U.S. winter storm to impact 120 million people
Tuesday, February 4, 2014, 12:59 PM -
But Canada is only getting the edge of that system, a Texas low that will track all the way across a huge area of the United States, potentially dumping up to 30 cm of snow or more on the region.
The U.S. National Weather Service has issued winter storm advisories of some kind from Wyoming in the west to Maine in the east, stretching down into Arkansas, which is bracing for freezing rain and ice as well.
In the storm's path is more than more than a third of the U.S. population, around 120 million people in all.
As it stands, large parts of the northeast are in the process of digging out of a storm on the weekend, which dumped dozens of centimetres on the region and at one point almost put the Super Bowl forecast in jeopardy.
Some parts of the U.S. are still digging out after that winter blast.
Once again, road crews lag far behind the storm. This is US 285 near Santa Fe. Note rescue crew headed other way. pic.twitter.com/Alzc6fkdTz— Matt Grubs (@MattGrubs) February 4, 2014
Meanwhile, in Canada, the edge of that system will begin to effect southern Ontario Tuesday night into Wednesday, while Atlantic Canada is next in its path on Wednesday into Thursday.
Here's the latest look at amounts and times:
