Snow and Ice for Southern and Eastern U.S.

Significant travel interruptions continue across much of the southern and eastern United States today as a strong winter storm system brings cold temperatures, snow, and ice. Winter weather alerts stretch all the way from Texas to Maine.

Up to 2″ of snow will be possible for parts of central and northern Alabama. Along with temperatures in the 20s, this will create hazardous road conditions. The National Weather Service in Birmingham states that, “travel is expected to become difficult or impossible in some cases.”

Road conditions are also a main point of concern in Houston where a Winter Storm Warning is in effect. Parts of southeastern Texas could get up to 0.1″ of ice accumulation. Travel is not advised today.
