Winter Storm Stella Aims for the Northeast

After mild temperatures settled in over the past week, the Northeast is now bracing for Winter Storm Stella, which is forecast to hammer the region with blizzard conditions and travel problems.

Stella brought snow to the South this weekend but packed a bigger punch in parts of the Midwest Monday. In the morning hours, hundreds of flights were canceled at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and plows worked furiously to keep roads in decent shape.

Authorities responded to hundreds of accidents Sunday on snow-covered roads in Iowa and Minnesota, but no deaths were reported.

Sunday morning, parts of north Georgia, North Carolina and northern South Carolina saw snow from Stella, with most of the accumulations on grassy and elevated surfaces.

Snow was seen as far south as Columbia, South Carolina, Sunday morning. The National Weather Service said this was just the 17th March snow event dating to 1888.
