Winter Storm Wilbur Dumps Snow on Upper Midwest

  • Measurable snow starts April

Too bad it won't last AND we won't have much sun to go along with it.

It's been a cold and damp morning, but a fairly safe one for the most part. It should produce a "quick burst" of snow - that could coincide with the Friday morning commute - before changing over to rain.

This storm is even bringing snowfall rates an inch per hour in some areas. I think we're going to have to wait until sometime after the middle of the month before we see prolonged spring-like weather. With a lot of blooms on the trees, that adds more weight to the branches with heavy wet snow. Current models show the chance of snow mostly in the interior areas, with coastal spots seeing more rain. Stay tuned for details! And temperatures will take a nose dive. Another storm system approaches from the south and west on Tuesday and brings another chance of showers that day.

Rain will turn to snow late Saturday and mountains could receive several inches of snow.

Could another April snowstorm hit New Jersey this weekend? A frontal system moves south of New England Friday night and another wave of low pressure will ride along it for Saturday afternoon and into Saturday evening. While slippery spots are most likely in the AM, there will be slick spots as you travel north of Kent County during the afternoon.


"It will be snowing, but it will be compacting", she said, adding that warmer air in April makes the snow dense rather than fluffy.

(Updated) - The calendar says it's early April-but, it appears there's no end in sight for KMAland's long stretch of winter weather.

Don't put away your snow shovels and snowblowers just yet, Winona. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

A record daily snowfall of 6 inches was set on March 2, according to the National Weather Service. Newark's snowiest April on record was in 1982, when 13.8 inches fell.
