NATIONAL SUMMARY Snow departed the mid-Atlantic yesterday and shifted across eastern New England, coming to an end during the evening hours. Several inches of snow fell from Kentucky to Maine with the highest snow totals stretching from east-central Pennsylvania to western Connecticut. Rain fell south of the snow, mainly during the early morning hours before being followed up by a dry afternoon. One thunderstorm that rumbled across Florida on the southern extent of the system during the early morning hours spun up a brief tornado near the town of Englewood, but did not lead to any injuries or fatalities. A system moving into the northern Plains spread showers of rain and snow over the region while the southern Plains remained dry. Gusty winds accompanied the disturbance with winds gusting up to 45 mph in Rapid City, South Dakota. Dry weather was experienced across a majority of the West Coast with temperatures running above normal. Santa Ana winds blew over parts of Southern California with the strongest gusts being strong enough to bring down trees. SPECIAL WEATHER Freezing Rain Across the Deep South...... Freezing rain coated parts of Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas on this date in 2008, resulting in numerous accidents. One person was killed in a car accident in Grenada County, Mississippi, as a result of the ice. Another fatality was reported near Cherokee, Alabama, due to slick travel on a highway bridge.
