This system will bring heavy winter rains north to the southern states of Texas and New Mexico, but the snowfall effects will be felt later in states from Oklahoma to Maine, through Arkansas, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania , New York and Vermont.

In other words, much of the country will feel the arrival of winter. “As this storm progresses through the week, snow may fall throughout a zone that extends for 2,000 miles (+3,200 km),“ explained AccuWeather.

In recent days, the thermometer in New York registered temperatures above  70° F, but this Sunday it will remain between 40-50° F, and could decrease even more when the storm finally arrives during the week.

These storms, which include dramatic temperature changes are due to La Niña phenomenon which, for the third year in a row, will lead to unsettled winter weather in which people could enjoy hot days followed by abrupt temperature drops.

“Early season snowfall sometimes tends to have problems in terms of accumulation on roads,» AccuWeather meteorologist Joe Bauer warned. However, they still do not specify how much snow this storm will bring. Still, his comment serves as a warning to motorists.

Avoiding highways is preferable, but those who need to travel should be aware of hazardous conditions due to slippery roads and poor road visibility. Experts suggest taking precautions and driving carefully.
