CATO Hits The East Coast: Massive Weather Alert For Wednesday!

By Susan Duclos, via All News PipeLine

The Weather Channel is issuing a massive weather alert, specifically important to holiday travelers as "heavy snowfall rates caused by fast-rising air associated with the low-pressure system," with reports indicating that there will be "travel chaos," for the east coast of the United States.

Weather Channel's lead meteorologist states ""If this was any other day of the year it would be a pretty big storm but nothing too out of the ordinary," then adds "But it’s come at one of the worst possible times, the day before Thanksgiving. It’s going to be very, very tricky for anyone planning to travel today."

Via the National Weather Service:

An active weather pattern is in place across the eastern U.S. for the middle of the week. For the East coast, a developing nor'easter will cause havoc for Thanksgiving travelers from the Carolinas to New England. This feature is a wave of low pressure that developed along a cold front over the Gulf of Mexico, and is lifting northeastward. Although the strongest winds will likely remain offshore, widespread precipitation is expected from Florida to Maine. Rain is expected for coastal areas, and significant snow from the central Appalachians to into inland parts of the Northeast U.S., with the greatest snowfall expected for the higher elevations of New England.

The Weather Channel give it's forcast for Wednesday and Wednesday night:

In any case, while the snow/rain line makes a big difference for drivers, major airports are likely to be in bad shape regardless. Either rain or snow, combined with the low clouds and blustery winds sure to accompany the storm, will likely cause severe delays at already-crowded airports up and down the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast coast.
The fast-moving storm will keep booking to the northeast, wrapping cold air southward on its back side. This should allow the rain/snow line to advance southeastward across the Northeast Megalopolis, but by this point precipitation will be diminishing in intensity.
Snowfall should quickly come to an end from the New York City area southward before midnight.
Farther north, snow will continue over much of New England into the evening, ending from west to east later Wednesday night.

Ferguson grand jury renders no charges against Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown.

While only one of three livestream videos from Monday night's coverage is still active, videos and photos of the reactions of protesters are coming out fast and furiously and it is ugly. • At least a dozen Ferguson businesses burn according to the AP, as KSDK5 reports that firefighters were battling 25 structure fires. • The St. Louis airport was briefly closed due to gunfire, those restrictions have reportedly been lifted.  • Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadali (D) says "This is St. Loius's race war."  • The AP reports that rocks, bottles and gunfire erupted as police fired tear gas from armored cars to attempt to disperse the violent crowds. • CNN and Fox News reporters were attacked live on-air. • An MSNBC ancor was chased off air by gunfire. • CNN's Chris Cuomo Gets Hit By Tear Gas In Ferguson.

That is a small sample of what is happening in Ferguson, Missouri, but protests and violence is also being seen across the country; •  NYPD police chief and his officers are sprayed with fake blood at Ferguson grand jury decision protest. • Police were injured as protesters hit NYC. In Seattle protesters hurled bottles, rocks... reports of vandalism as cops respond with pepper spray and percussion grenades. • ABC News headlines with "Americans Rally Across the Country After Ferguson Decision."
