Winter Storms during Cold Season – Nature 48

We got first winter storm in early January this year. The storm brought freezing rains and snow to many states of USA.

The snowfall was approximately 5.1 cm (2 inches) per hour in several states such as:

- Nebraska
- South Dakota
- Minnesota

It was predicted in the coming days that winter storms will again visit several parts of USA.

As you might be know that severe storms due to a blast of cold air from Arctic region sometimes, and as one of important factors.

Temperature is expected to drop to F below zero or around 17 C minus, so much below the freezing point with might be more than a one feet snow.

Since winter storms cause temperature dropping and bring snow, and snow could cover many spots, thus very hazardous to walk or drive in this condition.

What do you think?
