A large storm will threaten to disrupt travel and daily routines with heavy snow and gusty winds across the Midwestern United States from Monday through to Tuesday, reports Accuweather.
To the south of the snow zone, a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain can create slick road conditions from the mid-Mississippi Valley, including around St. Louis, to the central Appalachians.
On Monday morning, the snow will spread eastward and threaten travel across the mid-Atlantic, including around Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York City.
An expansive winter storm will take shape across the northern Plains on Monday afternoon.
Snow is expected to fall and create difficult travel conditions from Bismarck, North Dakota to Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Minneapolis; Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Madison, Milwaukee and Green Bay, Wisconsin; and Traverse City and Marquette, Michigan.
The highest snowfall totals and worst travel conditions are expected to focus on the upper Mississippi Valley from late Monday to Tuesday night.
Travellers are advised to check the status of their flights to avoid delays.
