Winter storm to roar from Texas to Virginia

Now it’s the South’s turn to get in on the snowy “fun.”

A rare southern winter storm is forecast to bring ice and snow all the way from southern Texas to southern Virginia later Tuesday and into Wednesday.

“Very hazardous travel is likely across a long swath of the South … in the Tuesday to Wednesday timeframe,” reported Weather Channel meteorologist Nick Wiltgen.

“A band of snow, sleet, and freezing rain is expected to materialize by Tuesday afternoon near the central Gulf Coast, and become heavier over eastern North Carolina and into South Carolina, with very cold air in place,” according to National Weather Service meteorologist David Hamrick.
