The Nation's Weather for Wednesday, February 20, 2019

—————

NATIONAL SUMMARY

A major storm will bring heavy snow from the Upper Midwest

to parts of the Northeast today. After a quick burst of

snow, sleet and freezing rain will make for icy conditions

and raise the risk of power outages over the central

Appalachians and part of the mid-Atlantic states during the

day to part of southern New England at night. Drenching rain

may lead to new flooding and aggravate existing flooding

over the Ohio, Tennessee and lower Mississippi valleys as

well as parts of the southern Appalachians and the Carolina

coast. A few downpours will dot the Gulf coast. While much

of the Plains will be dry, a new storm will spread cold rain

along the coast and snow over the inland areas of the

Northwest. Snow will break out over parts of the Southwest

at night.
