A rare late-season Nor’easter will continue to bring gusty winds, heavy snow, heavy rain, coastal flooding, and rough seas to the Northeast U.S. into Tuesday night, April 19, 2022. Chilly temperatures for Mid-April are expected to stick around in the East through mid-week.
Much of the eastern U.S. will remain mired within an abnormally chilly air-mass for mid-April through mid-week, NWS forecaster Mullinax said, adding that a handful of daily record cold high and low temperatures are forecast in parts of the Midwest, Great Lakes, and Northeast today.1
In addition to the cold, a rare late-season Nor’easter will continue to produce periods of heavy snow in parts of the interior Northeast this morning along with gusty winds.
By the time the snow winds down as the Nor’easter tracks farther north, snow accumulations totaling between 15 to 30 cm (6 to 12 inches) are expected from northern Pennsylvania on north into the Adirondacks.
Some of the heaviest accumulations seen over the past 24 hours have been across the higher elevations of western Maryland, northwest Virginia, and northern West Virginia, with places like Cumberland, Hagerstown, and Frostburg, MD, recording from 7 to 15 cm (3 to 6 inches) since 17:30 LT on April 18.2
The system will continue to track north into portions of Upstate New York and the Interior New England tonight, where up to 30 cm (1 foot) of snow could fall in some higher-elevation areas.
Some mountain areas could see up to 45 cm (18 inches) of snow by Tuesday, especially as lake-effect snow sets up behind the system.
