At least 11 people have died as a result of severe storms sweeping across parts of the southern US, bringing high winds and heavy rain. Deaths were reported in the states of Alabama, Louisiana and Texas. Hundreds of thousands of people have been affected by power cuts as a result of the storms, while homes have been destroyed and roads flooded. Several tornado warnings were in place on Saturday, with Alabama said to be most at risk. The storms have also brought the threat of ice and snow to parts of the Midwest. Hundreds of flights were cancelled on Saturday at Chicago's two main airports. BBC

Hurricane-force wind gusts, golf-ball-sized hail and 2 to 5 inches (5-13 cm) of snow fell on Friday night and early Saturday as storms pushed from Texas through the Southeast and Great Lakes into Maine, the National Weather Service (NWS) said. More snow with accumulations between 6 to 12 inches was expected through Sunday in parts of Illinois, Michigan, northern New York and New England. “The real danger comes from the wind and ice accumulation,” said NWS forecaster Bob Oravec in College Park Maryland. More than half an inch of ice was predicted to cake highways and roads across the South and Northeast from Saturday night to Sunday morning, he said. “The ice and wind will make driving treacherous, and trees can snap and knock out power and do other damage,” he said. Reuters
Storm after storm to hit the Pacific North West this week. A very busy week is instore along the Pacific North West, many storms are expected to filter in Arctic air. While the mountain ranges of the Pacific Northwest have already received feet of snow this month, a blast of cold air could bring snowfall down to the valley floors in the region early in the week ahead, possibly including Seattle and Portland, Oregon. Weather.com

The North Atlantic doesn’t want to stop at all this winter – wave after wave is developing intense surface cyclones and powerful windstorms. Yet another violent windstorm is expected to push towards western Europe, affecting Ireland and Scotland with extremely severe winds through Sunday night and Monday. Major swell and high waves with potentially being up to 15 meters will push towards the coastal western Ireland and Scotland as well! The pattern responsible for this another rapid cyclogenesis indicates an elongated upper-level trough over the southwest central and eastern Europe while a large long-wave trough dominates North Atlantic and northern Europe. Through the late Sunday, the trough begins to significantly deepen over the North Atlantic while moving towards the British Isles and the Faroe Islands on Monday. Extreme Weather Europe

I find it very interesting that the past two storms that brought such concern were named Ezekiel and Isaiah.

The erratic jet streams are obviously being steered. Nothing short of weather warfare from military industrial complex. Man playing God, controlling nature, is disaster in the making.
