NYC sees heaviest April snowfall in 36 years

Tuesday, April 3, 2018 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

(Worthy News) - New York City woke up Monday morning to its largest April snowfall since 1982, accumulating more than half a foot in some areas, meteorologists said.

Parts of the Bronx and Grammercy Park in Manhattan saw more than 6 inches of snow as of late morning Monday. The highest snowfall totals of more than 7 inches were in New York's Nassau and Westchester counties, New Jersey's Essex and Bergen counties, and Connecticut's Fairfield and New Haven counties, the National Weather Service said.

The snowfall didn't quite measure up to the accumulations seen during the region's four nor'easter storms this winter, but the totals were unusual for the month of April. The last time New York City had this much snow in April was in 1982, when there was about 10 inches of accumulation. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
