Spring snowstorm makes for slippery, sloppy commute

The Associated Press

A fast moving spring snowstorm swept through parts of the Northeast, spreading a wintry mix that made for a slow and slushy commute to start the work week.

The storm stretched from Ohio to coastal southern New England early Monday and was expected to drop 2 to 6 inches of snow on parts of the area, while other areas saw accumulation only on grassy surfaces.

In the Mahoning Valley, snow mainly covered, grass, trees and roofs. Roads were merely wet.

A winter weather advisory was in effect in New York, and a steady snow forced the Yankees to postpone their scheduled 1:05 p.m. home opener against Tampa Bay.

In the New York City area, LaGuardia, Kennedy and Newark Liberty airports all reported some flight disruptions.

The storm was forecast to move off the coast later in the day, giving way to gradually warming temperatures and melting.

Get ready for typical spring adjustments this week: The forecast for parts of the Valley shows temperatures expected to hit 65 on Tuesday.
