More Than 200 Million In Path Of Major Winter Storm Sweeping Across The US

More Than 200 Million In Path Of Major Winter Storm Sweeping Across The US

A monster storm that started Sunday in California will quickly transverse across the country over the next 72 hours, spreading snow, rain, ice and a wintery mix to more than 200 million Americans.

This is approximately 60% of the entire American population, AccuWeather reported.

“Parts of 39 of the 48 contiguous United States will be impacted by the massive storm, including every state east of the Mississippi River. The storm will have such a large impact on so many because it will reach parts of 26 of the 30 most populous states,” AccuWeather meteorologist Faith Eherts said.

As the storm gains momentum up the Tennessee and Ohio valleys by Wednseday, it will unleash snow and ice over the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and Northeast.

“Since this storm will have a great deal of moisture available to it from the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, a substantial amount of precipitation is likely,” said AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys.

While the Deep South deals with heavy rainfall, temperatures will drop enough for wintry precipitation from northern Texas to Minnesota and Maine.

“As the moisture reaches the mid-Atlantic on Wednesday, it will be cold enough for snow from Washington, D.C. to New York City.”

Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia metro areas can expect a quick burst of 3 to 6 inches of snow starting late Tuesday night into Wednesday, before the precipitation changes into ice then rain.

“Near the time of the change from snow to ice, it may be snowing at the rate of 1-2 inches per hour,” according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

Accuweather warns that commuters in parts of the central Appalachians and the mid-Atlantic region could leave their homes in dry conditions on Wednseday morning but have a hellacious commute back.

Northeast Braces For Snow And Ice, Travel Disruptions Expected

Northeast Braces For Snow And Ice, Travel Disruptions Expected  

A fresh round of snow, ice, and rain is hitting the mid-Atlantic this afternoon. 

By late evening, the storm is expected to sweep across the Northeast into Tuesday night. A quick burst of winter precipitation will be the primary threat across the interior (north of the dashed line) with rain closer to the coast. 

11 AM EST 2/11/2019: Our latest thinking for the Mid-Atlantic with this upcoming storm Monday night through Tuesday night. After a burst of snow, sleet and ice will be the primary threats across the interior (north of the dashed line) with rain closer to the coast. pic.twitter.com/EyDjDMVAhx— Empire Weather LLC (@empirewx) February 11, 2019

Starting Tuesday morning, commuters in New York and the Northeast could experience delays along Interstate 95 and at regional airports in the affected areas.

A low-pressure system moving through the Midwest and the Great Lakes has unleashed a mix of winter precipitation across the mid-Atlantic Monday. By late evening, the storm’s crosshairs will be aimed at New York, Boston and the other municipalities along Interstate 95.”A fast-moving storm will impact the Northeast Monday night through Tuesday night with a plethora of precipitation types. Initially, enough cold air will be present to promote snow from Philadelphia to Boston Monday night into Tuesday. However, warmer air will turn snow to sleet and rain from south to north Monday night through Tuesday evening, making for a messy mixture of precipitation and a tricky morning and evening commute for many Tuesday.

At this time, 1-3 inches of snow is expected from Philadelphia to Boston, along with a messy coating of sleet and ice on top before a change to rain. Across the interior, 3-6” of snow along with an icy mix is expected including Allentown, Pa. and Hartford, Ct. 6-12” of snow is likely across northern New York and northern New England, benefiting ski areas ahead of the President’s Day weekend.
