Weather and shipping

Last Saturday, I sent a package by priority mail to be delivered to Ann Arbor. It was reasonable to expect it to get there by Wednesday. I sent it from Philadelphia.

It still isn't there. The post office says it was hung up by bad weather. For reasons which are unclear to me, it was sent by way of Washington. The state of Washington.

There've been bad storms in the US recently, but I'm unsure of the placement and timing, so I can't tell if the idea that the package was hung up by weather is reasonable.

A fast googling doesn't turn up any sites that track how weather would be likely to affect shipping times. It seems to me that such a site would be hard but possible, and conceivably profitable if it had ads on it.
