Snowfall Reaches 13 Inches
Areas in the storm’s path have already accumulated a hefty 13 inches of snow. As if that weren’t enough, wind gusts exceeding 60 mph are adding to the hazardous conditions.
Ice Coating in Northern States
The storm isn’t sparing the northern states, where up to half an inch of ice is clinging to trees and power lines from Minnesota to North Dakota, intensifying the challenges.
Blizzard Continues into Wednesday
Buckle up for a prolonged blizzard experience as the storm is set to persist until Wednesday. Gusty winds will persist, and an additional 4 to 8 inches of snow is anticipated from South Dakota to Colorado.
Southern States Facing Rainfall Woes
The same weather system is causing trouble in the South, bringing 2 to 4 inches of rain on Tuesday. Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia should be on alert for potential flooding.
East Coast Braces for Heavy Rain
As the storm moves eastward, heavy rain is expected to hit Washington, D.C., on Wednesday morning and make its way to New York City in the afternoon. The East Coast is urged to prepare for significant rainfall.
