NYC Faces Its Biggest April Snowstorm Since 2003

  • Weather Authority: Another winter storm ahead

- A heavy snowfall blanketed much of Minnesota Friday night into Saturday morning, ranging from just a few inches in the metro to more than 10 inches in some parts of the state.

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

It was also the seventh most on record since records began in 1869, and was only two inches away from making the top five.

A Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible, according to the National Weather Service. The next winter storm is on the way and there's a chance for some communities to get over 6 inches of snow.

As the previous record breaking snow melts, North Iowa looks to get a fresh snow Tuesday.

Driving conditions are now normal, but drivers are urged to use caution as snow develops.




By 10am, several major airports in the city were coated in several inches of snow - Bridgeport 5.7-inches; LaGuardia-5.5 inches; Newark 5-inches and JFK 3.7-inches. Brainerd and Baxter are right on the edge of the snowfall cutoff between 4-6 inches to the south for most of Todd, Morrison and Mille Lacs counties and the 6-8 inch prediction for most of Cass, Crow Wing and Aitkin counties.

"Upwards of 10" of snow hit Montana on Monday.

The snow should mostly end Saturday morning in northern Minnesota, about 8 a.m in the Twin Ports, and will be out of Northwestern Wisconsin before noon. Temperatures on Thursday and Friday in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. were in the 70s - and on Monday we are forecasting it to feel almost 40 to 50 degrees colder. Snow in April is not out of the question. This March, the highest snow depth was 17 inches.

An early spring snow is creating some slick travel conditions in Pennsylvania.

The more concerning part of the forecast is that there is no sign of long-term relief for the Midwest and Northeast.
