January 6, 2017 11:02 AM |

Weekend Storm approaching Southern United StatesThe coming weekend is expected to bring wintry and stormy weather for much of the southern parts of United States. Rain, snow as well as sleet is likely over several parts. So much so that winter warnings have already been for both the Carolinas, Alabama as well as Georgia during the coming weekend.

During the weekend, the storm is expected to affect travel plans right from Texas up to the Carolinas. Some snowfall is also expected over many parts of Alabama, Louisiana, along with a few areas of Mississippi.

Both Virginia as well as Alabama may witness snow ranging from light to moderate in intensity. Both North Carolina and Southeast Virginia are expected to observed somewhere between four and eight inches of snow.

A state of emergency has been declared in several parts of Georgia. Residents have been asked to stay off the roads. Georgians have been asked to respond appropriately before the arrival of inclement weather conditions. Metropolitan Atlanta is expected to witness at least half a foot of snow by Saturday.

Kentucky, Tennessee as well as parts of North are already witnessing some snowfall. However, the chaos will begin when the moist and warm air from the Gulf of Mexico will move ashore and affect the weather around there.

Power outages are possible as heavy snow may result in disruption of power lines. Travel will also become difficult as roads will not be vehicle friendly in the coming days. Freezing rain is possible in many areas which may result in the frost biting, deadly winter weather ahead.
