Wagswoofs – Get ready, snow enthusiasts, because an extraordinary weekend may be in store for you. According to AccuWeather, millions in the Northeast could soon witness their first major winter storm of the season, and perhaps in years.
Meteorologists are forecasting that the storm originating from the Pacific will make its way across the southern Plains, move towards the Gulf of Mexico, and extend as far as the mid-Atlantic and New England from Saturday through Sunday.
It’s hard to believe, but the last time New York City saw an inch of snow accumulate from a single storm was back in February 2022, almost two years ago. Needless to say, the severe weather alert has everyone feeling on edge.
Experts are cautioning motorists and travelers about the possibility of worsening travel conditions due to potential precipitation. However, the exact amount and impact of the precipitation won’t be known until later. This warning applies to both drivers on the road and individuals planning to fly in or out of the area.
According to a report from AccuWeather, property owners should prepare their snow shovels and snow blowers and have ice-melting compounds on hand. The report also suggests that highway departments and townships should review their plan of action in preparation for the storm.
