It's April 2 and snow is falling on the Philly region

It's April 2 and snow is falling on the Philly region

Almost two weeks after spring began, residents in the northeastern United States trudged through another snowstorm Monday morning.

The Road Safety Authority (RSA) has produced a short video offering advice on how to deal with hailshowers. The forecast calls for near 50-degree temperatures on Tuesday with weather in the 60s by Wednesday.

During the first week of April, high temperatures would usually be in the low 50s instead of this week's highs in the 30s.

And dare we mention that these words - "a chance of rain and snow" - appear again in the forecasts for Saturday and Sunday?

He said: "Through the week, Scotland is most likely to hold onto the wintry weather for longest".

While temperatures will fall slightly, I believe all of Cape May, Atlantic County south of route 40 as well as most of Cumberland will remain all rain throughout the morning.


The heaviest snow will be from Charles City to Decorah, where three to six inches is likely.

"No-one should ever place themselves at risk on the roads and there are alternative arrangements you can make such as delaying travel until conditions improve or using public transport".

Snow is expected in the north of England, with the possibility of heavy snow over parts of Scotland.

Unsettled weather is expected for the rest of the week in the north and west while in the south and east it could be brighter and less-cold in a southerly breeze. For snow to accumulate in April, temperatures have to be much colder.

There were concerns that some rural communities could become cut off, mainly across the northern Pennines and Scottish Borders, with "significant accumulations" of snow forecast.

The National Weather Service issued the warning which takes effect at 1 a.m. Tuesday morning and runs through 4 a.m. Wednesday.
