April storm drops wet, heavy snow on NY and Northeast

According to local meteorologists, the last time the NYC saw April snow showers was in 2006 although it was less than an inch (about 2.5 cm).

By 10 a.m., 5.5 inches had accumulated in Central Park, the most during April since 1982, when 9.6 inches fell on the 6th of the month.

The snow refused to call it quits Monday morning as it taunted long-suffering New Yorkers with another potentially messy commute.

Steady snowfall in NY forced the Yankees to postpone their scheduled home opener against Tampa Bay on April 2.

The New York Yankees canceled today's home opener due to the snow. The game was moved to 4:05 p.m.

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.

Bella, the Scottish terrier, from Hastings on Hudson NY is enjoying the snowstorm that has hit the northeast, April 2, 2018.

This translates to highs as cold as the 20s in the northern Rockies and northern Plains on Saturday, with 30s as far south as Kansas and Missouri by Easter Sunday.

Minneapolis had the coldest Easter in 16 years with an afternoon temperature of only 31 degrees.

Another system is now forecast to spread an expansive swath of snow from the northern Rockies to the northern Plains and upper Midwest this weekend. The next winter storm is on the way and there's a chance for some communities to get over 6 inches of snow.

"During the day on Tuesday, snow will continue to fall through much of the day in areas well north of Madison; snow accumulations of 1-3" during the day are likely.

The National Weather Service says a winter storm warning is in effect in North Dakota, much of north central Minnesota and northern Wisconsin. The spring storm is expected to drop up to five inches of snow in certain parts of the northeastern United States.
