Heavy rain in East, and April snowflakes for some


A spring nor'easter is rumbling along the East Coast and is expected to bring rain and heavy winds and even snow to some places as it strengthens into early Monday.

David Stark, a National Weather Service meteorologist in New York City, says the storm is atypical for April but not uncommon.

From Philadelphia north through New York City and into southern New England up to 4 inches of rain could fall, with the heaviest downpour expected early Monday. Some areas could see wind gusts of 25-30 mph.

Higher-elevation areas in the western parts of Pennsylvania and New York and in West Virginia and Ohio could even see snow. Forecasts call for 4 to 12 inches.

Flooding is possible in some areas.
