A storm bringing heavy precipitation was pushing eastward across the
Deep South with rain and thunderstorms on its southern flank and snow
and sleet on its northern flank. A separate area of snow was pushing
eastward over the central Plains with rain on its southwestern edge.
Snow was exiting Maine. Areas of snow were expanding over the central
and northern Rockies and High Plains. Rain was converging on western
Washington state. As cold air was easing up a bit in the Northeast
today, a new batch of arctic air was emerging over the North Central
states. This new cold air will expand into the South and East in the
wake of the storm Wednesday night and Thursday. Mild air in the West
will be chopped down from north to south into the weekend as rain and
snow become more extensive.


A Dusty Week Recalled...

 While the late 1970s may be noted for their cold winters, the last
week of February 1977 brought far-reaching dust from the Plains to
the East. Dust reduced the visibility as low as a mile from eastern
Virginia to Florida, spanning the 24th to the 28th. The dust
originated from the High Plains on the 22nd and 23rd, when gusts to
over 100 mph buffeted Guadalupe Pass, Texas, White Sands, New Mexico,
eastern Colorado and Sherman County, Kansas.


 Power outages were occurring in Cass County, Texas, during
Wednesday midday.

 A buildup of ice was occurring on bridges in Sharkey and Issaquena
counties in Mississippi, during Wednesday midday.

 Blinding snow contributed to a multiple-vehicle accident near
Bangor, Maine, during Wednesday morning.
