The snowstorm that hit the Midwest on Sunday night and Monday morning is headed east. Livestock producers in southern Michigan, the northern counties of Indiana and Ohio, and states to the east can expect heavy snow and strong winds Monday night and Tuesday, according to AccuWeather.
“A storm will first continue to bring snow and travel problems in the Midwest through Monday; a new storm will rapidly strengthen and hug the east coast of the U.S. early this week,” AccuWeather reported. “Snow will then rapidly spread northward spanning Monday night to Tuesday night.
The weather forecaster said this will likely be the biggest and most impactful storm of the winter for many areas in the Northeast.
“Snow and snow drifts will clogs streets and highways. Heavy snow and wind will trigger airline delays and flight cancellations. Some flights have already been canceled in advance of the storm,” AccuWeather said.
“For thousands of miles of roads in the region, this will be an unusually cold storm for the middle of March,” AccuWeather noted. “Much of the snow that falls will rapidly accumulate on the roads across the interior of the mid-Atlantic and New England. Snowfall could rival that of the March 1993 blizzard. Some people could become stranded on area highways.”
Be extra careful if you live in these areas, and schedule livestock truck deliveries accordingly.
