Severe Weather Team 11 is finalizing the changing forecast, for Channel 11 Morning News starting at 4:30 a.m.
Despite it being the start of April, a quick-moving snowstorm will race eastward from the Ohio Valley through the mid-Atlantic and southern New England into Monday morning.
To the north of the storm’s track, a narrow swath of snow is expected. The band of accumulating snow will be no more than 100-150 miles wide, so a 25-mile north-to-south distance could mean the difference between a coating of snow and up to a half a foot.
“This snow event will last 8 hours or less in any one community, but that will be enough time to whiten the ground with some areas also facing slick travel,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said.
Most communities along the path of the storm will receive 3-6 inches, but there can be localized amounts up to 8 or 9 inches in parts of central Pennsylvania.
