Winter storm unloads snow, ice on South, heads for Northeast

A winter storm will continue to dump snow and ice across the South on Tuesday, wreaking havoc with road and air travel. The storm will take aim on the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast overnight and into Wednesday. Hundreds of flights were canceled at Texas airports — including Houston, San Antonio and Austin — where frigid temperatures left runways dangerously icy. More than 835 flights had been canceled nationwide as of 11:35 a.m. ET, according to flight tracking service FlightAware. “Bitter cold temperatures filtering in behind a cold front will continue to allow a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain to impact portions of south-central into southeastern Texas and Louisiana Tuesday,” the National Weather Service said.

Snowfall will generally total a coating to an inch or two from northeastern Texas through southern Arkansas, northern Louisiana, northwestern Mississippi and Tennessee, AccuWeather said, though higher amounts were reported in some areas. The storm brought some impressive snowfall totals to western Kentucky, the Weather Channel said, including 9 inches in Murray and 8.1 inches in Paducah. Up to a half foot of snow has also been measured in east-central Arkansas near Palestine.
