Share

Another round of snow hit the Northeast Monday morning, slowing travel in several states.

Expect about 3 to 4 inches in the New Brunswick area and 2 to 3 inches around Freehold and Trenton. The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory yesterday which started at 2 a.m. on Monday and remains in effect until 2 p.m. However, roads may ice up this evening as temperatures drop into the 20s. Aberdeen Hill near the Montana-Wyoming border has been snow-packed and icy with the Montana Department of Transportation reporting three semi-trailers in the ditch at 11 a.m. due to icy conditions.

By 10am, there was 5.5-inches of snow on the grounds of Central Park - the most during April for 36 years, when 9.6-inches fell on the 6th of the month.

State police said in a news release the off-duty Hopkinsville officer was shot at about 5:10 p.m. An account has been set up to raise funds for the family of a fallen Kentucky police officer.

Numerous accidents were reported early Monday on I-90 west of Missoula with vehicles also getting stuck on Evaro Hill. At the same time severe thunderstorms are likely to produce large hail and damaging winds from the lower Mississippi Valley up the Ohio River Valley including portions of southern into central IL, as well as much of IN and Ohio (see Marginal, Slight and Enhanced severe storm potential areas outlined on the Tuesday severe weather outlook map below).

Most of the snow will likely be gone by late Monday or Tuesday.
