North Carolina issues state of emergency as snow targets south and northeast

For the Northeast, the storm will hit Sunday evening and Monday morning.

Gather together: Temperatures in the northeast plunge to their lowest level in three years this weekend as snow blows across the south and east coast.

Wind chill warnings and advisories are in effect across New England, where it can appear as 35 to 40 degrees below zero Friday night through Saturday morning. In Boston and New York, the wind chill could drop 15 to 20 degrees below zero on Friday night.

The snow will hit the Midwest first. By Sunday morning, icy rain and snow are tearing southern Atlanta to Raleigh.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper has declared a state of emergency as the storm approaches.

“This storm will have significant impacts of snow, sleet and freezing rain in different parts of the state, with likely power outages and travel disruptions,” Cooper warned.

This storm has the potential to give Atlanta its first measurable snowfall in four years on Sunday.

The southeast could then experience heavy rains and thunderstorms on Sunday night, causing power outages, coastal flooding and travel disruptions for the Interstate 95 corridor.

The storm then targets the northeast, where it will strike Sunday evening and Monday morning.

Currently, the storm is moving further inland into New England and New York State, leaving more rain for the I-95 corridor and the New York area. But it could still disrupt the movements of New York commuters.
