Tuesday is scheduled as the first day of Spring. However, for many in the Northeast, a winter storm is expected to hit, affecting travel plans for thousands of fliers.
It is also impacting the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship. According to the Associated Press, at least one team had to readjust their travel plans.
The West Virginia Mountaineers, who are facing the No. 1 seed Villanova Wildcats, will be leaving on Tuesday instead of Wednesday for Boston, Mass.
West Virginia arrived back to campus on Monday after playing two games in San Diego, Calif. According to their Basketball social media account, the Mountaineers were on the flight back to West Virginia at 10:15 am PST.
The Mountaineers face the Wildcats on Friday night at TD Garden in the East Region semifinals. This will be the first meeting between the two teams since Dec. 28, 2011 when West Virginia won 83-69.
The winter storm is expected to hit New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, and the eastern part of Pennsylvania on Tuesday and Wednesday, before heading north on Thursday. The storm is expected to be off of the coast of Mass. on Thursday morning.
The storm could dump upwards of more than a foot of snow in certain areas.
