DSC_8485Although the calendar may say it’s spring, the weather has yet to change its mind – two more storms will bring snow to parts of the United States this week. The first has already dropped (14 centimeters) of the white stuff on New York City as of Monday morning.

Other areas including Philadelphia, Boston, and other parts of southern New England can expect to see between 2” and 5” (5 to 12 centimeters) of snow by Monday afternoon.

The weather has snarled traffic and caused delays for thousands. As of 12:15 p.m., 225 flights have been cancelled into and out of New York’s LaGuardia Airport, with a further 579 delayed. John F. Kennedy International Airport has seen 52 cancellations and 222 delays. Newark Liberty International Airport has had 67 cancellations and 471 delays, and Boston’s Logan International Airport has reported 25 cancellations and 121 delays.

Later this week, a snowstorm will move over the Midwest, dumping rain, ice, and snow over Chicago, Minneapolis, and other cities in the region by Wednesday. The storm will be heading east from Montana, where it has already left 10” (25 centimeters) in the northwest part of the state as of Monday.

Minneapolis and Milwaukee will likely see between 5” and 8” (12 to 20 centimeters) of snow, while Grand Rapids, Michigan, is expected to see between 3” and 5” (7 and 12 centimeters). The storm will also dump 8” to 12” (20 to 30 centimeters) on Green Bay, Wisconsin.
