๐ŸŒก๏ธ 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.

๐Ÿ“ฐ 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.

๐ŸŒ 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.

โ›„ 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.

๐Ÿ“ฑ What You Can Do: Residents in the affected areas should stay informed through weather apps and news updates, and prepare for possible travel disruptions.

๐Ÿ”œ Whatโ€™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.
