Winter Storm And Blizzard Warnings Issued

Right around Christmas Day and the weekend, millions of people were affected by bad weather conditions in the United States.

According to the website FlightAware, “Several flights were either delayed or cancelled and vehicular traffic was affected due to winter stroms, blizzards, and dense fog.”

The traffic website further said, “157 flights within, into or out of the US has been cancelled and 2111 were delayed as of late afternoon non Monday due to the weather disruptions.”

The National Weather Services (NWS) said, “the conditions are expected to worsen across the country.” The agency has further issued warnings about winter storms and blizzards as weather advisories to 10 states, namely, Maine, Alaska, Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Oregon, North Dakota, Washington, and South Dakota.

NWS forecast said, “A severe storm is expected to bring in heavy snowfall and blizzard conditions across the US.”

They further said, “A major winter storm will continue to impact parts of the northern/central Plains and Upper Midwest with heavy snow, freezing rain, and strong winds through Tuesday night. The combination of heavy snow and strong winds (gusts up to 55 mph) will produce blizzard conditions for central South Dakota into parts of Nebraska, Kansas, and Colorado resulting in difficult to near impossible travel.”

“Travel conditions in the Plains, Midwest, and South were predicted to be affected through Christmas Day. While a White Christmas may be exciting for those nestled at home, the heavy snowfall rates and reduced visibilities due to blowing snow will make for hazardous, to even impossible, travel conditions,” said NWS.
