Florida braces for possible snow as cold weather ravages the East Coast

2017 boston cold spells Temperatures Struggle To Rise Into 2018 Storm Threat Thursday

This will be a high impacts winter storm.

Up to 2 inches of snow and ice could fall from the Charleston area to the North Carolina state line. This storm will bring a ice and snow threat to a large area from north Florida northward to New England.

As much as a quarter of an inch of ice and a couple of inches of snow, with locally higher amounts, are possible from portions of the Florida panhandle to eastern North Carolina on Wednesday, the weather service said.

Wednesday, freezing rain or sleet will continue in parts of north Florida generally from Tallahassee to communities west of downtown Jacksonville, to coastal Georgia.

A winter storm is expected to slam the East Coast this week, bringing snow and freezing weather from Florida to Maine. The storm's central pressure will have fallen 55 millibars in just 24 hours - an astonishing rate of intensification. It is an extremely powerful storm with a very strong wind component that will create white-out and blizzard conditions. "Plan on hard travel conditions, including during the morning commute on Wednesday".

IMPACTS: Extremely risky travel conditions will develop through Wednesday.

But snow and ice aren't the only concern: Wind chills will be killer this week, as the arctic air moves across the Midwest and the East.

A storm system will develop off the Florida coast late tonight and early Wednesday morning.

Real Madrid Plotting £120M Move For Eden Hazard
Although with a comment that vague he could have been referring to literally anything, from transfers to his next Ocado shop. Marca have Hazard on their Saturday front page, and inside it's stated the Chelsea player is 'loco' (crazy) for Real Madrid .

All day Thursday meteorologists are going to be glued to the new GOES-East satellite watching a truly wonderful extratopical "bomb" cyclone off New England coast. It's unclear how severe the storm will be or how heavy precipitation will be at this point, as it is still developing over the Atlantic Ocean. A few tree limbs may break and result in isolated power outages.

The best chance for significant accumulating snow along the US coast is in eastern New England.

Blizzards are not a function of how heavy the snow is, but rather how strong the wind is and how poor the visibility. The heaviest snow should be in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and the Jersey Shore. Closer to the beaches, the mix of freezing rain and sleet will likely change to snow late in the day as the storm gradually pulls away.

In western NY, blinding snow Tuesday led to a massive pileup on I-90 near Buffalo, which involved at least 75 cars.

Again, exact amounts will depend on the track of the low in relation to the East Coast.

"A brief mix of light rain and snow will be possible along the I-10 corridor in northeast Florida on Wednesday afternoon before precipitation ends, with no accumulations expected at this time".
