Winter Storm heavy snow, Nor’easter Dumps Feet of Snow.
After overloading on turkey, Black Friday deals and family, Americans headed back to school and work on Monday — but the weather is making the return to normalcy difficult for many in parts of the U.S.
A winter storm that left Americans battling poor weather conditions over the Thanksgiving weekend has returned to cause further disruption in the East. Some workers and school children are seeing their holiday extended after a mixture of rain, snow, sleet and wind is slowing their weekday morning commute, closing some schools and offices, and disrupting air travel.
Conditions are expected to improve by the end of the week, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). The storm is now beginning to abate and is expected to exit the Northeastern region by Wednesday. The storm was predicted to lead to 10 to 20 inches of snowfall by Tuesday morning from northeast Pennsylvania to southern Maine, where winter storm warnings remain in effect. Snow is also expected across the central Appalachians, and warnings are also in effect from western North Carolina to eastern West Virginia.
The storm is expected to continue causing major travel disruptions across the East, while conditions are improving further west across the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley as the storm moves away.
