  • East coast of US including Florida braced for winter snow storm

Four people were reported killed in the southeastern states of North and SC, where icy roads sent vehicles skittering. But once the storm is gone, it will still leave high winds and cold temperatures in its wake.

More seasonable weather is expected to return early next week with temperatures in the high 30s and near 40s, he said. "The formation of this rapidly strengthening weather system is a process called bombogenesis, which creates what is known as a bomb cyclone".

"We think there are going to be scattered records broken for low temperatures", said Dan Peterson, adding how the weather service expects 28 major cities across New England, eastern NY and the mid-Atlantic states will have record low temperatures by dawn on Sunday.

"Currently, the main focus is assisting with transportation support and vehicles", the statement said.

Tallahassee, Florida, measured 0.1 inches of snow Wednesday morning, in the first measurable amount in the area since 1989, the National Weather Service said.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency in his state for 28 counties, and in North Carolina, Gov. Roy Cooper declared a state of emergency for all eastern and several central counties.

The storm is likely to bring winds between 65 km per hour and 95 km per hour, and around 12 inches of snow, CNN reported.

A 3-foot (0.9-metre) tidal surge flooded the area around Boston's historic Long Wharf with icy seawater.

Governor Andrew Cuomo warned: "Frigid temperatures are expected overnight, which should further complicate the situation" adding there had been a number of serious accidents.

In Gainesville, Fla., the National Weather Service reported that a mix of snow, freezing rain and sleet was possible for about 7 hours on Wednesday beginning at 3 a.m. Temperatures are expected to dip to 33 degrees.

"Anticipate travel and economic impacts today and tonight with accumulating snow and white-out conditions". United operates a large worldwide hub at Newark's Liberty global, where more than three-quarters of scheduled departures were grounded Thursday.

The Port Authority of NY and New Jersey, which runs the airport, said it was working with airlines and the Federal Aviation Administration to limit flights into Kennedy on Saturday "until there are adequate gates available to handle the backlog of flights due to recovery of flight schedules in the wake of Thursday's storm".

Power outages affected tens of thousands in the South.

CT governor Dannel P Malloy said more than 100 warming centres have been opened in 34 towns across the state.

More than 5,000 USA airline flights were canceled.

The Baltimore and Washington, D.C. areas should be spared from significant snow, Miller said, but parts of Maryland and Virginia bordering the Atlantic Ocean could get some fresh powder. Snow fell as far south as Florida on Wednesday.

Senators had only returned to the upper chamber Wednesday, facing a series of critical votes in the coming weeks, including on funding to prevent a government shutdown and spending cuts.
