Parts of US brace for winter storms bringing more snow, bitter cold
Written by kslmadmin on February 6, 2021
Winter storms are expected to impact large swaths of the country this weekend, ushering in an arctic blast that will send temperatures plunging, forecasters said.
Nebraska could see up to six inches of snow as a second low-pressure wave will hit the northern Rockies and Plains once more on Saturday night.
The continuous snowfall has led to storm warnings for parts of Montana through Sunday afternoon.
In addition to heavy levels of precipitation, frigid temperatures and dangerous wind chills will extend from the Plains through the Midwest, forecasters said.
The Great Lakes will likely see lake-effect snow through Saturday night and snowfall totals in the area are expected to reach up to a foot.
On the East Coast — which has already seen its fair share of snow over the last couple of weeks — low pressure from Florida will cause snow from the southern Appalachians to New England and thunderstorms across the Southeast.
Precipitation from the system will move up the I-95 corridor to southern New England, with snowfall totals ranging from 2 to 6 inches in the Appalachians and 8 to 12 inches in New England.
Temperatures are expected to warm slightly by the end of next week, according to the Post.
