A Brutal Winter Storm Is About to Pound the East Coast

A Brutal Winter Storm Is About to Pound the East Coast

The Weather Channel has named the storm Winter Storm Grayson as part of its winter-storm naming system. Lesser amounts (3 to 6 inches) expected in central and northern New Hampshire into far northwestern ME, since those areas will be farther removed from the storm center.

The National Weather Service office serving northeast Florida and southeast Georgia cautions that a nasty a mix light freezing rain, light sleet, and light snow is expected to develop Wednesday "with significant icing possible".

In all, about 208 million Americans are forecast to wake up to freezing temperatures Wednesday morning, meteorologist Ryan Maue said.

Despite the cold gripping much of the United States for the past week, putting a damper New Year's celebrations, there's more on the way.

The ice accumulations on Wednesday morning will make for hard travel conditions across the eastern Florida Panhandle, north Florida and southeastern Georgia.

Low pressure in the western Atlantic Ocean will intensify and track toward the north-northeast off the Northeast coast late Wednesday through Thursday, before plowing into Atlantic Canada by early Friday. Much of the country, especially the East Coast, will see a wet winter -- with more snow than usual. A wintry mix was forecast for Wednesday. Far inland areas may see snow in the afternoon, but the precipitation rates will be minimal, leading to a dusting for most during the daylight hours. The forecast will change if the storm continues to move closer to the coast. This will help to develop an area of low pressure on a frontal boundary now draped across Florida. New Jersey may see 4 to 6 inches.

Should Southerners expect some snow? However, with cold air in place, all of the state has a decent chance of at least some accumulating (plowable) snow.

Precipitation is first expected to begin wrapping into the subfreezing air tonight in parts of interior north Florida and south Georgia, likely as freezing rain. Wind chills could reach near 15 degrees for most of the area each morning through Saturday.

Winter storm warnings have been issued for portions of the Florida Big Bend, including Tallahassee, and southeastern Georgia.

Travel is likely to be unsafe in these areas Wednesday into early Thursday.

A winter storm is expected to slam the East Coast this week, bringing snow and freezing weather from Florida to Maine.

The powerful storm will be centered well off the Northeast coast.

The cold start prompted some school closings and delays.

Elevated tides will result in minor saltwater inundation of usual low-lying coastal areas around the time of the morning high tides through Wednesday.
