Adjust Comment Print

A quick April snow storm arrived Monday morning and led to school closures and a slow commute.

While the rain won't slow you down much on Tuesday (watch out for wet roads and reduced visibility, however), be ready for slushy roads early Wednesday, which may make you drive slower.

The last time NY got more than 4 inches of snow in April was 2003, according to a National Weather Service tweet.

Winter weather advisories have also been posted for the Philadelphia and NY metro areas for Monday morning.

The snow is coming down fast and hard on much of the region with projected accumulation totals of 3 to 6 inches expected this morning. Numerous area's highways are snow or slush covered, and traffic is slow moving.

The Mid-Ohio Valley could see up to an inch of snow.

It appears that China's "Heavenly Palace" or Tiangong-1 space station may want its last big show to be taken seriously. Reports to the contrary, it said Monday, were because "foreign media envy China's space programme".

However Charbonneau says motorists can expect winter-like conditions to continue on the Coquihalla Highway with snow expected to start up again tonight. That rain is out ahead of a warm front that breaks through Wednesday morning, allowing for a mild and breezy day.

"I definitely think we have a few more shots of snow", said Sean Rowland, a meteorologist at the WeatherWorks forecasting company in Hackettstown.

The Monday-morning commute will likely be treacherous from Washington, D.C., to Hartford, including NY and Philadelphia.
