Above-Freezing Readings ‘Warm’ Northeast Amid Snowstorms
UNDATED (AP) — Above-freezing temperatures are in Sunday's forecast amid the relentless snow and cold temperatures that have hit the Northeastern United States this winter.
Snow continued to fall in the region or turn to icy rain overnight but temperatures are expected to warm Sunday to highs near the mid-30s in Boston and Portland, Maine, and near 42 in Philadelphia. Even with the wind chill, it could seem a "balmy" 30 to 35 degrees in New York City.
But Kim Buttrick of the National Weather Service says the warmer temperatures will be "a little teaser" before readings return to below normal on Monday and Tuesday.
Snow began falling over the East Coast on Saturday, dropping a wintry mix as far south as northern Georgia.
Meanwhile, Colorado's Front Range is getting blasted by heavy snow falling at a rate of up to three inches an hour. The latest winter weather could bring two feet or more to some areas by Monday. Denver could get 14 inches and some flights have been canceled.
