This weekend weather was wild for the East Coast as two storms came together to unleash a significant amount of rain and snow mixed across the region.

Here is a look back at the rocky first weekend weather forecast of spring.

Storms Collide to Produce Powerful Weather Elements

It was a disappointing weekend for residents of the East Coast that were hoping to get outside for some springtime fun. A storm coming down from Canada and a different storm system moving up from the Gulf of Mexico merged together along the Atlantic Seaboard this past weekend, creating a powerful force of rain and snow mixed for a large swath of the nation.

The first storm system got its start in western Canada, eventually tracking into the north-central U.S. early last week and dumping snow across this part of the country.

This weekend weather maker went on to impact the Ohio Valley and beyond before landing in the Northeast where it met up with a rain storm that had started off along the Gulf Coast.

The weekend storm was a continuation of the active weather pattern that has impacted much of the Midwest, the Great Lakes, and the Northeast so far in March.
