  • Big winter storm moves into the Northeast

    Hi everyone!

    We had a terrible tornado outbreak yesterday across Louisiana and Mississippi including the city of New Orleans.

    A state of emergency is in place with incredible destruction from at least 7 tornadoes reported. Today is a quieter day in terms of severe weather, but we’re now watching a coastal storm that will impact the Northeast starting tonight.

    The system will form overnight off the coast and bring significant impacts from the MidAtlantic to New England through much of  Thursday.  Winter storm warnings are up for millions of people from Philadelphia to Boston:

    The potential exists for heavy snow and dangerous travel conditions including the major interstate 95 cities.  We are forecasting a wide swath of 6-10 inches for millions of people.

    The worst of the snow will be during tomorrow’s rush hour.  Be prepared for delays, cancellations and difficult if not impossible travel.

    Also want to make mention that the Northeast isn’t the only spot receiving big snow.  The West will get pounded again with inches of rain and feet of snow over the next few days:

    Be safe everyone!  I’ll have another update tomorrow morning.  See you on Fox and Friends…
