A spring Nor'easter is headed our way, and although the calendar reads spring, a “bomb” of a Nor'easter snowstorm has other plans. Americans have been asking “Could this be winter’s last blast?” for well over a month, and it appears we need to brace for another round of Arctic air.
According to myfoxphilly.com on March 23, the spring Nor'easter is expected to move up the coast starting Tuesday night with rain, but will quickly change over into snow that could be heavy at times.
Snowfall is expected to invade the central and eastern USA starting this week, with heavier snow seen in Virginia to New England. Record lows for late March are expected as well as temps fall back into the teems and 20s.
National Weather Service meteorologist Frank Pereira said that “much colder air will begin to filter south and east across the central and eastern U.S.”
After a few days of normal, springlike temperatures, “below-normal temperatures will return to much of the northern and central Plains, as well as the upper Midwest by Saturday as another Arctic high settles out of Canada into the northern Plains,” Pereira said.
Fellow weather service meteorologist James Cisco warned of a “Nor'easter bomb indicated off the mid-Atlantic coast late Tuesday night.”
In meteorology, a “bomb” refers to a rapidly deepening cyclonic low-pressure area that intensifies quickly.
Not unlike our rapidly growing frustrations over an endless winter.
