AccuWeather reports intense snowstorm may hit over weekend

(Continued)

MEADVILLE — Another scenario would be for the storm to behave more like other storms have done recently with a period of moderate to heavy snow streaking across part of the Midwest to part of the Northeast. Winds would be significantly less and probably not a factor. Overall, a more manageable storm would occur.

Either way, it appears another disruptive storm for travel and daily activity concerns will sweep from the Central states to the East Coast.

In both scenarios, rain would fall across the Deep South and some snow would sweep across part of the southern Plains during Saturday night and the Tennessee Valley and southern Appalachians on Sunday. A period of snow would also streak eastward across the Midwest cities of St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Cincinnati and Cleveland.

However, a stronger storm would imply more thunderstorm activity and a greater risk for severe weather in part of the Southeastern states.

The details on the nature of storm for this weekend will unfold in the coming days.

At least most areas in the path of the snow will have several days to prepare for the storm, instead of the short-order snowfall of late.

The Sunday to Monday weather event will not mark an end to the stormy pattern. Additional storms are on deck through at least the middle of February.
