May Snowstorm Headed For The Northeast And New England

A May snowstorm is in the making for this weekend, and it could bring historic snow totals to parts of the interior Northeast and New England.

On Friday, a storm system moving into the Northeast will clash with bitter cold Arctic air courtesy of the polar vortex, bringing the potential for heavy, wet snow across the interior Northeast and New England. Heavy rain is possible along the I-95 corridor.

Widespread snowfall totals will range from a dusting to 6-8 inches in some spots, while isolated areas in extreme northern 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.

In addition to the rain and snow, it will be very windy with gusts over 40 mph across the entire Northeast region and Eastern Seaboard. Snow, rain showers and gusty winds will continue for the Northeast and New England through Saturday.

About 45 million people are already under freeze watches and warnings from the Upper Midwest to Appalachians. These will likely expand in coverage and population.


2020 is an absolute joke. People across the United States are going to wake up to 20-30 degree weather. It’s going to feel like Christmas in may and I want to have a word with that damn groundhog that said winter would be over by now. That little rascal could not have been any more wrong. Not to even mention the Monstrous murder hornets that made their way to the U.S.

The hornets prey on bees and just rip their heads off, they’re savages. They have powerful venom that makes them dangerous to humans and they are responsible for about 50 deaths a year in Japan. I don’t know about you guys but I’m ready for 2021.
