This weekend, we are expecting to see warmer temperatures that will allow daytime thaws across much of the US that has been impacted by historic low temperatures over the past 2 weeks. Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana power outages should continue to improve over the next few days as the weather warms up and precipitation moves out of the region. The latest medium-range outlooks calls for the plains and northern plains to have average to above average temperatures for late February. Today, Snow will continue across portions of southwest Texas, the Tennessee to Ohio Valleys and into the Northeast.
Snow will begin across southern Ontario to southeast New England by this afternoon, and the St. Lawrence River Valley through Atlantic Canada Friday. The heaviest additional snowfall of 6-10 inches falling at rates to 0.75"/hr will occur from the Poconos through the Berkshires and greater Boston area. Snow will taper off across the Tennessee to Ohio Valley through this evening, the Northeast Friday evening, and Atlantic Canada Saturday.
Freezing rain will continue today across portions of Texas and in the Mid-Atlantic. Freezing rain will move into more of southern New England later today. Additional ice accretions of 0.25-0.50 inch will occur across south-central Virginia and adjacent northern North Carolina. Freezing rain will come to an end across Texas tonight, the Mississippi and Tennessee Valley later today, and the Mid-Atlantic to the Northeast Friday morning. Scattered severe storms will occur in the Southeast this morning through the afternoon. Isolated tornadoes, wind gusts to 60 mph and local flash flooding will be the concerns with this activity.
Disruptions to logistical operations are expected, with road and interstate closures causing travel delays, and downed trees and power outages in areas of heavy icing. In addition, those areas that have experienced extended periods of below freezing temperatures will start to see water pipe breaks as temperatures warm up.
