According to Bryan Putnam of the meteorological service, “the concern for flash flooding and severe storms persists for the South Wednesday.”
Heavy snowfall and storm conditions batter the north.
Putnam predicted that the Northern High Plains, where the snow started falling on Tuesday, may receive up to 30 inches of snow by Thursday.

Travel would continue to be “significantly” impacted by the blizzard conditions and strong, windy northerly winds of up to 55 mph, he warned. Expect several routes, including sections of the main interstates I-80, I-90, and I-94, to stay closed for an extended period of time, he warned.

Winter will intensify in the Northeast as the week draws to a close, with additional snow and freezing rain possible, according to Putnam. In the upcoming days, a fuller image of that scenario is anticipated.
