Along the shore, winds of 50–80 mph are forecast.
- The highest elevations will be covered in heavy snow this spring.
- Tornadoes and severe thunderstorms are probable in certain locations.
April 21 – On Saturday, meteorologists warned that a low pressure system originating in the Gulf of Mexico would soon travel over the eastern United States, bringing with it the possibility of heavy rains and snow that might cause damage to infrastructure and the cancellation of flights.
Beginning on Sunday, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. can expect heavy rain brought on by the Nor’easter storm, with totals of two to four inches (5 to 10 cm) possible throughout the Mid-Atlantic Coast.
According to Michael Eckert, senior branch forecaster at the National Weather Service in Camp Springs, Maryland, “it’s going to be a very, very intense Nor’easter.”
The Coast can Anticipate Winds of 30-50 mph (48-80 kph).
Sunday’s “weather will be deteriorating over the day,” Eckert warned.
As the rain changes to snow on Sunday night, it will cover the western regions of New York State, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. This is because cold air will be flowing in from the inland side of the weather system.
The Weather Service Predicted up to 12 inches (30 cm) of Snow in the Mountains.
That might cause tree branches or even whole trees to fall. Therefore, broken power lines and widespread disruptions are expected, according to forecasters.
Since the air in the spring is warmer than it is in the winter, Eckert predicts that the storm will not be as violent as it would have been if it had occurred in January.
However, according to Weather Service employee Eckert of the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center, flights in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia may be delayed on Monday because of the storm.
The National Weather Service reported a couple minor tornadoes in western Minnesota on Saturday. According to Bryon Paulson, a meteorologist with the Weather Service, no one was hurt, but a flower store and some barns near the town of Milan were destroyed.

It Rained, there was hail the Size of Nickels, there were Tiny Tornadoes, and it Even Snowed, he Added.
Nearly 6 inches (15 cm) of snow fell on the northeast Minnesota town of Chisholm a week after it received a foot (30 cm) of snow. He said that happened after an unusually warm winter with little snow.
Though a flood watch had been lifted for the Sunshine State, meteorologist Barry Baxter of the Weather Service warned that severe thunderstorms with 60 mph (97 kph) winds and the possibility of tornadoes were on the way for Florida that night.
Eckert predicts Florida may see some rain and thundershowers later on Sunday, albeit nothing like the deluge the state received on Saturday.
Alan Reppert, a meteorologist for the private company AccuWeather.com, said that some cities in the Northeast saw showers on Saturday, with the more severe storm arriving on Sunday. (Alex Dobuzinskis reported; Andrew Stern contributed; Todd Eastham edited)
