Econintersect: After the “winter that wasn’t” for large areas of the country, there may be as much as a foot of snow from West Virginia up into upstate and western New York this Sunday (April 22), a full month after winter officially ended. Just to remind us that winter did end, other areas in the east, particularly in the southeast, there are expected to be outbreaks of tornados. Elsewhere in the east there are expected to be widespread heavy rains which will break an early drought threat. Along the coast from Florida to New England 2-4 inches of rain are forecast.
As some areas brace for a return to winter weather it is quite a contrast with a few days ago when areas in the northeast had temperates around 90.
