🌡️ The Gist: A blast of cold air is expected to bring the first snowflakes of the season to the Southeastern United States, following a blizzard in the Plains.
📰 The Details: As the Southeastern U.S. braces for a touch of winter weather, areas may experience their first snowflakes of the season before the weekend. A significant storm, which recently unleashed a blizzard and ice storm across the Plains and Upper Midwest, is shifting its focus towards the Southeast. This change is set to introduce wintry conditions in the region.
🌍 In Context: The Southeast rarely experiences such wintry conditions. Last year, Nashville, Tennessee, and Huntsville, Alabama, recorded minimal snowfall on December 26. This year, a measurable snowfall, even as little as 0.1 of an inch, is possible into the weekend.
⛄ Why It Matters: The potential for snowfall, although not heavy, marks a significant shift in weather patterns for the Southeast, an area unaccustomed to such wintry conditions. This could impact travel plans and necessitate preparation for colder weather.
📱 What You Can Do: Residents in the affected areas should stay informed through weather apps and news updates, and prepare for possible travel disruptions.
🔜 What’s Next?: AccuWeather will continue to monitor this slow-moving swath of wintry conditions. Updates on snow potential in the Southeast will be provided as the situation develops.
