New York’s first March commute may end up being one of its worst of the season as another winter storm threatens to start the work week with snow, sleet and rain throughout the U.S. Northeast.
Snow will start falling in New York City during the morning rush and as much as 3 inches (7.6 centimeters) may be on the ground by the time the storm ends later in the day.
A winter storm sweeping across the U.S. will pick up strength in the Atlantic and dump snow tomorrow on New York, Boston and the Northeast.
Commuters in New York will probably see the worst of a storm that will strike at the beginning of the workweek, spreading snow, sleet and ice from Boston to Washington, forecasters said.
Temperatures in Washington and New York dropped as much as 35 degrees as a cold front that brought snow to Chicago this week swept eastward with gusty winds grounding flights.
The eastern, central and southern U.S., close to half of the nation, faces another day or two of extreme heat and severe weather that may further disrupt power to homes and businesses, meteorologists said today.
Record high temperatures are forecast this weekend for the U.S. Northeast from Washington to the New York area.
"The closest to land it's going to get in the U.S. is when it passes by Cape Cod tonight."
