Peak of major winter blast to begin across most of the country

National Weather Service issues Winter Storm Warning for Charlottesville-Albemarle for third weekend in a row Winter Storms Across The Country Bring Snow And Ice To Millions Of Americans
Noah Ferguson | 14 February, 2021, 22:44

Wind Chill Advisory is up for much of the viewing area.

Almost every part of the U.S.is going to seeing risky weather over the next week.

The high temperature in Portland is near 32 degrees on Sunday and will remain below freezing through the night, but temperatures should warm up to a high of 37 degrees on Monday. We are still several days away from this second event so the forecast can and will likely change.

This upcoming pattern for the next week is the type where I recommend being sure you have adequate ice melt on hand. Freezing rain falls as a liquid and accumulates when the ground is cold. The Winter Storm Warning will go into effect at 6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 14, and expire at noon Tuesday, Feb. 16.

Charlottesville has faced a number of winter storms that brought primarily snow to the region in the past few weeks but has not seen significant icing since mid-December when trees were toppled and more than 4,000 people in Albemarle County lost power.

The major winter blast that is gripping the nation will reach its peak beginning today and lasting through much of the week with two major storms to track along with the Arctic air surging into the southern U.S.

SUNDAY NIGHT: Off-and-on freezing rain will continue overnight Sunday into early Monday, which will lead to slick spots on roadways.

There is another pause in the action Wednesday.

Temperatures will stay in the high 20s, the NWS said. Not a lot of melting, but not an excessive cold either.

Also by Monday morning, a heavy wintry mix will move across Houston into Louisiana and Mississippi.

The bulk of the precipitation begins to work out of here by Monday afternoon/evening, but the threats and hazards will be far from over.

As you can see by the graphic forecasters believe wintry conditions could create a problem from the Texas line east to Morgan City and all other points to the north of that line. While not all varieties of birds have flipped into their spring song, the sounds of spring will only continue to grow over the next couple of weeks, and while the weather may still be wintery, nature is taking an excuse from the added light and quickly moving into spring.
