Winter Storm Xanto brought snow from the northwestern United States on April 11 to the East Coast on April 15.

The storm is expected to weaken on Monday after bringing record April snowfall to the upper Midwest and Great Lakes, although snow and/or ice will linger around the Great Lakes and interior Northeast into the evening.

Snow will continue to wrap in behind Xanto on Monday from the Great Lakes to the Ohio Valley and Appalachians as the storm moves slowly northeastward. Ice or snow changing to rain is forecast across parts of northern New York and northern New England. The storm system will also produce heavy rain along the Northeast Interstate 95 corridor on Monday, causing the potential of localized pockets of flash flooding.

In addition to Winter Storm Xanto, a Plains blizzard, major Upper Midwest snowstorm, and a snowy, icy mess from the Upper Midwest to the Great Lakes and Interior Northeast are also causing transportation delays.

Although USPS is not currently reporting any post office closures, logistics partners are anticipating delays of 24 – 48 hours throughout the affected areas.
