Winter and Severe Weather Continue Across Parts of the Nation! (credit: Meteorologist Jordan Rabinowitz)
DISCUSSION: As we enter the heart of the overnight period across the entire stretch of the contiguous United States, the threat from both severe and winter weather is far from over in many places. As far as the winter storm threat is concerned, much of Maine as well as other parts of semi-interior New England saw substantial snowfall totals pile up as sufficiently cold air worked its way into the slow moving precipitation shield which gradually worked through parts of coastal and semi-interior New England overnight last night and through much of the day! Many areas received up to between 3 and 6 inches with some spots with some areas receiving locally higher amounts in places where heavier snow banding persisted for longer periods of time between overnight last night and through much of today. In terms of the ongoing severe weather threat, many areas across parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and Kentucky are and will remain to be "under the gun" with a very legitimate threat for strong winds, hail, frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, and even a few isolated (and potentially strong) tornadoes. Be sure to watch the brief video briefing above for details on this serious situation focused primarily across the southeastern United States!
