April Nor'easter Arrives

Almost 700,000 customers were without power across the Northeast yesterday as a powerful storm system brought high winds and more than 2 feet of snow to some locations in the region. Three people were killed in separate incidents after trees fell on their vehicles.

Meteorologists said the storm was the biggest April nor'easter to hit the area since 2020. The weather phenomenon occurs when Arctic air carried southward from Canada by the jet stream meets warmer, moist air off the Atlantic coast.

In other weather-related news, forecasters said yesterday the upcoming Atlantic hurricane season has the potential to be the most active on record. The early analysis predicts 23 named storms (compared to 14 to 15 on average), with five systems reaching Category 3 status or higher (the yearly average is around three). Hurricane season begins June 1 and peaks in September.
