"‘Historic’ Storm Ices Atlanta as Northeast Faces Snow"

"A potentially historic winter storm threatens to coat Georgia with ice, knocking out power and grounding thousands of planes, before bringing snow to Northeastern cities including Washington and New York."

"New York may get 1-3 inches (3-8 centimeters) of snow tonight, and Washington as much as 4 inches, according to the latest update by the National Weather Service at 6:51 a.m. in New York. Atlanta is forecast to receive as much as half an inch of ice today.

'When the snow comes, it is going to come in fast and furious,' said Brett Anderson, a senior meteorologist at AccuWeather Inc. in State College, Pennsylvania. 'The initial batch of snow that comes in before any changeover is going to be quite heavy.'"

Brian K. Sullivan and Andrew Reierson report for Bloomberg News February 12, 2014.
