Major winter storm to slam millions disrupting travel and leading to power outages that could last weeks

Christopher Nunley

A high-impact winter storm will slam millions Friday through Tuesday as it dives southeast. The storm system will provide areas of heavy snow and areas of heavy freezing rain that will lead to travel concerns and could leave some without power for weeks.

Snow is expected as far south as I-20 with the storm system with significant snow accumulations for parts of the Midwest, Ohio Valley, Southeast, Appalachians, Mid-Atlantic, Great Lakes, and Northeast. Farther southeast, significant ice accumulations are possible for northeastern parts of Georgia and parts of the Carolinas that will cause some major power outage issues and tree damage. Begin planning now for a significant winter storm that will disrupt travel and electricity. Watch the latest video on this storm!

The storm system will impact the Northern Plains and Midwest Friday followed by parts of the Ohio Valley, South, and Southeast late Saturday into Sunday, and the Northeastern quadrant of the country Monday into Tuesday.
