A drastic change in weather has taken Western New York from a near 60 degree meltdown to frigid temperatures and almost 8 inches of new snow.
Accuweather forecasters said the amount of ice, and especially snow, will increase farther to the northeast from central and eastern Kentucky to much of OH, part of West Virginia, western Pennsylvania, western NY and southern Ontario. The National Weather Service has issued wind advisories and warnings for more than 8 million people across the Southeast. Rain will change to freezing rain and sleet and then snow over the duration of the storm. Areas of freezing rain, as well as sleet, start around the Tennessee River mid-morning Friday.
Widespread accumulating snow will create risky travel conditions. "Ice accumulation of a trace to 0.25" possible early. Highs will only be in the teens starting on Sunday through Tuesday with lows in the single digits. On top of that was about three tenths of an inch of sleet, said National Weather Service meteorologist Robin Smith.
The precipitation is predicted to end at least a few hours before temperatures settle near freezing, which should prevent a flash freeze and icy roads. This could cause flooding in low-lying areas-and when the frigid air hits all that water, the Northeast could find itself covered in glacier-like sheets of ice. "Accumulations 1-2" for most. Plan on hard travel conditions especially for the evening commute.
