With accumulating snow now taking place in two separate parts of the nation as we begin the second half of April, it can be appropriately said that the country as a whole has endured a very long winter. One of the earliest snowstorms on record swept through parts of the United States, from Montana to New Mexico on September 8 and 9, 2020, bringing record-early snow and record cold to much of that region. And now comes this mid-April snow in the Northeast US and also in the region from the central Rockies to the central Plains.
A deep upper-level low pressure system has spun its way to the Northeast US coastline and it has helped to generate a springtime nor’easter which is pounding away in much of New England with accumulating snow; especially, in those higher elevation locations from the Berkshires of Massachusetts to the Green and White Mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire. This system is a slow mover thanks in part to blocking over the northeastern part of Canada and this snow event will continue through the day in this part of the nation. It is actually quite windy and cold all the way to the Philly-to-New York City corridor and don’t be surprised to see a few ice pellets or snowflakes mixed in with rain showers that have formed in this region.
Meanwhile, out in the western and central US, snow is falling from the central Rockies including in the Denver metro region to western sections of the central Plains (e.g., western Nebraska). There can be more snow shower activity this weekend in this part of the nation and then more accumulating snow is possible in the Rockies by late Monday or Monday night as another surge of cold air arrives.
