A new prediction predicts a second summer of heavy snow in the United States and a third for the winter months of April through July.
The National Weather Service said Thursday it expects the heaviest snowfall in the continental U.S. from April 18 to June 4.
The NWS said the heavy snow will be heavy enough to make driving dangerous.
It also said that snow accumulation could reach as much as 5 feet (1.6 meters).
The snowfall forecast is in line with the weather service’s forecast earlier this month that predicted heavy snow and heavy snowfall across much of the Midwest and Northeast.
The forecast comes after a series of snow storms that left at least four people dead.
The snow was expected to be heavier than it was last winter, and officials said they expected more snow to fall.
They also said the storm surge from heavy snow could reach 30 feet (9 meters).
There is a possibility of more snow from this storm in the coming weeks.
In a separate forecast, the NWS also said there could be snow in Minnesota by the end of next week, and by early May, the National Weather Services office in Minneapolis had already issued two snow alerts.
