Big Snowstorm Hits Texas, Tracks Toward Northeast

Wednesday February 24, 2010

A winter storm that caused multiple traffic collisions in Texas on Tuesday is heading toward the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, where it could dump a half-foot of snow on the already snow-drenched region, news services reported.

Police reported several collisions and vehicles sliding off the road along Interstate 20 Tuesday, the Abilene, Texas, Reporter-News said. Bridges were frozen along the highway, and some areas had up to 5 inches of snow by Tuesday night.

When the storm hits the mid-Atlantic late Wednesday night into Thursday it could drop up to 6 inches of snow in Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. In Baltimore and much of Maryland, the snow fall total is forecast to be closer to 5 inches.

The mid-Atlantic is still recovering from record-breaking back-to-back storms two weeks ago.

The storm may bypass miss the Washington area, the Washington Post reported. The chance of 2 to 4 inches of snow there is about 50%, with a higher probability in the western part of the metropolitan area, the Post said.
