As if the polar vortex isn’t enough, sudden whiteouts called snow squalls are causing problems for the Northeast.

The phenomenon can create deadly highway conditions, as it suddenly reduces visibility and creates slick roads. It can “make roads a sheet of ice in minutes,” AccuWeather chief meteorologist, Bernie Rayno, says.
