One thousand mile long snowstorm to pummel U.S. Northeast

December 14, 2013CLIMATEHeavy snow and travel disruptions will spread from the Midwest and into the Northeast as the day progresses on Saturday. The snowstorm will span more than 1,000 miles. Snow will fall on and impact every major city and rural area from St. Louis to Boston, including Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and New York City. The area encompasses about 110 million people. Thanks to recent Arctic air making roads and sidewalks much colder compared to previous storms, enough snow to shovel and plow is in store from parts of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland and New Jersey to much of Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. Not only will the storm make roads and sidewalks slippery, raising the risk for slip-and-fall incidents and auto accidents, but it is likely to cause many flight delays and cancellations. The visibility will be poor, runways will become snow covered and aircraft will need to be de-iced. The storm could cause shipping delays and force Christmas shoppers to change their plans for the weekend. The recent cold weather, this storm, and others will translate to plenty of snow on the ski slopes. –Accuweather
