A dangerous winter storm is expected to pummel the eastern half of the U.S. on Sunday and Monday, bringing the entire bag of weather conditions, including snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain. The biggest target will be set from the Appalachians to the Interstate 95 corridor, but messy weather will cast a wider net. The winter storm comes on the heels of another winter storm that brought as much as 4 inches of sleet and freezing rain to the Dallas metro area on Friday, and 6 to 12 inches of snow in the Ohio Valley. That storm was part of a cold front that has since stalled from central Texas to the southern Mid-Atlantic. In the wake of the storm, arctic air is spilling southward, producing cold temperatures from Texas to the Canadian border. Meanwhile, a fresh area of low pressure will come together later today in the Rio Grande Valley. The storm will start to march northeastward along the stalled front, advancing through the Deep South and toward the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. As it presses northward, it will drag its pool of warm air with it, which will do battle with the Arctic air mass already in place. The first area to experience the impact of this storm will be in northern and western North Carolina, where the cold air is weak enough that it will be overtopped by the warmer air late this evening and early Sunday morning. The result of this will be an extended period of freezing rain, and significant icing. Ice Storm Warnings and Freezing Rain Advisories stretch from the southern Blue Ridge to the western Raleigh-Durham metro area, including Greensboro, Asheville, and Durham, N.C. Here, one-quarter to one-half inch of freezing rain will coat everything, including sidewalks, trees, powerlines, and roads in an icy glaze. This is likely to lead to power outages and will likely make roads impassable on Sunday. The good news is that the ice will change over to just rain as temperatures finally rise above freezing late Sunday evening. As the storm makes its way northeastward along the stalled-out front, a wave of snow will spread across the Interstate 95 corridor on Sunday into the Mid-Atlantic. The snow will quickly change over to sleet by midday Sunday, but not before accumulating one or two inches deep. That will only be the start of the storm here, as the warmer air surging along the low-pressure system will also force a changeover to freezing rain, setting the stage for an ice storm. While the major cities such as Philadelphia, Washington and Baltimore may see enough of a warm, onshore wind to keep icing to a minimum, areas further inland won`t be so lucky. Between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning, colder valleys of Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania could see 0.20 to 0.40 inches of ice, weighing down trees and power lines and turning the area roads into a skating rink. Winter Storm Watches and Warnings are in place from the Appalachians to central Maryland, and southward across central Virginia. The changeover to rain will be a bit more delayed here, with icing lasting in the coldest spots through early Monday morning. Lastly will be the Northeast, where the storm will primarily be a snow-and-sleet storm, with 3 to 5 inches of the white stuff falling between Sunday evening and Monday afternoon. Short periods of freezing rain will make driving treacherous as well. Even those missing out on the worst of the storm won`t completely avoid it. Portions of the Ohio and Tennessee valleys, digging out from Friday`s snowstorm, will see a bit of snow and sleet from the upcoming winter blast. Already, the greater Nashville and Cincinnati areas are under a Winter Weather Advisory.
