A winter storm has dumped several inches of snow on a band of southern states, triggering accidents on slippery roads and knocking out power to tens of thousands.

A winter storm has dumped several inches of snow on a band of southern states, triggering accidents on slippery roads and knocking out power to tens of thousands.


In northern Tennessee, about 20 vehicles were involved in crashes along a three-mile stretch of Interstate 75 during what authorities described as 'white out' conditions Sunday afternoon.

Police said a juvenile was seriously injured.

Dozens of wrecks were also reported in North Carolina as well as in Virginia, where the northbound lanes of Interstate 95 were shut down following a crash that critically injured one man.

Appalachian Power was reporting that 52,000 customers were without power Sunday night in central and southern Virginia, as well as West Virginia.

The storm system was expected to move off the Mid-Atlantic coast on Sunday night.

Flow around this system continued to draw moisture in from the Gulf of Mexico, producing strong thunderstorms capable of some intense rainfall around the region.

There is a slight chance that storms will turn severe across the Carolinas, southern Georgia and northern Florida.
Weather experts warn to expect strong and damaging winds, large hail, and two to three inches of rain to develop in areas of severe thunderstorms.
The northern side of this system will reach into the southern and central Appalachians, where snow showers are likely, due to cooler temperatures. Higher elevations have seen between three and six inches of snow.

All of the precipitation from the system is expected to end by sunrise Monday morning.
As sever weather sweeps the South, snow and rain continued in the West today, and four people were killed in two separate avalanches near Washington state ski resorts on Sunday.

Three skiers died when an avalanche occurred near Stevens Pass, in the Cascade Mountains northeast of Seattle, just after noon today, according to King County sheriff's Sergeant Cindi West.

Sergeant West said the deaths of three men, all reported to be in their thirties and forties, occurred in an out-of-bounds area near the local ski resort.

A 41-year-old Seattle man was also killed in an avalanche at the Alpental ski area while snowboarding out-of-bounds with friends.

A low pressure system continues moving eastward, making its way into the central Rockies.

Expect four to eight inches of snow across parts of Utah and western Colorado, while light snow showers will persist in the northern Rockies and intermountain West.
Temperatures in the lower 48 states ranged Saturday from a morning low of -7 degrees at Crane Lake, Minnesota, to a high of 82 degrees at Marathon, Florida.
