On the opposite of the coin, it will be snowing across a good portion of New York with temperatures barely at the freezing mark.
It's a simple matter of the blossoming spring season running head-on into winter's leftovers. That often happens in March and April, and when it does, the atmosphere is typically up to no good.
So there will be a big storm tonight and Wednesday, and it will impact a broad area from the northern Great Plains to the Northeast.
North of the storm track, there will be a disruptive snowfall, as much as 6 to 12 inches, but I've seen much worse this time of year. To the south, there will be destructive thunderstorms with straight-line winds gusting to over 60 miles per hour.
The storm is the initial step into a much colder weather pattern for the northern third of the country which will persist into next week and possibly even longer.
