Accuweather’s ‘Groundhog Day Storm’ may send freezing rain, snow this week

STATEWIDE — Weather forecasters are predicting a possible “snow/ice event” in the middle of this week, which could include a few inches of snow or a lot of freezing rain and ice.
One Accuweather blogger writes, “A large winter storm forecast to unfold could adversely affect more than 100 million people next week from the Rockies to the Plains, South, Midwest and Northeast, if it develops to its full potential…How nasty the storm gets and the primary form of precipitation for the Northeast, Midwest, interior South, and Plains depend on the exact track of the storm, still days away…Meteorologist Mark Mancuso stated, ‘This storm and perhaps a second storm could impact travel to the Super Bowl in Dallas next weekend, potentially from areas of ice, snow, high winds and cold.’ The system expected to parent the storm over the middle of the nation was located 500-1,000 miles off the coast of the Northwest U.S. Friday.
