Storms, chilly air to frequent northeastern US well beyond Easter weekend

NOAA

Following mainly dry conditions on Easter Sunday, frequent storms and chilly episodes are in store for the northeastern United States into mid-April.

A press of colder air on Easter Sunday will not be the last of the season.

The cold press will follow the potent storm that brought snow and blustery conditions to the Midwest on Saturday.

Any showers to start the day will yield to some sunshine along the Atlantic Seaboard on Easter Sunday.

People across the eastern Great Lakes and northern Appalachians that plan on heading out to sunrise services Sunday morning should be on the lookout for patches of ice following the showers and temperature dip from Saturday night.

Blustery conditions across the northern tier will fade to a cool breeze over the southern part of the mid-Atlantic region on Sunday.

People may be able to get out for a walk after church or dinner in coastal areas of the mid-Atlantic without too much discomfort. Those venturing out farther north and west may need a warm coat for a stroll.
