Ayyeee… What’s Goodie Everyone. So I got some tea for my folks in New York City and surrounding areas. This tea involves weather.
Winter storm warnings are in place for a large part of the Eastern United States on Sunday, from North Carolina to New York, with as much as two feet of snow and dangerous travel conditions expected in some places into Tuesday, according to forecasters.
The heaviest snow will fall in northeastern Pennsylvania and northwestern New Jersey, according to Bob Oravec, a lead forecaster with the National Weather Service who is based in Baltimore. The storm brought six feet of snow and heavy rain to California last week before moving through the Midwest, leaving about eight inches of snow in Chicago, according to the national weather service.
Snow is expected in major metropolitan areas, from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia, New York City and Boston, as well inland across northeastern Pennsylvania, upstate New York and most of New England, Oravec said. Heavy snow was expected to develop from Pennsylvania to Massachusetts on Sunday evening into Monday, with 18 to 24 inches of snow possible in some areas, before continuing through Maine on Tuesday.
A warning issued for the Washington metropolitan area and Baltimore predicted up to nine inches of snow in some places. The expected snowfall would break a 709 day streak during which no more than an inch of snow was recorded at Ronald Reagan National Airport, Oravec said. In Pennsylvania, forecasters said travel might be impossible and predicted 11 to 15 inches of snow in places. Some areas in central, northern and northwestern New Jersey and southeastern Pennsylvania might receive up to 18 inches of snow, with winds of up to 35 miles per hour.
