Accumulating snowfall can be found across the Ohio Valley, stretching into the southern Appalachians. More accumulating snowfall can be found all along the Front Range of the Rockies.

Another wintry system spins up across the southern plains, producing mixed precip for many and accumulating snowfall for some. That snow will have the best chance of accumulating across western Kansas and Oklahoma, as well as across eastern Colorado. More snow can be found across New England.
The 2020 hurricane season officially ended at midnight last night. That doesn’t mean there won’t be any more storms, as Ma Nature sometimes ignores our deadlines (ha). I would go as far as to say that the season is over….for the most part. Here are the numbers. What a historic season it has been!
And with that, the sun set on another hurricane season yesterday. Bon voyage, Hurricane Season 2020!
