Yeah, it’s May but that isn’t stopping a huge snow storm from heading to the East Coast on Saturday (5/9).
NBC News reports that the May snowstorm could bring historic snow totals to parts of the Northeast and New England. In addition, heavy rain is possible along the I-95 corridor.
Expected snowfall totals range from a dusting to 6-8 inches in some spots, while some parts of New England could see up to a foot. If this happens, it will shatter May snowfall records. Some cities that could see snow include Syracuse, Rochester, Binghamton, Albany in New York; Scranton, Pennsylvania; and Burlington, Vermont.
On Saturday morning (5/9), 75 million people will wake up to temperatures below freezing and wind chills in the Northeast will be in the 20s and 30s.
New York and Buffalo; Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee; Baltimore; Detroit; Pittsburgh; Charlotte, North Carolina; Little Rock, Arkansas; Montgomery, Alabama; and Shreveport, Louisiana are some of the cities that could set record lows over the weekend include. The last time New York City dipped into the 30s in May was 1978.
