BRUTAL WINTER INTENSIFIES: NWS: Travel ‘Impossible’, Psychiatrist: ‘Tremendous Amount’ Of Seasonal Affect Disorder
February 12th, 2014
Winter Storm Pax continued its second wave of wintry weather Wednesday morning, dumping freezing rain and sleet across a wide area that could experience catastrophic conditions for a prolonged period of time.
“Winds are gusting as over 30 miles per hour in some locations, and that combined with the ice on the trees is really ramping up the power outages,” said Tom Niziol, winter weather expert for The Weather Channel. “I expect to see them become more and more widespread throughout the day.”

The National Weather Service also warned to “expect significant – crippling – ice totals from Atlanta eastward along the I-20 corridor.” In the Carolinas, snow fell Wednesday in areas expecting to see as much as 18 inches of accumulation from Pax.
