15 million Americans are under blizzard, ice storm or winter storm warnings. Tornado and flood watches have been draped across the South. The Northeast and Mid-Atlantic are next in line, bracing for double-digit snow totals. At least three deaths were reported in Louisiana from Tuesday and Wednesday’s storms. Ice storm warnings are in effect along the Interstate 81 corridor.
Temperatures near D.C. are near or above freezing. East of Route 15, toward the Washington-Baltimore area, conditions are slightly warmer. The moisture associated with a secondary low will ride into the Northeast.
