Truckers to battle rain, wind, snow this Tuesday (forecast video)
Story and forecast by Nick Austin, Director of Weather Analytics and Senior Meteorologist @FreightWaves I
There is plenty of disruptive weather happening today, October 22, in several regions of the U.S. Resulting in delays for shippers and truckers should be minor/moderate. Driver safety will be the main concern.
Stormy mess in the East
Truckers will run into wet and stormy conditions on the I-81 and I-95 corridors, from the southern Appalachians to New England. The cold front that helped spawn tornadoes in Dallas, Texas Sunday night is moving through the eastern U.S. today and tonight. But the system isn’t quite as powerful as it was a couple of days ago.
SONAR Critical Events: Tuesday, October 22, 10:00 a.m. EDT
Rain may be heavy in some areas, but probably not heavy enough to cause much flash flooding. However, thunderstorms could produce severe winds, isolated tornadoes, and spots of hail from Jacksonville and southeastern Georgia to Raleigh, Virginia Beach, and the Delmarva Peninsula. The best chance for severe storms is from eastern North Carolina to near Norfolk, as shown in the FreightWaves SONAR Critical Events map above. The highest rain amounts – possibly one to two inches – will likely be from upstate New York into New England. The Northeast will gradually dry out tomorrow afternoon and evening, October 23. According to Nick Austin, Director of Weather Analytics and Senior Meteorologist @ FreightWaves.com and his article.
