February 15 According to a report from the Chinese website of the United States, the Weather Forecast Center of the National Weather Service said that 150 million people across the United States were under the winter storm weather warning on the morning of the 14th local time.
South Central, which had just experienced the threat of a deadly storm last week, is about to be hit hard by another strong storm system on the 16th.
“For residents of southeastern Texas, southern Oklahoma, northern Louisiana and southern Arkansas, this may be the worst winter weather they have ever encountered in their lives.” CNN meteorologist Derek Van Dam said.
The forecast center said that winter storms entering the area on the 14th caused parts of the southern part of the state to issue a winter storm warning “for the first time in a decade”.
Last week’s winter storm brought freezing rain and freezing bad weather to the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas, killing at least nine people in car accidents.
The center said that snow is expected to fall from New Mexico to the Mississippi Valley on the 14th, and ice will be on the Texas coast to the Tennessee Valley.
“The snow and snow that will build up on the 15th will be impressive, stretching from southern Texas.” The Forecast Center added.
Heavy snow on the 15th will also spread to most of the lower Mississippi River, the Ohio Valley and even the northeast.”
As much as 12 inches of snow could fall in parts of central Oklahoma by the 16th, according to the center. 8 inches of snow could fall from eastern Texas and the Ohio Valley to the northeast.
The center added that up to half an inch of ice from the lower Mississippi Valley to the Tennessee Valley may cause poor travel conditions, resulting in damage such as power outages and damage to trees.
Van Dam said that from the morning of the 14th to the morning of the 16th, more than 140 record low temperatures in the United States are expected to be broken.
More than 55 million people have been under the wind chill warning from southern North Dakota to Texas, from western Indiana to Montana.
As the south-central region is hit by cold weather and ice and snow, another storm will cover the northwest and northern Rocky Mountains on the 15th.
In addition, a snowstorm has brought more than a year of snow to Seattle.
According to the National Weather Service in Seattle, the city dropped about 8.9 inches on the 13th, the 12th day in 125 years.
