Meanwhile, on the cold side of this developing storm system, accumulating snow is likely to fall in the interior, higher-elevation locations of the Mid-Atlantic/NE US extending from West Virginia, western Virginia/Maryland to western/central/northeastern PA to upstate New York and interior New England with many of these areas likely to receive 6+ inches by early tomorrow. These kinds of snow accumulations are certainly not all that common in this part of the nation during the second half of April, but it follows a pattern set last week. It is not out of the question that some ice pellets or even snow mix in at times in some of the northern and western suburbs along the I-95 corridor during this unfolding coastal storm. Just last week, snow fell all the way from the west coast of the Pacific Northwest to the Dakotas in an unusual late season blizzard. In fact, an inch of snow was recorded in Portland, Oregon which was the latest ever recorded and 20+ inches of snow fell in last week’s storm across portions of North Dakota.
The overall weather pattern that has featured the continuation of cold air outbreaks from Canada into the US in recent weeks does not look like it will end just yet. There are signs that additional cold air outbreaks are destined to reach the central and eastern states as late as during the end of April and perhaps even into early May. In fact, it is not out of the question that the same parts of the northeastern part of the nation that receive snowfall in this unfolding storm, may be threatened with snow again as April winds down and May gets underway.
