A major winter storm with heavy snow, ice and a wintry mix will reach from the southern and central Plains to the Midwest and Northeast spanning Tuesday and Wednesday.
It will hit barely after some people had time to dig out from two prior storms in the Midwest and the Monday storm in the Northeast.
The storm will directly impact more than two dozen states and at least 100 million people with snow and/or ice. Travel delays and disruptions to daily activities are likely.
The storm has the potential to drop 6 inches or more of snow on portions of Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.
There is a long list of major cities that can receive enough snow to shovel and plow. These include Denver, St. Louis, Chicago, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Detroit, Boston, Scranton, Pa., Hartford, Conn., and Buffalo, N.Y.
