Freezing rain and ice across the South

Hi All!

Happy Friday everyone! 

We’ve got a busy weather day across the country with a  dangerous, icy situation for the south.  With sub-freezing air in place at the surface, freezing rain is expected from Arkansas through the Tennessee Valley and into northern Alabama, North Georgia and the Carolinas.  Accumulations of up to 1/4″ are possible and roads, especially bridges will become particularly hazardous.

As the system pushes eastward, light snow will bring a few inches of snow to the Mid-Atlantic with even lighter accumulations into the Northeast.  Higher snowfall amounts are expected in the Appalachians.

Meanwhile, a fast-moving system that brought snow to the Midwest overnight is diving through the Great Lakes and spreading snow into the Ohio Valley.  Lake-effect prone regions in Michigan will see enhanced snowfall on the backside of the system.

As far as the cold temperatures, the arctic air that has gripped the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes and Northeast will moderate a bit over the weekend, bringing above average tempertures for a brief time.  Don’t get used to it, because another frigid airmass is expected to move back into the region next week!

At least the winter hasn’t been boring! 

Hope you all have a great weekend!
