Cold Weather to Invade Northeast


AccuWeather reports, “Cold, harsh winds, snow and possible power outages to sweep across northeastern United States into Monday.”

At present, much of the area is warmer than normal, but starting late Saturday, a cold front will sweep through the region. This cold front will signal the beginning of a rapid cooling trend forecast to head toward the East Coast thereafter.

AccuWeather continues with this forecast for winds with the frontal passage:

Wind gusts frequented 40-50 mph from the central Great Lakes to the central Appalachians and mid-Atlantic coast on Sunday before expanding to New England by Sunday night.

“At least six inches of wet snow will accumulate on grassy areas over the ridges into Monday, mainly over the Adirondack, Green and White mountains,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson said. Up to a few inches of snow also fell on the Alleghenies from West Virginia to western Pennsylvania.

As seen in the graphic at the top of this story, the National Weather Service in Binghamton, NY expects sharp downtowns in temperature by Monday.
