Global Cooling? Northeast Rocked By Snowstorm In Late April

The Northeast prepares for blustery days.

Summer is just around the corner. June 20, the first day of summer, is not far away. Many people are getting ready for the sultry season by buying cool clothing and preparing for poolside parties. But those in the Northeast have been forced to trade in their fun-in-the-sun plans for snow shovels.

Newfield, N.Y., received 10 inches of snow by Monday morning, while Ridgebury, Penn., reported 8 inches.

Students who had just weeks ago celebrated spring break found themselves in a winter wonderland.

The snowfall is record-setting. Previously, the highest recorded snowfall in Pittsburgh for this time of year was half an inch. That happened in 1956. On Monday, Pittsburgh is likely to receive five inches. Other areas of Pennsylvania are bracing for as much as one inch every hour.

Cities in the storm’s path are making preparations. It is expected that the storm may disturb air traffic in New York, Philadelphia and Boston. The mass transit system is also expecting problems. “The MTA [Metropolitan Transportation Authority] has put together its emergency plans and preparations. The subway system, Long Island Railroad and Metro North as well as all of our bridges and tunnels are on alert with the concern of wind as well as the amount of water that we’re about to receive,” said Joseph Lhota, executive director of the MTA.
