    Huge snowstorm in the midwest

    A massive and potent winter storm continues to grow stronger in the southern Plains.

    Parts of the Midwest will see a total of 6 and 12 inches of snow, mainly from northern Kansas and eastern Nebraska northeastward to Wisconsin and northern Michigan. Localized amounts of up to 16 inches are possible.

    Thunder may accompany the snow in some locations with rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour at times.

    Winds will howl overnight creating contribute to blizzard or near-blizzard conditions. Blizzard warnings have been issued for portions of southern Minnesota, Iowa and eastern Nebraska.

    Although the heaviest snow will have tapered off in this area by Wednesday, strong winds gusting to 40 and 50 mph will lead to plenty of blowing and drifting. Travel will be difficult or impossible with road closures likely.

    A mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected from central Kansas to northern Missouri, northern Illinois and southern Michigan. This will keep accumulations lower across this region including Chicago where 2 to 4 inches is expected. Some sleet could mix in at times up to Milwaukee.

    Rain and thunderstorms will impact the Ohio Valley and Southeast. Although instability is lacking, some severe storms are possible overnight in far southeast Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle.

    The wintry mess will spread into the Northeast overnight into Wednesday.

    As the moisture combines with cold air at the surface, a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain will develop over the Central Appalachians before changing to all rain.

    Ice accumulations will be the most significant (up to a quarter inch) from south-central Pennsylvania to eastern West Virginia and western Virginia.

    Snow transitioning to a mixture of sleet, freezing rain and rain will spread northward through New York and New England by early Wednesday Several inches of snow may accumulate before the transition occurs.

    Mostly rain, possibly heavy, will impact the I-95 corridor from Boston southward to Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Boston may start out with a little snow and some minor accumulations before transitioning to rain. The New York City area will wake up to heavy rain and gusty winds.

    Travel delays are likely throughout the Northeast for the morning commute.

    Very strong winds will engulf much of Midwest, Northeast and portions of the South through Wednesday night.

    High wind watches have been posted in the Ohio Valley and eastern Great Lakes. Gusts between 50 and 60 mph may down tree branches and cause some power outages.

    Stay tuned to The Weather Channel and weather.com for the latest on this powerful storm.


    It's funny cause we only have 1 inch of snow... but it's around 35F (2C) here anyways :p
