Transcript for Storms bring heavy snow and rain
We move to the storms causing problems on both coasts and major pileups in the midwest bringing heavy snow and rain. Ginger tracking the latest. Good morning, ginger. Good morning to you, George. Minnesota, I-35, southern Minnesota, a pileup with at least 26 vehicles, six semis. That's from a little burst of snow. You don't need a lot like interstate 80. Traffic backed up because you had that elk mountain snow and wind blowing through there. Now this morning we're already hearing reports of ice on the roadways, up 0.2 inch there. Winter weather advisories stretch all the way into Pennsylvania. What does that mean for you this morning? It means you could easily run into ice. Anywhere in purple if you are traveling interstate 40 or certainly anywhere through 81, you can see it right here on the icy roads. You have this moisture coming in. That's warm. It falls and the surface is colder than the air above it. It freezes on contact and you get a glaze of ice that will make some big messes. We could see tornadic activity, Tallahassee and mid-atlantic up to flood warnings and watches in New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Massachusetts and Maine. Thank you, ginger.
