CHICAGO — The first full day of winter brought a wild mix of weather across the United States on Sunday: ice and high wind in the Great Lakes area and New England, flooding and tornadoes in the South, snow in the Midwest, and record-shattering temperatures in the 60s and 70s along the mid-Atlantic.
The storms were blamed for at least 10 deaths across country, including five in Kentucky, three in Oklahoma, and one each in Arkansas and Mississippi.
Snow and ice knocked out power to 400,000 homes and businesses in Michigan, upstate New York and northern New England, and also left more than 400,000 people without electricity in eastern Canada. It could be days before the lights are back on everywhere. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
