Residents of the Northeast and the Midwest are still recovering from winter storm Hercules. An arctic blast blanked the area with abnormally cold temperature the day after the storm. Victims are experiencing a brief respite from the winter cold, but the relief comes at a day before the National weather service predicts winter storm Ion will hit Terre Haute and the Wabash Valley.

The National Weather service issued a winter storm watch for Terre Haute, Vigo County, and most of th.e Wabash Valley late Friday night. The watch will last from 1 in the morning on Sunday until 1 am Monday. Snowfall should start at midnight on Sunday, according to weather.com.

The area's grocery stores, the city's two Wal-Marts and the Sam’s Club experienced a brisk business as people prepared for the coming storm. Shoppers filled their carts with milk, bread and the occasional case of beer. Many of them hoped to use the warm before the stoprm to acquire needed supplies.
Although the storm brings warmer temperatures with it, the respite from the cold will not last. When Ion leaves the area, a blast of arctic air will take its place. The arctic air will plunge the Midwest bak into the bitter cold.
