Weekend storm expected to drop snow across northern Arizona

AccuWeather

A storm set to hit New Jersey this weekend won't drop much snow, but it will bring a "smorgasbord of winter weather" with the potential for a risky coating of ice for parts of the state, the National Weather Service said Friday.

Rain chances will drop but clouds will linger for Sunday with highs in the low 40s and north winds at 10 to 15. My early thinking is that we'll see one or two inches of snow for many of us with a coating to an inch south of Boston.

Over 200,000 customers are now without power in OR because of the ice.

The East Coast is experiencing a major storm with freezing rain, sleet and snow. That's enough to cause downed power lines and trees. Snow or ice - or both - is forecasted through at least next Friday. This will likely cause roads to be slippery and risky. Significant snow is expected in Oklahoma.

IMPACTS: Travel could be very hard, especially by Sunday night into Monday.

Of even greater concern is the snow, freezing rain and sleet moving into Texas.

The total amount of precipitation with this storm looks to be more, so the potential is for heavier snow but obviously, this far out a lot can change. Additional ice accumulations of one quarter to three quarters of an inch are likely.

Ahead of this storm, more snow and wintry mix will form across parts of the Midwest and the Appalachians. By Tuesday, the storm will have spread into the Northeast. The Thursday and Friday storms could have similar effects, Martin said. Additionally, and perhaps more dangerously, widespread ice accumulation is expected from Houston to New York City.

While piercing wind gusts are to be expected in these higher elevations, cities such as Portland and Seattle will be fanned by 25 to 40 miles per hour gusts during the passing of these storms, bringing wind chills in the respective cities down to the teens at times.

ABC's Travis Herzog at KTRK is saying this cold weather could break records. The NWS Weather Prediction Center is calling this a "once in a decade" event.

Temperatures as low as minus 45 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 43 Celsius) gripped Montana and Minnesota as cities such as Bismarck, North Dakota, shivered at minus 26 F (minus 32 C).
