A storm over the Southwest moved eastward from the Southern Rockies Thursday morning, and redeveloped over the Tennessee Valley and is forecast to head northeastward to the Central Appalachians/ Mid-Atlantic by Friday. The storm also produced heavy snow over the Southwest and Central Rockies on Wednesday, with light rain over parts of Southern California and rain at lower elevations of the Southwest.

A variety of winter hazards hit the Southern Plains through the Ohio Valley Wednesday through Thursday night and are forecast to hit the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic Thursday night through Friday. Damaging ice accumulations across the Ozarks up to 0.50 inch leading to power outages and tree damage were expected. The swath of notable accumulations of freezing rain hit North Texas through the Mid-Mississippi Valley. Overnight Thursday, snow will develop over parts of the Middle Mississippi Valley into the Great Lakes.
As the system moves to the Central Appalachians/Mid-Atlantic on Friday morning, heavy snow will develop over parts of the Northeast into Southern New England. Widespread amounts of 6-12 inches are forecast. A freezing rain area is likely from the Eastern Ohio Valley through the Central Appalachians into the Mid-Atlantic States.
Significant ice accumulations are possible across south-central Pennsylvania and western Maryland. Widespread hazardous travel and damage to the power infrastructure are anticipated.
Chicagoland was spared with areas only reporting about 2 to 4 inches of snow.
