Snowstorm blankets Deep South before heading northeast

A major winter storm brought snow to Southern states from Texas to North Carolina Friday, with accumulation as much as seven inches in Texas and six inches in parts of Mississippi and Georgia. The unusual snowfall led to widespread closures of schools, government offices, and roads, as well as power outages and delayed flights.

The storm is expected to move up the East Coast over the weekend, with snow falling from Maryland to New England. The highest accumulation Saturday is anticipated in the upper Mid-Atlantic region, while Lake Effect snow could lead to whiteout conditions further west.
