Severe winter weather in April: Which states will see snow on Wednesday the 3rd?

Snow continues to fall across the United States as spring gets underway. Which areas will see snow on Wednesday 3 April?

Spring is here, and snow is still falling in many parts of the United States. Will you see snow in your area over the coming week?

Snow is falling across the United States as spring continues. In other areas, residents are under a tornado alert issued by the National Weather Service (NWS).

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued Winter Storm Warnings in Alaska, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Vermont, and Wisconsin.

The alerts will remain in place in Alaska through Wednesday and Thursday, depending on the area. Residents living in and around the Interior Seward Peninsula, Bering Strait Coast, and Southern Seward Peninsula Coast can expect between three to nine inches of snow, high winds, and cold temperatures. To stay safe from the storm, the NWS advises residents to stay at home as the storm can severely reduce visibility on the roads.

On the other side of the country in Maine, the NWS predicts that some areas will see up to 20 inches of snow and winds up to 45 mph. In Wisconsin, high winds up to forty mph and up to nine inches of snow could fall in certain counties, including Marquette, Green Lake, Fond du Lac, Sauk, and Columbia. For all the current Winter Storm Warnings, please visit the NWS’s website.

Snow to fall in close to a dozen states over the weekend

The NWS has also issued a lesser alert, a Winter Weather Advisory, in various geographies, including Alaska, California, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Vermont, and Wisconsin

What is a Winter Weather Advisory?

"A Winter Weather Advisory will be issued for any amount of freezing rain, or when 2 to 4 inches of snow (alone or in combination with sleet and freezing rain), is expected to cause a significant inconvenience, but not serious enough to warrant a warning."

These storms are expected to be smaller than those in areas under a Winter Storm Warning. Those under any warning from the NWS should read the alert carefully and ensure no precautions need to be taken. The NWS has dozens of social media profiles for the various offices that publish these alerts, and following those in your area is one way to stay current and ensure you are not caught off guard as storms approach.
