Travel disruptions are expected across the central and eastern United States as the region is likely to get swept by a storm early this week.
The storm is likely to produce a band of snow and ice coming from the northern Plains to the Upper Midwest and the Northeast. Enough warm air is likely to bring a taste of spring. But there is possibility of heavy thunderstorms, rains, and gusty winds.
Though, the northern row of states can expect enough snow and ice to cause dangerous travel and school delays. Parts of Dakotas, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan can also expect heavy snow and ice from Monday night until Tuesday.
People travel to and from Minneapolis can expect slippery and wet roads. Before high temperatures show up in plains, Monday evening can be icier for Detroit. Moreover, as per the weatherman, prior to rain and sleet, snow up to a few inches is also likely in the northeastern New York state, Vermont, New Hampshire and central and northern Maine.
Monday night until Tuesday morning will see a period of ice glaze across northeastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey to portions of Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. As the storm is expected to begin to surge, Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York City and Boston can also expect torrential rains also leading to flooding at a few parts.
Though, gusty thunderstorm likely to affect middle Mississippi, Ohio and Tennessee valleys will also lead to power outages and trembling trees.
Cool air is also expected to span across the Midwest and the East during Wednesday night.
