Storm threatens travel on several interstates


If you’re headed to the South and Southeast between now and Monday, be on the lookout for what one forecast says will be “debilitating snow, damaging ice, and flooding rain.”

Accuweather says a major storm could deliver up to at least a foot of snow in parts of North Carolina, West Virginia and Virginia. And, it could include substantial sleet and freezing rain along the coast. Heavy rain is expected from Texas to South Carolina and down to the Gulf Coast.

Accuweather advises:

“Travel along a large portion of I-26, I-64, I-77 and I-81 in the region may be dangerous to impossible as the storm ramps up and in the storm’s wake for a time. Portions of I-40, I-75, and I-85 are likely to be icy and/or snow-covered during the storm with difficult to dangerous travel.”
