More than 200, 000 customers are without power this morning in Arkansas and the Carolinas this morning after Monday’s winter blast in the Mid-Atlantic states. States of Emergency are declared in several states. The Washington, DC area is blanketed in snow. Federal buildings, monuments and schools are shut down today. A WRAL-TV news reporter showed viewers the hard ice compacted into the snow, making conditions slippery and hazardous for driving Tuesday morning.
The National Weather Service forecast the winter storm will bring heavy snow and ice from parts of the Mid-South to the Mid-Atlantic Tuesday morning. The heaviest snow will occur from Kentucky to Mid-Atlantic where 6-12 inches of snow are possible. Further South, ice is the main threat from Tennessee to North Carolina.
