Winter Storm Gail takes aim at the East Coast

December 15, 2020

A major nor'easter, named Winter Storm Gail, is expected to hit the East Coast Wednesday into Thursday. Forecasts call for heavy snow, strong winds and some coastal flooding in parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. A mix of sleet and freezing rain could occur as far south as western North Carolina and western Virginia.

Based on forecasts, this may become one of the most impactful December storms the Northeast has seen in recent years. It's expected to impact tens of millions of people and some of the nation's most important supply chain hubs. Significant travel disruption and road closures are likely along with power outages. Most locations should see improving weather conditions by the second half of Thursday.
