This year’s winter was brutal for New Yorkers. Not only was it a snowy and cold December, but the weather was also hard at the beginning of 2022. The months of January and February were significantly colder than usual.
Luckily, we can now see an increase in temperature in many parts of New York State. While some regions experienced temperatures in the 50’s, others had a warmer climate of mid-60’s. This is usually the official sign of the arrival of spring.
But snow is not yet over in the state, and New Yorkers may have to wait a little longer for spring.
According to Patrick Hammer of WGRZ, a virtual NBC affiliated television station in Buffalo, New Yorkers should keep their winter boots handy.
AccuWeather reported that the snow and winter-like climate would be present till the beginning of April. Los Angeles, San Francisco, and a few other states have entered the spring season and will not be seeing snow.
The senior Meteorologist and Long-Range Forecaster Paul Pastelok shared, “A few more storms will track from the Northwest to the southern Rockies then cutting across the Plains and the Ohio Valley through early April.”
This storm, along with the cold air from the north, could lead to snowfalls in New York City, Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Boston.
Pastelok also said, “There is still a small chance for snow in the cities along the I-5 corridor, which is late for this time of year”.
Southern parts of the country, states between Philadelphia and Washington D.C, may not see the storm and have a pleasant spring. The Carolinas and the Gulf Coast are also safe.
