NWS: 4 counties under storm warning

Southern shutdown Snow and ice prompt closings

The South awoke on Wednesday to a two-part Arctic mess.

Though the snowfall had stopped by about 9:30 a.m., Oconee County Sheriff Scott Berry still urged people to stay off roads. United was offering to waive fees for changes to flights to and from Boston, New York, Philadelphia and other affected airports for scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday flights. The Mississippi Department of Transportation said in a statement Tuesday morning that there was ice on roads and bridges in 36 of 82 counties. That included the Florida Panhandle, where snow or ice has fallen on three separate occasions this winter. In North Carolina, where more than 2,000 snow-plow personnel worked to clear roads, the state Highway Patrol reported almost 1,600 traffic accidents during the first 12 hours of Wednesday.

David Johnston, 22, is a Georgia tech undergrad student and originally from the Atlanta area.

They go through a pretty rigorous round of post-storm analysis internally, to see what verified and what didn't. "When it snows, the city shuts down", he said. He thought his office was open but wasn't sure. Dozens of accidents were reported across the metropolitan area, one involving a salt truck. Majority involved several single-vehicle mishaps, mostly spinouts and vehicles sliding off roadways, said Rodriquez. You've got plenty of company. Roadways will become snow covered and slick as the snow moves toward the south and east. Temperatures are very cold and dropping. The units are said to be on circulation, heated up but unable to process anything.

The blast of cold air shattered records early Wednesday in Louisiana and Mississippi. The temperature was around 10 degrees (minus 12 Celsius) when she was found.

In Atlanta, it was supposed to be 16 degrees for the low Wednesday but winds were going to be 15 miles per hour or stronger, making for a wind chill of zero.City offices were shuttered for Wednesday and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency for 83 counties in the northern and central sections of the state.

North Carolina, bracing for 4 to 8 inches of snow in the north central area, declared a state of emergency. This line extends from Columbus to Macon to Augusta and northward.

Even where accumulation is lighter, it could lead to slippery travel given the recent stretch of low temperatures, the National Weather Service said on Twitter.

Both Chambers County Schools and Chambers Academy have announced they will be closed Wednesday. The snow will begin during the afternoon across western MA, then slowly but steadily progress east tonight.

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued winter weather advisories and storm warnings for northern Georgia into Virginia and from MA to Maine.

Bands of heavier snow bringing up to four inches of accumulation is forecasted to fall over parts of Kanawha, Putnam, Cabell, Wayne and Lincoln counties.

The snow should taper off early Wednesday morning in areas in east Alabama. Some road conditions are expected to worsen if there's moisture on the roads.
