Winter Storm Travel Hazards from Mid-South to the Northeast

Heaviest snow is expected along and just west of the Appalachians, and the most damaging icing is likely across parts of North Carolina. Thunderstorms may produce damaging winds and tornadoes in Florida and the eastern Carolinas. Strong winds and coastal flooding are also expected. Read More >
