Winter storm maintains a tight grip on parts of the U.S.+ READ ARTICLE
A pocket of the U.S. is facing bitter cold and high-force winds on Sunday as yet another winter storm makes its way across the Northeast.
Residents in the New England area continue to remain under blizzard warnings, with parts of Massachusetts already under 2 ft. of new snow, according to the Weather Channel. Over 98 in. of snow has fallen in the Boston area this year alone, according to CBS Boston meteorologist Eric Fisher — it’s second snowiest season on record.
States between Connecticut and North Carolina are under high-wind warnings; damage has already been reported in the Carolinas, where 200,000 reportedly lost power. Illinois, Michigan and Indiana residents are digging their way out of a blanket of snow that fell overnight.
Unfortunately for residents, the National Weather Service says the bitter cold is expected to linger in the Northeast at least until Monday. The high in most areas will be below freezing while the wind chill is set to remain below zero.
Late Sunday, those in states between Oklahoma and northern Georgia can expect a “wintry mix” leading into Monday.
