AccuWeather meteorologists have been monitoring for a parade of storms to sweep across the country throughout the middle of the month, and the next one in line threatens to deliver a dose of wintry weather to more than 100 million Americans over a three- to four-day period. 

A cross-country storm is set to bring enough snow to shovel and plow along a stretch of about 2,000 miles from the Colorado Rockies to Down East Maine with a wintry mix and rain to the south and pockets of ice along the way.

NEW YORK CITY — A hazardous snow storm is headed toward New York City and expected to hit early Wednesday morning, forecasters warned. 

The city could get up to three inches of snow between 3 a.m. and 11 a.m., causing slippery conditions and slowing morning commutes, the National Weather Service predicts. 

New York City issued a snow alert Tuesday and officials urged commuters to take mass transit during the storm.

“It’s going to be a very messy commute in the morning,” said Sanitation commissioner Kathryn Garcia. “We hope you won’t be driving.”

‘Bomb Cyclone’ Winter Storm Will Hit U.S. As Thanksgiving Nears, Forecasters Warn


Kiwi.com - Book Cheap Flights!

Hurricane-force winds, blizzard conditions, heavy snowfall — and a “bomb cyclone” on the West Coast: Those are the dire predictions of weather forecasters, who are warning Thanksgiving travelers to be cautious and prepare for delays as two powerful back-to-back storms hit the western and central U.S. this week.

The National Weather Service’s U.S. forecast map is draped in alarming shades of pink, purple and red, reflecting winter storm warnings that are in effect from California to Michigan. And the bad weather is expected to last: The winter storm warning posted by the NWS office in Las Vegas will remain in effect from 5 p.m. PT Tuesday through 4 a.m. PT Friday.

The warnings come as Denver and other cities are already coping with heavy snowfall from a winter storm that is hitting the southern and central Plains region. The NWS office in Cheyenne, Wyo., reported getting more than 12 inches of snow by midday on Tuesday. But elevated areas west of Fort Collins, Colo., reported more than 30 inches.

That storm is still developing and is expected to dump up to a foot of snow in a broad region by Thursday as it moves from the Plains to the upper Mississippi Valley, across the upper Great Lakes and into northern Maine, the NWS says. It adds that heavy snow could affect travelers at airports from Denver to Minneapolis-St. Paul.

Bad News: Several Major Storms Are Threatening to Ruin Your Thanksgiving Plans

Kelly O’Sullivan, Prevention

We hate to rain on your Thanksgiving Day parade, but next week’s weather forecast does not sound good. 

According to AccuWeather, at least three major storms are expected to hit various parts of the United States before the upcoming holiday. Parts of the Midwest and Northeast could see a “wintry mix” of snow and rain as early as this weekend and it will only get worse from there. 

Beginning on Tuesday, a “significant and potentially very disruptive” storm could deliver heavy snow across a 1,200-mile stretch of the heartland. This winter weather is predicted to spread from Colorado all the way up to parts of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan by midweek. It’s also possible for “blizzard conditions,” including high winds and low visibility, to develop in the Upper Midwest on Wednesday—which is the peak time for Thanksgiving travel.

Hurricane Lorenzo, the juggernaut that is churning in the Atlantic Ocean isn’t a threat to land … for now

www.VisitorsCoverage.com

 Brian Lada,AccuWeather

An intense hurricane is gaining strength over the Atlantic Ocean, but the storm is going largely unnoticed due to its remote location.

Hurricane Lorenzo, currently spinning over the central Atlantic, first became a hurricane on Wednesday, but by Thursday afternoon, it had rapidly intensified into a major Category 4 hurricane.

On Thursday evening, Lorenzo was packing maximum sustained winds of 145 mph, but AccuWeather Meteorologists believe that it could continue to strengthen and eventually become a Category 5 storm with winds exceeding 157 mph.

Although major hurricanes like Lorenzo are not rare in the Atlantic Basin, where it is located relative to its mighty force is very unusual.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – A maroon Jeep was apparently marooned Thursday in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, before the arrival of Hurricane Dorian.

The vehicle’s license plate appeared to have been removed, and the specific model of the car was not immediately known.

Police on the scene ordered observers to leave the area Thursday afternoon as high tide approached. No rescue attempt was visible, and there was no indication anyone was injured or missing.

Myrtle Beach Police Department Lt. Mark Jackson said a call about the car was received after 7 a.m. Thursday. He said there was no occupant on scene when police arrived, and he said he had no information on the vehicle’s owner or the circumstances of its apparent abandonment.

Disney Cruise Lines denies stranding employees on Bahamian island during Hurricane Dorian

MSC Cruises

Elise Solé, Yahoo Lifestyle

Disney Cruise Line says it did not strand employees on a Bahamian island during Hurricane Dorian, blaming Twitter for false rumors.

Over the weekend, as the storm hit the Bahamas in what Prime Minister Hubert Minnis called “a historic tragedy,” claiming five lives on the Abaco Islands and flooding neighborhoods, outrage brewed on Twitter about conditions on the private island Castaway Cay. The Disney Cruise Lines port located 30 miles from Abaco is home to 60 full-time employees.

“My sister is stuck in the middle of a Cat 5 hurricane. We were told they would evacuate and they didn’t. Left them behind!! Why??,” Twitter user Meg Green wrote in a deleted-tweet, according to the Miami Times.

Later, she reportedly tweeted, “Remember that time [Disney Cruises] left 97 employees on a tiny island in a Catagory 5 hurricane? I do.”

Dramatic video shows the “race against time” as a group of people in the Bahamas swam through raging floodwaters as the eye of Hurricane Dorian passed overhead.

ABC News correspondent Marcus Moore and his crew captured the footage as the eye of the Category 5 storm moved over the Abaco Islands Sunday.

“Things had calmed down and we were able to go outside for the first time, and started seeing people coming out of homes that had been destroyed in the area,” Moore said on “Good Morning America” on Monday.

That’s when he saw a group several hundred yards away.

“We could hear them screaming and our producer — he was separated from them by this rushing, this torrent of water — he had to swim,” Moore said. “Because it was really a race against time, because we were in the eye of the storm. So it was calm, but we knew that within minutes that the rest of the storm would come through and it would be intense once again.”
