Northern Auto Transport Routes to be Inundated with Snow
There’s a storm system moving west to east this week that is going to dump some serious snow on much of the northern United states. This storm is going to make northern auto transport routes even trickier to traverse than normal. It’s going to hit the Pacific Northwest first before moving into Montana and then the northern Midwest. Then it’ll continue to dump snow on the Great Lakes regions and then New England before disappearing off the coast.
How the storm will impact northern auto transport routes
When the storm passes over the Pacific Northwest (which it seems to be doing as of this writing), it’s going to mostly be rain. It’s still a bit too warm to see much snow at the lower elevations west of the Cascades. But once the system passes the Cascade ranges, it’s going to start dumping snow, and lots of it.
This is going to impact most major routes through the northern Midwest, mountain states and New England as the week progresses. Huge east-west highways such as I-90 and I-94 are likely going to see wintry conditions that will slow traffic in areas. And considering how big the storm is, we could end up seeing long delays in transit times.
The storm will likely also impact shipping schedules after the snows have passed. During the storm conditions will likely lower visibility, which will cut how fast a carrier can travel. This is important because a carrier doesn’t want to risk damaging their cargo. Some carriers may just avoid the area entirely. We recommend speaking to an agent to learn more about how carriers are preparing for the severe weather ahead.
