Fortnite ‘Ice Storm Event’ Date & Time, in-game TV Weather Warning

Update: Check out video of the Ice King Event below!

Ice Storm in-game event begins Saturday, January 19th at 2pm EST.

In-game televisions in Fortnite Battle Royale are now displaying a countdown, stating Weather Warning.  The timer on the TVs is counting down to tomorrow, Saturday, 1/19 at 2 PM EST. 

Similar to the Fortnitemares Challenges when we saw monsters spawning on the island, the Ice Storm will bring us frost monsters, big and small, melee and ranged.  A new group of challenges will have players killing hundreds of monsters and Ice Shards (the monsters spawns).

Update: 24 hours until the live in-game event and orb has began to change and glow, see below!

And now we can see that the lines around the orb actually create a clock, with lines being removed every 2 hours.  Once 24 hours has passed, all 12 lines will disappear and something will happen tomorrow, Saturday, 2pm EST!

As for the in-game event itself, not much is known besides this leaked footage of the Ice King inside, with something glowing in his hands.
