The major winter storm that is heading to the Northeast is blanketing areas from north Florida to the Carolinas and Virginia with a mixture of freezing rain, sleet, and snow, creating dangerous travel conditions.

The storm is likely to set records in multiple cities including the one-day snowfall records in both Savannah, Georgia, and Charleston, South Carolina, as well as in the latter state’s Lowcountry.

Winter weather advisories are in effect for much of the south including Jacksonville, Florida, the Raleigh-Durham metropolitan area, and as far south as Gainesville, Florida.

In addition to icy road conditions, the severe winter weather is causing numerous flight delays. As of 10:30 a.m. EST, over 417 flights in North America have been cancelled and over 2,100 have been delayed, according to FlightStats, a flight tracking service. Almost 10,000 flights were delayed yesterday.
