Major Winter Storm Affecting Southeast Before Moving into Mid-Atlantic and Northeast

A very complex weather pattern is taking shape across the southern U.S. and is expected to bring a mixture of winter weather hazards, including heavy snow and freezing rain, across the South and Southeast Tuesday into Wednesday before moving up the Eastern Seaboard, where it will affect parts of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Wednesday into Friday. From the Current Area Forecast Discussion Issued by NWS Atlanta, GA, "THESE ARE CRIPPLING SNOW AND ICE TOTALS IN THIS STORM OF POTENTIALLY HISTORIC PROPORTIONS. RESIDENTS OF NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA NEED TO DO EVERYTHING THEY CAN TODAY TO PREPARE FOR THIS EVENT. RESIDENTS ARE VERY VERY VERY STRONGLY URGED TO STAY OFF THE ROADS WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT." This image was taken by GOES East at 1945Z on February 11, 2014.
