As the chart above shows, I have highlighted much of the Northern Plains, Midwest, Ohio Valley and Northeast for the risk of an early snowfall event. I have put these areas in a 25-50% chance for an early snowfall. The states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, northern Ohio, northwest Pennsylvania, New York and portions of the far Northeast will have above a 50% chance for an earlier than normal snowfall event. This comes as a result of what could be a favorable pattern for colder weather to hit the nation as we head into fall. Should a storm system come along in the midst of this cold air, it is very possible that a snow event could come about.
