There have been more than 50 reports of tornadoes during this week’s outbreak. This type of event is caused by specific ingredients coming together in just the right way. Here’s a look at how tornado outbreaks happen.

Coast-to-coast storm to end with Northeast snowstorm

On the cold side of the system causing the severe weather in the South, a blinding blizzard has crippled parts of the northern Plains. Several inches of snow and a coating of ice have been reported across the region.

Now, the energy from this storm is helping to stir up another storm that will bring a little bit of everything to the Northeast from Thursday into the weekend. Parts of the I-95 corridor will likely see a freezing mix before the precipitation changes to rain. Interior sections of the region will see a longer-duration winter storm, piling up snow for some and coating others in ice.
