even into Monday, in the interior Northeast and upper Midwest.

The weather service says conditions are expected to worsen by sunrise as the heavy, wet snow continues to fall.

The latest downpour means the Big Apple has now received nearly 41-inches of snow during the 2017-18 winter season - almost 15-inches more than the yearly average.

A sloppy, snowy morning caused problems for the Monday morning commute, including a full closure of the northbound New Jersey Turnpike.

Winter weather advisory in effect from 4 a.m.to 1 p.m. Saturday.

The high temperature Saturday may top out at 24 degrees, about 20 degrees colder than normal for this time of year.

According to News 12 meteorologists, 5.5 inches of snow fell in Parkchester, breaking a previous record set in 2003 when 4 inches of snow fell on April 2.

Behind the system, winter-like air is moving in. Highs this afternoon only topping out in the low 30s, while wind chill values are expected to be in the single digits to the teens.

Wind gust forecast at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 31, 2018. The extended forecast calls for slight chances of snow almost daily into next week with highs in the mid-30s and overnight lows ranging from 6 to 12 degrees.

Another storm is expected to develop in the central US late Monday.

It's the heavy snow that will get us into trouble.
