Snow Storm and Freezing Temperatures Threaten Halloween Festivities Across the United States
Snow Storm and Cold Snap Cast a Chilling Pall Over Halloween Festivities
According to source, a significant snow storm in the US, along with frigid temperatures, is poised to disrupt Halloween celebrations in various parts of the United States. In both Washington, D.C., and Raleigh, North Carolina, an abrupt temperature drop of 20 degrees over a 24-hour period is expected adding to the impact of the snow storm in the US. For Halloween revelers in the Midwest, the prospect of a snow storm looms as snow showers are forecast to spread from the Upper Midwest through the Great Lakes.
On late Monday, approximately 64 million people spanning from southeastern Arizona to segments of New York found themselves under freeze warnings due to the snow storm in the US. Notably Atlanta fell under a freeze watch until 10 a.m. Tuesday, as temperatures may plummet as low as 28 degrees during the snow storm. The weather service in Cleveland playfully described the forecast as a “frightful end for October,” as rain transitions into a snow storm in the US on Tuesday.
Chicago is bracing for “waves of snow” with an estimated inch of accumulation, impacting the morning commute during the snow storm in the US. Meanwhile, the Baltimore and Washington, D.C., areas will endure the coldest nights of the season amidst the snow storm in the US. This cold snap will usher in a chillier atmosphere in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic where temperatures had previously soared into the 70s and 80s over the weekend, contrasting with the snow storm in the US.
Clipper System and Hurricanes: Twin Weather Threats Amidst US Snowstorm
Additionally, a fast-moving “clipper” system from Canada is set to introduce snow showers and the potential for lake-effect snow in the Great Lakes region during the snowstorm. As winter-like conditions encompass various regions of the country, the National Hurricane Center is simultaneously monitoring two disturbances in the Caribbean and Atlantic for possible development in the coming week amidst the snow storm in the US.
The first disturbance is positioned east of the Bahamas with a limited likelihood of development, while the second is poised to evolve into a tropical depression, directing its path toward Central America during the snow storm in the US.
