Historic Ice Storm Immobilizes Ground, Air Travel in the South

•, By Brian Lada
 The event could be the worst ice storm for parts of the South in more than 10 years.
One batch of snow, sleet, rain and freezing rain affected the South Monday into Tuesday and caused hundreds of flight delays in the region.

As of Wednesday morning the number of flights have been canceled has swelled to more than 2,000 at Atlanta International Airport alone.

Another batch of snow and ice will hit many of the same areas Wednesday and into Wednesday night.

According to Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski, "For many areas east of I-59 and near and north of I-20, this part of the storm will be much worse than the first."

Much colder air pressed southward into these areas Tuesday night, setting the stage for major wintry problems on Wednesday.

The wintry precipitation on Wednesday afternoon will focus on an area stretching from northern Georgia to central and upstate South Carolina, and much of North Carolina and Virginia. Some snow and ice will also reach into portions Tennessee.
