Winter Weather Still Hanging On Across Midwest and Northeast

4 months ago

The official start to the astronomical spring is quickly approaching but winter is going to refuse to let go across much of the Midwest and the Northeast. Here is a look at the chilly forecast to start the new work week.

Influx of Cold Air Will Create Another Chance of Snow for Midwest and Northeast

A new surge of cold air will translate to the chance of snow squalls and flurries throughout some areas of the Northeast and the Midwest. The unseasonably cool weather may also raise the risk of a hard freeze for the southern tier of the U.S. This last gasp of winter will be quite the surprise for parts of the country that saw a relatively mild season.

The cold snap is forecast to take root on Sunday and linger through Wednesday, meaning that the first day of spring on March 19 could be a chilly affair. The spring equinox of 2024 will take place at 11:06 pm on Tuesday.

Temperatures have trended well above normal since the first official day of winter on December 21. For instance, New York City saw average readings hit 5.2 degrees above normal during his time period. It was a whopping 11.2 degrees warmer this winter in Minneapolis while Chicago saw readings trend 7.6 degrees over the average.
