Travel Alert February 2020: Winter Weather to Affect Northeastern United States and Southeastern Canada

A winter storm — which has tracked across the United States and affected much of the country along the way — is expected to usher in snow from northwestern North Carolina all the way to Newfoundland and Labrador; and from southeastern Indiana to eastern Québec.

Up to 24 inches of snow can potentially accumulate in local areas of much of southeastern Québec, central and northern New York, and northern portions of Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and New Brunswick — all of which includes Syracuse, Burlington, Québec, and Montréal. Gusty winds and whiteout conditions are possible in these areas.

Meanwhile, torrential rains, thunderstorms, tornado watches. flood watches, and flood warnings have been plaguing the southeastern United States and the east coast of the United States from the same storm system. Expect travel to be interrupted in these regions as well.
