A winter storm, which has already dumped record snowfall in the nation’s midsection, swept into the Northeast today, where it is expected to bring up to two feet of snow and a new round of travel headaches.
“The heaviest snow will fall from western New York through the Adirondacks into Vermont, New Hampshire and northern Maine,” Weather Channel meteorologist Michael Palmer told NBC News.
Coudersport, Pa., and Walworth, N.Y, each got socked with 15 inches (38 cm) of snow, and there was about a foot (30½ cm) on the ground in Smith Crossroads, W.V.; Frostburg, Md., Woodford, Vt.; and Port Huron, Mich., the National Weather Service reported.
Look at a map! A foot to 15 inches of snow from Pennsylvania to West Virginia to Maryland to Vermont to Michigan to New York. That is a huge area!
How’s that global warmin’ workin’ for ya, guys?
It will be colder than normal across most of the U.S. as arctic air dominates.
