Spring snowstorm pushes toward NYC after blanketing Midwest

A spring storm is expected to bring another round of wintry weather to the tristate region with New Jersey bracing for now.

The wide-ranging storm is headed toward the East Coast after blanketing the Midwest and burying thoughts of springtime weather under a blanket of heavy wet snow and slush.

James Madison University students walk along Carrier Drive at the Alumni Association Centennial Park during the snow in Harrisonburg, Va. last night.

Forecasters say light rain and snow will start falling across most of the Garden State and New York City on Monday, according to MyFoxNY.com. The precipitation will continue through most of Monday as a wintry mix of rain, snow and sleet, while temperatures mostly hover in the mid-30s.

About 448 flights in the United States had been canceled, mostly in the New York City area, according to FlightAware.com.

Anywhere from 2 to 6 inches of snow is possible overall in New Jersey; less in the city.

The greatest amounts of accumulation are expected to occur mostly on grassy areas and unpaved surfaces.

To offer customers additional travel options during the expected inclement weather conditions, NJ TRANSIT will offer full system wide cross-honoring on Monday, March 25, enabling NJ TRANSIT customers to reach their final ticketed destination through an alternate travel mode-rail, light rail, as well as on both NJ TRANSIT bus and private bus carriers.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for southern New Jersey and winter weather advisories for northern, central and coastal areas.

In the mid-Atlantic, Heather Sheffield, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va., said more than 3 inches of snow had been reported by 8 a.m. Monday at Washington Dulles International Airport, and more than an inch at Reagan National Airport.

Sheffield said most of that region's expected snowfall had already occurred, but "it happened at the worst time for the morning commute. I know I had a tough time."

But the slushy morning commute and widespread school delays as the storm moved eastward, were minor compared to the storm's impact on the Midwest, where it was blamed for separate crashes in Illinois, Kansas and Missouri on snow-slicked roads.
