After days of snow and ice, Winter Storm Thor departed the East Coast late Thursday night. However, its impacts are still being felt in the Northeast and South as precipitation from Thor turned to ice overnight, prompting several school closures and delays.
In Lexington, Kentucky, Thor set an all-time two-day snowstorm record, which had stood since Jan. 26-27, 1943. Parts of Kentucky have picked up over 20 inches of snow from Thor.
“Winter Storm Thor has moved off the East Coast, leaving behind bitterly cold air in its wake across the Midwest, Northeast and South,” said weather.com meteorologist Linda Lam.
At least 11 fatalities have been contributed to Thor.
