  • Crazy Snow down South!

    Well, it’s snowing right now in New Orleans!   How fun/exciting/wacky is that?  We’ve got interstates and schools closed all across the south as you might imagine due to the  unusual wintry weather.  Beaumont, Texas received their earliest snowfall on record.   Unfortuntately, many accidents are being reported on 1-10 as roads are slippery and icy.  Winter storm warnings are posted from southeast Louisiana into Mississippi and Alabama as this system continues to move pull cold air in.   Ahead of the cold front associated with this storm, the potential for strong to severe weather will threaten parts of Georgia and Florida.   A tornado watch is up until 12 pm eastern for this region.  Further north, flood advisories are posted all up and down the eastern Seaboard where some regions could see several inches of heavy rain.  In New England, ice storm warnings are posted, and dangerous conditions will persist tonight and tomorrow with accumulations of 1-2 inches of ice on the roads and power lines could make for serious problems.
