Winter's Wrath Unleashed

3:30 P.M. ET 1/5/2005


Kevin Roth, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



A major winter storm reaches from the southern Plains to the Northeast coast with snow, sleet, freezing rain and heavy rain. Travel is especially tough from northern Oklahoma through eastern Kansas, western and central Missouri and into the Ohio Valley due to significant ice accumulations. Ice accumulations through tonight will be heaviest from central Indiana east to northeastern Pennsylvania vallies. To the north of the ice is a band of moderate snowfall. Sections of southeastern Nebraska and west-central Iowa picked up 6 to 12 inches of snow by early Wednesday afternoon. Additional accumulations of 6 to 10 inches are possible from eastern Iowa east to southern Michigan by Thursday morning.


Heavy rain has been falling from southern Missouri northeast to southern Pennsylvania with this system. Flooding has been occurring across Missouri and the southern Ohio Valley due to the heavy rain falling on already saturated ground. Additional rainfall of 1 to 3 inches is possible by Thursday morning from southern Illinois northeast to southern Pennsylvania continuing the flood threat.


This system should push through the Northeast during the day Thursday producing snow over northern New England, a wintry mix of snow, sleet and ice across southern New England, central and southern New York state and the northern tier of Pennsylvania, and locally heavy rainfall from New York City south through southern Pennsylvania, southeast Ohio and northern Virginia. Western edge snow should wind down across the Great Lakes.
