Snow and rain will continue to create hazardous travel across the northeastern U.S. on Tuesday.
Snow will turn to a wintry mix in central Pennsylvania and central New York where icy roads caused multiple accidents early Tuesday morning. Tens of thousands are without power in North Carolina after ice downed trees and power lines.
As rain continues to fall throughout the day, urban flooding may occur from Washington, D.C., to Boston, AccuWeather Meteorologist Brandon Zapolski said. Any standing water could freeze up on roadways as temperatures drop back to near freezing into Tuesday night.
As the Northeast continues to deal with ice and slipper travel, severe storms blasted parts of the south Tuesday morning. Possible tornadoes were reported in Florida and North Carolina.
